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

Never Argue

.
“Never argue

with an idiot.

They will only

bring you down

to their level

and beat you

with experience.”

.

~ George Carlin

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.

slow
just daft
not as fast
the dim light bulb
dumb

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.

natures season turns
sunny hot and muggy days
mild spring is over

.

Poem:   

the promises come true only when we are willing to change
it is the people, places and things we must rearrange
the most important lesson is to change from me to we
it is wonderful to know that a new attitude is free

salvation for the addicted with a backward brain
restored to a new way of thinking that is sane
thinking of consequences before they react
sad that the science of the brain is still inexact

never again to be sorry or to be bored
for the lucky good relationships restored
miracles akin to the rising of the Phoenix bird
sad that the disease is stronger than the word

it matters not to what someone is addicted
the twelve step program can save the afflicted
