A Witch’s Brew

.

“Poetry operates

by hints and

dark suggestions.

It is full of secrets

and hidden formulae,

like a witch’s brew.”

a birthday today
God blessed him to live this long
now older than  dirt

pleasant memories abound
a simple life lived with love

.

Poem:

.

The only truth we have
is the real life we have lived
haim, life in Hebrew, to the rav
from memory the past is derived

ego’s pride makes up the lies
the false life we wanted to live
trying to avoid the booby prize
avoiding effort we needed to give

was it real or was it a dream
times swift pace makes life a blur
layers of reality from a deep running stream
ambitions which events had us defer

Tomorrow, God granted,
will we live the truth
with real can we be contented
or must we seek the fountain of youth

don’t waste time waiting for the last dance
if you are given that last chance
live a life that you want to be true
a life with no lies is easy to review

Tuesday

flowers lowes 046

.

Haibun :
(I think)
Tuesday, the lost day
Most days have an importance
Start, middle or end.

What inspires a Tuesday
it hardly registers as a newsday
just another space on the calendar
it doesn’t even make one wonder

the only time it is considered great
is when your birthday falls on that date
Tuesday has just one chance in seven
that here on earth you will find your heaven

so if you want to just go and hide
Pick Tuesday to be your guide.

.

another great day

yesterday or tomorrow

one day at a time

ELFJE

happiness

born today,

loved forever, Tuesday’s

child is filled with

grace
