Fill It Up

.

“It’s just endless
what you can learn from
a single work of art.
You can fill up the crevices
of your life,
the cracks of your life,
the places where
the mortar comes out
and falls away-
you can fill it up with
the love of art.’

.

~  Vincent Price

scare
cause fear
shock the nerves
make the heart jump
spook                                    (What Vincent Price was know for.)
.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
spring colors blossom
refreshed after winters sleep
birds and bees arrive

.

Poem:

.

seeing red, totally vivid
ignorant actions that make one  livid
anger is another form of fear
ulterior motives made unclear

emotions that must be explained
to keep the soul from being drained
the lessons to teach patience and tolerance
situations that require our total sufferance

wisdom achieved by learning to listen
uncovering motives that were hidden
Spiritual progress became our ultimate goal
rediscovering the value of our soul

no longer red, what we see is clear
serenity and peace devoid of fear

That Celestial Source

“Every beauty which

is seen here by

persons of perception

resembles more

than anything else

that celestial source

from which we all are come.”

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

Poem:

.

to be a raspberry or not
identified by the purple spot
how did it become the Bronx cheer
fans who consumed one to many a beer

the bush, however, is a thorny problem
bees and butterflies love the blossom
one plant gives birth to a hundred suckers
this is only good if your name is Smuckers

at the local diner berries are the favorite pie
at home, dad’s favorite was the infamous shoofly
topped with ice cream, they are berrie berrie good
berries in a smoothie is well understood

wild berries were lunch for the wandering child
delightful innocence,  and God smiled
that pollution won’t spoil the berries we pray
you, yourself, please have a berry good day
