The Silence Between Them

.

Notes

don’t make music

until you learn

to insert silence

between them.”

.

~ Ben Folds

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

.

pause

one note

white keys, black keys

chords to make tune

rest

.

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

.

ice forms on the branch

winter arrival announced

last leaves fall to ground

.

Poem:

.

quiet the noisy mind
be amazed at what you will find
rare feelings called serenity and peace
appreciation of this world to increase

silence, God’s opportunity to talk
enjoyed while taking an evening walk
wind and waves provide the best music
natures company a nice therapeutic

it takes a friend to break the silence
one willing to give good guidance
two souls that enjoy a mutual trust
a beautiful union sprinkled with angel dust

walk softly but carry a big love
quietly enjoy the blessings from above

The Face Of God

.

“To love

another person

is to see the

face of God.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

face

look to

fight to win

see what is ahead

confront

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

love is in the air

the atmosphere is pleasing

beautiful people

a gleeful wedding party

everyone has the feeling

.

Poem:

.

every thought is a prayer
a question or an answer to declare
no need to kneel beside the bed
close the eyes and clear the head

gratitude must be a part of the morning prayer
identifying, trying not to compare
challenging a faith that comes and goes
a soul that doubts what others propose

my whole life has been a wish and a prayer
the outcome, I deem, has been unfair
in God’s time all prayers are answered
like wildflowers his blessings scattered

it is alright to borrow someone else’s prayer
knowing that a prayer will go everywhere
some may receive its benefits, some may not
what is nice is that you gave them a thought

be careful what you pray for,
you might just get it
