Humor and Laughter

.

“Humor is

a prelude

to faith,

and laughter

is the beginning

of prayer.”

.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr

.

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

.

pray

my plea

if you please

may all be fair

grace

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

God given seasons

a prayer of gratitude

just go with the flow

.

Poem:

.

time, time, please slow down Mr. Time . . . .
you are faster than I can rhyme
your speed also made me miss my prime
you look like a mountain that I can never climb

please Mr. Time can you be so kind
promise that you will never leave me behind
I’m trying my best to survive just for today
does it help that you are named when I pray

I do thank you Mr. Time for all of the  memories
grateful to have celebrated so many anniversaries
it is my selfish heart that wants so many more
it is not as though I have been keeping score

I apologize Mr. Time for missing the point
today is the day that I must truly anoint
yesterdays and tomorrows can only cloud my view
today I will enjoy your Time looking for what’s new

Never Serious

.

“Art is the only

serious thing

in the world.

And the artist is

the only person who

is never serious.”

.

~ Oscar Wilde

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

Dali

abstract realism

very small characters

on very large canvas

surrealism          ..    ..    ,,   ,,   ,,   ,,    (seriously ? ? ?)

.

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

.

forever jealous

never content with his own

wanted others things

.

Poem:

.

disorder is the work of an evil spirit
ugly has no bounds or limit
souls that believe they have something to prove
statues and memorials they want to remove

destroying a government is anarchy
believing there is no need for a moral code, insanity
yet the majority are afraid of the minority
defund the police, let’s give evil the authority

the press divides when they take sides
a few wealthy trying to push the tides
there is no need to apologize
peace allows everyone to share the prize

let’s use that energy to make an improvement
let the teaching of history define our movement
let God be the definition of pure order
maybe tomorrow, within our border
