A Crack

.

“There is

a crack

in everything.

That’s how

the light

gets in.”

~   Leonard Cohen

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

light

denotes love

God’s great creation

ideas that really matter

bright

.

Haiku:

.

howling wind blows east

snow creates whiteout blizzard

life is put on hold

.

.

Poem:

.

there once was a lady from Minneapolis
her credo in life was happiness
she began each morning with a prayer to God
this wondrous universe she would applaud

a great big smile she always wore
for her being kind was never a chore
her every action showed unconditional love
sharing the graces she received from above

her daily focus was to do God’s will
never to make a mountain out of a molehill
for the sick and suffering she was patient
never took things for granted, was never complacent

for the stupid and ignorant she was tolerant
she was very very proud to be independent
for the misguided she was forgiving
content she was with her standard of living

each day ended with a prayer of gratitude
for being seen and not being viewed

Living Poems

.

.

“Ye are better than all the ballads

That ever were sung or said;

For ye are living poems,

And all the rest are dead.”

Haiku:

tropical storms bring ruin

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

rainbows bring their hope

life and spirits lifted up

smiles with ohs and ahs

.

Poem:

.

the weather has a profound force
one’s moods it does endorse

clouds and rain a feeling of doom
grey and black describing gloom

a calm starry night renders awe
magnified when viewed upon the utah

bright sunlight warms the soul
a creators vision to extol

rainbows and butterflies
smiles, to the eyes a colorful prize

equatorial deserts and muggy rain forest
nice to visit if you are a tourist

beware of the cold , the blizzard
accused of creating the lounge lizard

for those whose winter sports are euphoric
they need to learn the word phantasmagoric*

how to beat the weather blues
time to take a Caribbean/Mediterranean cruise

defeat the weather, put on a happy mood
for being able to put your mind anywhere, have gratitude

*phantasmagoric:  having a fantastic or deceptive appearance,
as something in a dream or created by the imagination.
having the appearance of an optical illusion, especially one
produced by a magic lantern. The Greek word phantasma,
meaning “image,” is the ancestor of phantasmagoric, a word
you can use to describe anything so weird it doesn’t seem real.
