All Things Created

.

All things created

have an order

in themselves,

and this begets

the form that

lets the universe

resemble God.”

.

~ Dante Alighieri

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

God

an image

an individual concept

personal belief

Creator

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

the death of a spouse

impossible to explain

emotions denied

.

Poem:

.

he loved everything
he overused and abused the word
how can one love a bee sting
his love had become absurd

a beautiful soul taught him to like
appreciate became a new guideline
a new kindness invaded his psych
love was the tingling up and down his spine

he learned to hesitate before he judged
the single label ‘love’ did no longer work
another’s passion he no longer begrudged
he discovered a real life and love was a perk

for the rest of his life he spread the joy
admonishing others not to misuse the word love
he encouraged kindness the most to employ
to share the compassion we receive from above

A Lump In The Throat

“You too?”

She asked Ruth.

“How do your poems

start out?”

“They start as

a lump in the throat,”

she said.

Poem:

.

today is a happy day
why ? ? ?
because my attitude said so
a decision to go with the flow

today is a glorious day
why ? ? ?
because my Higher Power made it that way
it even gets better when I pray

today is a perfect day
why ? ? ?
because my God doesn’t make any junk
even better since I stopped getting drunk

today is a beautiful day
why ? ? ?
beauty is in the eye of the beholder
the Pieta was carved from a marble boulder

today is a magnificent day
why ? ? ?
because the Great Creator gave us words
spectacularimpressivestrikingglorioussuperb,
majesticawesomebreathtaking, splendiferous

today is a wonderful day
why ? ? ?
because it is my day and that’s the way I want it
hope you can do the same for your day
