The Most Vivid

.

“Poetry is only the

highest eloquence of passion,

the most vivid form of expression

that can be given to our

conception of anything,

whether pleasurable or painful,

mean or dignified,

delightful or distressing.”

.

~ William Hazlitt

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sleep

sweet child

visions of sugarplums

dancing in your head

lullaby

.

Haiku:

.

hope springs eternal

winter succumbs to the sun

spring burst through the snow

.

Poem:

.

the optimist sees happy
pulling peppermint taffy
strolling the boardwalk by the sea
laughs and giggles snorted with glee
banter returned with a sally
sights and sounds enjoyed for free

one should not take themselves too seriously
however, demeanor should be held virtuously
always choose the perfect time to be silly
your opinion is the only one that counts, really
retribution is no reason to be an offender
usually better to be and equal rights defender

flights of fancy with no rhyme or reason
kindness and love need no season
stream of conscious not written in prose
picture the aroma of a perfect red rose
sometimes it is good to let the poem think
fear can push anyone over the brink

marshmallow clouds served for lunch
having fun is always a good hunch
forever chasing the proverbial rainbows
enjoying life from from toes to nose
getting sloppy wet kisses from a puppy
the optimist always sees the happy

Whatever It Is

.

“I am solitary

as grass.

What is it I miss?

Shall I ever find it,

whatever it is?”

.
~ Sylvia Plath

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

stupid

can’t learn

memorized by rote

having not yet learned

ignorant

.

Haiku:

.

bright lightning flashes

loud thunder claps following

furious wind gust

.

Poem:

.

It goes, whatever It is.
It will go on without me.
It is life, the quiz.
It is never free.

It is the good question.
It is the dubious answer.
It is the impression.
It is the brain power.

if I caught It
what would I do with It
life is such a nebulous It
living is to enjoy It

It comes.
It goes.
is It a plan from a Higher Source
It is whatever you want It to be

tag – – – your It
