nothing

happen.”

Elfje:           (Cinquain)

but

and if

or what else

maybe is a possibility

although

Haiku:

.

seasons transition

resting roots, no leaves to feed

tree ring marks the year

Poem:

.

millions upon millions of life stories
some sad, some happy, most just boring
genre is what writers call categories
imagination is the mind exploring

romance, mystery, western, horror
is a book about history really nonfiction
can we believe a diary from the explorer
writing for many is just an addiction

poetry gives one the ability to fabricate
blue, black, purple, no need to color the lie
the author always wins his own debate
choose your own flavor for the pie in the sky

today I am the hero, tomorrow the goat
a wonderful life lived by my own anecdote

what gets lost

in translation.”

Troiku*

.

my world rotates
what can the eye and mind see
between black and white

my world rotates
time goes to  black history
white is the future

white is all colors
what can the eye and mind see
black is the absence

technicolor dreams
is living only visual
between black and white

ME and the Boss

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the first stanza shares the first line of the origina haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the second stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section.
