Useful

.

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

.

~  Ogden Nash

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

verse
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise
hymn

a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

The Ability To Dream

.

“The ability to dream

is all I have to give.

That is my responsibility;

that is my burden.

And even I grow tired.”

.

~ Harlan Ellison

grow

so slow

in a row

go with the flow

know

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

the earth goes around

April showers, May flowers

seasons come and go

Mother Nature is alive

even after we succumb

.

Poem:
.
God is good, all the time
from the omnipotent to the sublime
a Higher Power with many names
studied in a book by William James

the Universe is good and filled with love
all the blessings emanate from above
humans are the perpetrator of all evil
man has invented everything that is illegal

begins with a thought, then the reaction
only the good and love ends in satisfaction
immoral thoughts, wrong actions, a daily double
a dreary future facing so much trouble

Today, be the person your God wants you to be
hopefully one who is happy, joyous and free
