No / Yes

.

“After the final no

there comes a yes /

And on that yes

the future world depends.”

.

― Wallace Stevens

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

action

doing something

with a purpose

going forward, not backwards

reaction

Haiku:

.

spring rains have arrived

brown earth turns to vibrant green

flowers add color

Poem:                  (Roundelay)

.

in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

Paradiso

.

“It is difficult

to write a paradiso

when all the superficial

indications are that

you ought to write

an apocalypse.”

.

~ Ezra Pound

Elfje:           (Cinquain)

Eden

perfect love

heaven’s holy realm

the hearts inner circle

paradise

.

Haiku:

.

gentle cooling breeze

golden leaves begin to fall

fields yield their harvest

.

Poem:

.

mumbling through a foggy dream
sleep walking on a balance beam
haunted by many past indiscretions
practicing the giving of false impressions

never satisfied with the life I lived
envious of those who have so much to give
of material things I was jealous
resentful or those whose lives were zealous

found some steps to show me the way
a path that lead me out of the gray
lead by an unlikely band of kindred spirit
positive souls with spunk and merit

who knew that life could begin again
a reason to live, new purposes to attain
a disease that can be put into remission
a Higher Power’s will brought to fruition

ever mindful of the built in forgetter
off to a meeting to help me get better
always thankful for that fateful God incident
knowing that it was not a simple coincident

being positive, being the person my God wants me to be
a soul lucky enough to be happy, joyous and free
