Little Words

When you are gone,
there is nor bloom nor leaf,
Nor singing sea at night,

nor silver birds;
And I can only stare,

and shape my grief
In little words.


Dorothy Parker

Senryu:

born to be happy

was loved and knew how to love

with a heart of gold

.

Poem:

.

here’s hoping that your every day is a Sunday
giving your Higher Power a day to rest
having gratitude for each and every day
doing His will makes it the best

accepting life without a worry
always trying to do the next right thing
do it now so later you won’t have to hurry
please don’t cry over the broken shoe string

begin each day with an attitude of gratitude
best to know that you have a choice
better to be seen than being viewed
show your love by using a happy voice

don’t pay Peter by what from Paul you rob
always the choice, happiness is an inside job

The Reality Of Your Life

.

“What’s writing

really about?

It’s about trying to

take fuller possession

of the reality

of your life.”

true facts

cannot be denied

looking for more sympathy

loves the attention

Poem:

.

it is raining, God’s most precious gift
the tonic that gives everyone a lift
animal and vegetable alike
even the little boy whose name is Mike

except when it was time to clean behind his ears
Mother only laughed at his crocodile tears
an Aquarius, he took to water like a fish
his favorite snack was Mother’s knish

he was a sneak and from the truth he fled
his whole world existed inside his head
a loner by nature, he never had a friend
never someone on whom you could depend

drinking too much never helped his disposition
that and his total lack of any ambition
too many jobs to count, many marriages failed
could never remember how many times he was jailed

a devine miracle, God struck him sober
he became a human instead of an ogre
he found his soul, a smile gave him a facelift
behind the rain he is now God’s next best gift
