Nothing Is Always Something

.

“Don’t you just love

poetry that gives you

a crinkly feeling

up and down your back?”

.

~ L.M. Montgomery,

Anne of Green Gables

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

nothing
to see
with eyes closed
use the other senses
something

.

Haiku:

.

welcomed steady rain
water to refresh the earth
giving life to all

.

Poem:

.

nothing is always something
seeing is never believing
fingers and heart are touching
hearing can be very deceiving

words can be extremely confusing
know it alls will say anything
accidental puns are amusing
blessings reside in the fairy ring

love can mean so many things
a kindness is never wasted
bells toll when the angel gets its wings
when will peace be created

something does not have to be an action
nothing can give rise to moral satisfaction

Speak Wildly

.

“The poet knows

that he speaks

adequately,

then, only when

he speaks somewhat

wildly.”

.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

illusion

minds eye

what could be

listening to the silence

imagination

.

Haiku:

.

gurgling fountains

pond covered with lily pads

croaking frogs chime in

.

Poem:
.

why argue,
does anyone remember
how to have a discussion,
debate has become a monologue

arbitration skills long forgotten
ignorance leads to a temper shorten
does he who yells the loudest win
isn’t anger and rage a deadly sin

is it the ego that says we can’t be wrong
is it the will that must be strong
or is it just a deep seated need to dramatize
what does it take to compromise

for some it seems to be just a bad habit
for a covey it’s just another sabbat
an addicts need to be antisocial
paranoia that grows exponential

be wise, keep your mouth shut
a flappy jaw will expose your butt
arguing with the idiot makes you the moron
think outside of the box, be the sharpest crayon

engage the brain before running the mouth
be sure to speak only the truth
if you must argue, for God’s sake
be a humble loser and buy the cake
