The Illusion Of Poetry

“For my part,

I love to give myself up

to the illusion of poetry.

A hero of fiction that

never existed is just as

valuable to me as a hero

of history that existed

a thousand years ago.”

.

~ Washington Irving

past

before we                         (you, me, us, they, them)

things to remember

history will repeat itself

future

characters to love

my heart knows

good, bad or ugly

Poem:

.

the happy warrior wins the day
with his children he did play

flowers he brought for his wife
a happy home was their way of life

as a couple they knew how to share
motivated by the need to care

at church, together they prayed
the community received their aid

mankind was meant to be this way
be a peacenik, make love, not war today

do your part to be the happy warrior
race and religion, break down the barrier

be the person your God wants you to be
one who enjoys this life, carefree

A Way Of Seeing

“. . . We love fog

because it shifts

old anomalies into

the elements

surrounding them.

It gives relief from

a way of seeing”

water

shallow pond

flowers in blossom

frogs resting on leaves

lily

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

.

evil holocaust

man hates man hates the world

political hell

Poem:

.

the poet bordered on psychosis
inspiration derived by osmosis
his world viewed by anamorphosis
rhymes induced by self hypnosis

the ego seeks deification
dreams of heavenly exaltation
interrupted by bizarre personification
blinded by a frequent transfiguration

to write or not to write
twas never a question
his idea bulb was never that bright
‘why me’ was his favorite expression

and when it was all said and done
the blue ribbon he never won
