It Found Me

.

“I wasn’t meant

for reality,

but life came

and found me.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

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

frost

cold rime

creek to lake

all things that froze

ice

.

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

.

winter cold persist

glad to see daylight growing

spring stands in the wings

.

Poem:

.

magnolia blossoms aroma wafted above
young hearts below dreaming of love
springs chilly rain waters tomorrows hope
urges so strong that make some want to elope

generation after generation, God’s design
who can argue that it is not divine
fill your dreams with all you can imagine
be ready to accept whatever may happen

the quiet mind knows serene
renew ancient faith as did St. Augustine
with this life there is not a guarantee
it will be or it was meant not to be             (said Shakespeare)

stay young and always dream of love
for love will bring blessings from above

No Other Rule

“Write

what you like;

there is no

other rule.”

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

.

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

glee

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

beautiful sky

sun and mist

rainbows everywhere

Poem:

.

looking, lost, trying to find fantasyland
this ugly, smelly reality I cannot stand
transport me to a faraway zone
let me hide by using a clone

let’s create a new space and call it Love
built with the blessings received from above
air and noise pollution may not exist
the sky above always rainbow kissed

soft melodies provided by the birds and the bees
herbal aromas wafting about on a fresh breeze
every trail and path lined with a display floral
the horizon represented by a bucolic mural

a sirens scream, a grieving mothers wail
back to earth, dreams wasted to no avail
a bang and a thud, everything used and abused
only the crazy from this world are excused

to cope, one must adjust the altitude
work hard at keeping a good attitude
let reality suck, if it must
let go, relax, in God you must trust
