Writing Well

.

.

“Writing well

is the best

revenge.”

.

~  Dorothy Parker

.

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

.

pick

don’t grab

make it quick

catch what you can

choose

.

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

.

you can pick your love

will your choice pick you to love

whose heart gets broken

.

Poem:

.

you can’t win if you don’t play
can we treat life like a child’s game
are you a color or are you a bouquet
is there really something in a name

the clouds diminished into rainbows
the seasons came and went
clover in all colors covers the meadows
in nature nothing is ever spent

so many questions and so few answers
discovered today, obsolete tomorrow
does love motivate flamenco dancers
can eyes wide open see a peep show

I’m so content to ask the question
please, just don’t ask me for the answer

A Hundred Flowers

.

.

“I will be

the gladdest thing

under the sun!

I will touch

a hundred flowers

and not pick one.”

.

~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

flowers

pick one

add some greens

pleasing to the eye

bouquet

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

grief beyond despair

lost feelings

the heart is alone

.

Poem:

.

the fearful little child
climbed the mountain
braved the unknown wild
his youth was a flowing fountain

time, time, time, passed by
responsibilities took their toll
many years pass in the blink of an eye
sometimes with, often, without a soul

held by a disease that kept him captive
he lived a life that was in constant jeopardy
his reflections clouded by an impure motive
guilt and remorse further twisted the memory

a God incident showed him the way
how to live with a backward  brain
a fellowship that taught him to pray
the miracle, a new life for him to gain

time for him has begun to slow down
the joy of living,  one day at a time
