The Final Achievement

.

“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

eased
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me
pleased
.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
.
please pay the piper
compensate
donate to the cause

Poem:
.

azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun

cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.

A True Poet

.

“He who draws noble delights

from sentiments of poetry

is a true poet,

though he has never written

a line in all his life.”

Poem:

.

mother cultivated the beautiful iris
from Spanish iris translates to mean rainbow
exquisite colors which remain nameless
captured in the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh

pleasurable emotions tied to beauty
all creation is in perfect balance
except for the crazy who are a little fruity
and those who went down the hole with Alice

the birds and the bees, nature’s splendor
the males awesome colors to attract a mate
the sitting female camouflaged to fool the predator
except for the nerd who can’t get a date

we guess the exception is there to keep the balance
a unique place for the wanna be, the pretender
what God has provided in normals absence
in a mother’s heart everyone is a contender
