Savor The Moments

.

‘Savor the moments

that are warm

and special

and giggly.”

.

~ Sammy Davis, Jr.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

jest

not real

just for fun

it makes me laugh

joke

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

just as God made it

natural

adapting to now

.

Poem:

.

please read
it may be just what you need
a kick in the pants to get you started
a journey not for the fainthearted

let us take a trip to nowhere
where productive thinking is very rare
destination: the seat of government
a place full of fanciful wonderment

how did these clowns ever get elected
making laws common sense rejected
a politician’s authority for personal gain
corruption, graft, the richest gravy train

how can they afford those huge mansions
a slap on the wrist that they call sanctions
Nepotism, Cronyism, who’s not qualified ?
their excuse is that their hands are tied

bad lawyers running to assuage their egotism
their dictionaries do not include the word altruism
always at conflict with their primary purpose
acting like wolves going for an opponents carcass

billionaires bought the last election
has democracy lost its moral direction
now is the time to do your part
vote with your head, not with your heart

Or

“I do not know

which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or

the beauty of innuendos

The blackbird whistling

Or

just after.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

either

which one

choices that confound

so many to choose from

or

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

stupid cannot learn

ignorant has yet to learn

do we have a choice ? ? ?

.

Poem:

.

we have a choice
to be mean or kind
signaled by a tone of voice
habits which spring to mind

when angered do we see red
when kind do we hear the angels sing
can we see inside of our head
do we get another life with the golden ring

should the stupid carry a flag
are humans on the decline
does love carry a price tag
when will life have to resign

choices, democracy or socialism
there is no compromise,
since neither leads to altruism
will this be man’s demise

will there be one soul left who will know the outcome
why worry, why save, go ahead and eat the last piece of pie
when all else fails, just choose not to be glum
even during daytime there are stars in the sky

be the optimist, be kind
have faith, a loving Creator made this His ultimate design.
