Beauty, Wisdom and Truth

.

“Poetry and art

nourish the soul

of the world with

the flavor-filled

substances of beauty,

wisdom and truth.”

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

noise

harsh, strident

acoustical echoes clash

street aromas added throughout

cacophony

Haiku:

.

cool air morning rime

winters hand refuses to fade

flowers, birds protest

Beauty, Wisdom and Truth

.

the fat cat sleeps at her feet
morning light enters her chamber
noises begin to rise from the street
the fireplace glows with it’s last ember

nights filled with pleasant dreams
her many years filled with pleasure
fields of plenty beside flowing streams
the memories which are her treasure

like many she has loved and lost
yet she would not let her heart be broken
she knew her stars were crossed
yet no mean words were ever spoken

she arises giving gratitude to God
arms stretched wide to welcome the sun
eyes glinting with happiness, the smile ever broad
always able, ready and willing to have some fun

mother of my children, grandmother to theirs
always and ever the answer to my prayers

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
