Writing Well

.

.

“Writing well

is the best

revenge.”

.

~  Dorothy Parker

.

.

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

.

pick

don’t grab

make it quick

catch what you can

choose

.

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

.

you can pick your love

will your choice pick you to love

whose heart gets broken

.

Poem:

.

you can’t win if you don’t play
can we treat life like a child’s game
are you a color or are you a bouquet
is there really something in a name

the clouds diminished into rainbows
the seasons came and went
clover in all colors covers the meadows
in nature nothing is ever spent

so many questions and so few answers
discovered today, obsolete tomorrow
does love motivate flamenco dancers
can eyes wide open see a peep show

I’m so content to ask the question
please, just don’t ask me for the answer

Suggestiveness


Nobody, I think,

ought to read poetry,

or look at pictures or statues,

who cannot find a great deal

more in them than the poet

or artist has actually expressed.

Their highest merit is suggestiveness.

.

– Nathaniel Hawthorne

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

interpretation

artist intent

imaginative figurative  portrayal

nothing that is literal

ambiguity

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

beautiful lady

classic poise

man’s greatest desire

.

Poem:

.

does God have a heart
does He think and feel
is He above being smart
is He really, really, real

why does everything have an opposite
will good possibly overcome evil
could hate or love predominate
shall man ever learn to be civil

if we had the answers
would it matter anyways
everything succumbs to cancers
does God count in days

is this life to be enjoyed ? ? ?
if so, ignore the answers and questions
know that the end we cannot avoid
and just follow mothers directions
