Time

.

“Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions,

And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of a toast and tea.”

.

~ T.S. Eliot

walking in the rain

hiding tears

life’s disappointment

Poem:

.

how boring, a life without emotions
keep it simple, nothing too wacky
if they would only arrive in unequal quotients
a little sad, but mostly just happy

is it the merry go round
or is it the roller coaster
what constitutes a mind that is sound
remembering the cat clinging to the poster

today, it is let go and let God
my emotions, where I want them to be
making sure to never act the fraud
praying only on bended knee

life best lived with a positive attitude
a solid foundation built with gratitude

All That Glitters

.

“For you may palm

upon us

new for old:

All,

as they say,

that glitters,

is not gold.”

~  John Dryden

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

shallow babbling brook

from the mountains melting snow

stocked with rainbow trout

 

will global warming kill it

will pollution get there first

.

Poem:

.

the beautiful grandchild giggles
the laugh of the innocent young
the walk is mostly unstable wiggles
to mother’s hem she desperately clung

smiling until she wants something
small grunts eventually become crocodile tears
your heart she is constantly touching
now realizing how quickly went the years

remembering when her father had no fears
could or would not give up trying for nothing
each new step rewarded with cheers
win or lose there was always the loving

praying that her generation will live in peace
that man’s selfish insanity will soon cease
