I’m Not Lost

.

“I’m not lost

for I know

where I am.

But however,

where I am

may be lost.”

.

~ A. A. Milne

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

lost

can’t find

out of sight

nowhere to be seen

misplaced

.

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

.

a contented smile

mother contemplates her child

God’s purpose fulfilled

.

Poem:

.

even with all of your flaws, I love you
hope you love me too, warts and all
together, every day is something new
always glad to be at your beck and call

content to tolerate life’s ups and downs
seeing how others work things through
always willing to bring in the clowns
demanding more than just to make do

you are the answer to my prayer
an angel sent from heaven above
giving someone a life to share
knowing what it means to love

you will be forever in my heart
life or death can never take us apart

Just Do It

.

.

Writing is like sex.

First you do it for love,

then you do it for your friends,

and then you do it for money.”

.

~ Virginia Woolf

Title:  Adeline Virginia Woolf

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

watching the grass grow

one of nature’s miracles

interdependent

cows rummage and produce milk

humans steal it to nourish

.

Poem:

.

a babbling brook fed by melting snow
reflecting silver from the full moon’s glow
the nightingale’s song providing harmony
the hoot owls rhythm fitting in perfectly

nature does abhor man’s interference
his scars diminishing her appearance
burning and plowing causing a blight
pollution blocking the vital sunlight

man’s forest of concrete and steel
dams, locks and levees most surreal
environmentalist fighting a losing battle
money confusing the issue with psychobabble

prognosticators using the magic eight ball
only God really knows what will befall
let’s live today to its fullest potential
put generosity first, that is essential

be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant
allow your Higher Power to be preponderant
repeating the prayers from a bended knee
living a life; happy, joyous and free
