Mixed Feelings

.

“Poetry might

be defined

as the clear

expression of

mixed feelings.”

.

~  W.H. Auden

.

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

.

kind

be nice

me and you

two make a whole

love

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

mixed feelings arise
cry or laugh
just try to do both
.

Poem:

.
escorted by a flock of angels
the child was full of expectations
disappointments followed and his life was overrun
he chased away the angels, one by one

the devil saw his opening and pounced
a claim to the child’s soul he pronounced
sitting on the child’s shoulder the devil was right at home
looking for trouble the child did roam

the devil made sure trouble found him
the child became a man who lived in sin
drugs, alcohol, corrupting others morals
he boasted he invented the negative laurels

Satan’s disease wanted him to be alone
suicide the devil did condone
use and abuse lead him to the brink
his soul was bound using his blood as ink

to God every soul is a special prize
so God sent him an angel in disguise
the angel lead him to a place called the recovery hole
a place where he could redeem his soul

he found a room filled with kindred soul
one day at a time was their only goal
unconditional love, to think about others
similar stories all shared by brothers

suggested changes, the devil’s regret
they forgive the past, but never forget
his sobriety hinges on being altruistic
he learned a new language that is euphemistic

he has spiritual tools to keep the devil at bay
a Higher Power to whom he can pray
as he and his angel do the dance divine
today, for them, it is just one day at a time

He Feels

.

“I want to touch people

with my art.

I want them to say

‘he feels deeply,

he feels tenderly’.”

.

~ Vincent van Gogh

truce

calm time

peace of mind

lull past the storm

quiet

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

hearts were intertwined

perfect love

God’s holy union

.

Poem:

.

to be the person who can love
a gift which comes from above
it all starts with loving yourself
a contented soul who can lend oneself

Love is forever.
Love is no problem whatsoever
Love knows no limits
Love is devoid of all gimmicks

Love is a whisper heard by you alone
Love is the best feeling man has known
Love is to be whatever, as silly as it seems
Love is the fulfillment of the souls dreams

Love is to fly with the angels’
Love is having no expectations
Love is every second of every day
Love is love when you give it away.

Love is His gift to all alike.
Especially for the lucky guy named Mike
Love is serenity.
Love is eternity.

Love is helping someone love themselves.

This, and some of the above, was/are some of December’s
“Love is …..”
Love is the key to the Uni-verse.
Love is enjoying the right perspective.
Love is a lot of letting go.
Love is like magic in that both take practice.
Love is holding nothing back.
Love is for those that need it;  and don’t we all ???
Love is creating.
