Self-understanding

.

.

“For what is a poem

but a hazardous attempt

at self-understanding:

it is the deepest part

of autobiography.”

.

– Robert Penn Warren

Elfje: (Cinquain)

Happiness
Supreme delight
Attaining considerable good
Manna for the soul
Felicity

.

Haiku:

.

felt but rarely seen

hot or cold the air shimmers

visible seasons

.

Poem:

.

A beautiful thing

a work of art

it makes the soul sing

the flowers in the cart

the bird on the wing

Mother Nature knows her part

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me

 

the subtle curves of the human body

the rainbow displaying all of the colors

the culture that enjoys decors gaudy

or is it natures well camouflaged wonders

 

beauty grows when viewed from the heart

to touch, to smell, to imagine, satisfaction

is there a real message in abstract art

or just wishing to evoke a shocked reaction

 

calm, serene enjoying the aesthetic

a positive attitude of happiness

to looking beyond the artificial cosmetic

wonderful memories that are priceless

the real, the surreal, never synthetic

accepting all splendor as God’s kindness

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me

The Rhythmical Creation Of Beauty

.

“I would define,

in brief,

the poetry of words

as the rhythmical

creation of Beauty.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

.

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

soothing

gentle sounds

pleasing gossamer dreams

still water runs deep

brooks

 

.

Haiku:

.

thunder lightening rain

God’s wonderful theater

life giving waters

.

Poem:

.

I can see the setting with my minds eye

with my words I want you to see it too

use your imagination, let it fly

let us all take a trip to the emotional zoo

.

let us start with the family, we know them best

Dad doesn’t count, his emotions are hidden

question his feelings he would flunk this test

real men don’t cry; a tear, heaven forbidden

.

Mom’s usually have all of the passion

child bearing, child rearing stretches the sensibilities

following Dr. Spock or whoever is the current fashion

in the end, Mothers intuition is the God given ability

.

Siblings, a curse or a blessing

some are like Mom, some are like Dad

memories fueled by feelings worth expressing

the best times, the worst times we have ever had

.

neighbors and friends can fill the zoo

from cuddly koalas to to the always hungry lion

over the cuckoo’s nest some of them flew

personally they all made their own bed to lie in

.

paint the picture, yourself, family and others

what colors do their personalities represent

the vibrant peacock, the camouflaged laughing hyenas

use your mental imagery how many matches can you invent

.

see the picture

who is the sicker

can’t go to the zoo

without looking for you

.
