Quiet Please

.

“Poetry is

the least imposition

on silence

in a world

of chatter.”

.

~ Marvin Bell

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

talk

ignoring reticence

dominating the conversation

pompous know it all

chatter

.

Haiku:

.

blossoms are blooming

natures perpetual song

bees and butterflies

.

Poem:

.

some talk to hear themselves talk

some chatter because they fear the silence

the noise doesn’t help them walk the walk

emotionally there is no balance

.

it is not the words spoken

it is the actions that count

all riders need a token

many quandaries to surmount

.

life is to grow up and change

become the best person you can be

many priorities we must rearrange

not me but you will be the key

.

seeking happy, joyous and free

serenity and peace of mind

when sobriety adorns your marquee

recovery is what you will find.

Must It Be Understood ? ? ?

“I’ve written

some poetry

I don’t understand

myself”

.

~ Carl Sandburg

.

.

Elfje:   (also known as a Cinquain)

.

words

homonym, homophone

similar but different

sounds like but not

understand

.

Haiku:

.

true spring has arrived

jasmine fragrance fills the air

sinuses react

.

Poem:

.

the jasmine, the jasmine, the blooms proliferate

the arbor moans under the vines weight

the fragrant aroma wafts through an open window

for the chickadees there is a convenient pillow

.

every blossom so intricately designed

as a host there is a scrumptious feast refined

just like snow flakes there are never two the same

for the Great Creator there is a miracle to acclaim

.

the garden is a frame for the artists blank canvas

colors and shapes developed like a poems stanzas

Mother Nature provides the pallet of a rainbow

the gardeners blueprint is their personal trousseau

.

delightful, wonderful, awesome, a subject never boring

real or imagined, my your garden always be most adoring.
