It’s Ended

.

“How does a poet

know when a poem

is ended?

Because it lies flat, taut;

nothing can be added

or subtracted.”

~ Carol Shields

Elfje: Cinquain

.

one

or two

but not three

no need to count

more

Haiku:

.

the wild universe

natural phenomenon

ever evolving

Poem:

.

good , better, best
another day that God has blessed
new events we call the news
usually something that we do not choose

a good day, nothing happened at all
not even handwriting on the wall
food on the table, the roof stayed up
love overflowed the proverbial cup

a better day, something really nice happened
an incident that no one could have imagined
the post it note for a happy memory
a warm thought for the hearts treasury

the best day, God had better plans than I did
on that day He proved that every pot has a lid
it was the day He introduced me to the one I love
daily I thank the heavens and the God above

blessings for you, may today be your best
may you easily pass every stress test
pray that your silver linings turn to gold
may the love you give be returned two fold

Don’t Be Sorry

.

Live,

travel,

adventure,

bless,

and don’t be sorry.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

question

why me

why not me

a Higher Power’s design

everything

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

do not pity me

God has a purpose for all

love consumes all things

try to do His will

do the next right thing

Poem:             The “Décima” is a Spanish style or form of musical poetry
that contains 10 lines of eight syllables.
The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc.
You (as I have done here) can break the stanza up in abba/accd/dc.

.

the music begins quietly
the beat is measured and steady
the dancers are poised and ready
their steps are made so silently

every move made decisively
all builds to a loud crescendo
no hint of an innuendo
a quadrille for merry lancers

smiles, laughter for band and dancers
finally a decrescendo
