Suggestiveness


Nobody, I think,

ought to read poetry,

or look at pictures or statues,

who cannot find a great deal

more in them than the poet

or artist has actually expressed.

Their highest merit is suggestiveness.

– Nathaniel Hawthorne

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

interpretation

artist intent

imaginative figurative  portrayal

nothing that is literal

ambiguity

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

beautiful lady

classic poise

man’s greatest desire

.

Poem:

.

does God have a heart
does He think and feel
is He above being smart
is He really, really, real

why does everything have an opposite
will good possibly overcome evil
could hate or love predominate
shall man ever learn to be civil

if we had the answers
would it matter anyways
everything succumbs to cancers
does God count in days

is this life to be enjoyed ? ? ?
if so, ignore the answers and questions
know that the end we cannot avoid
and just follow mothers directions

Anything Can Happen

.

“One breath

taken completely;

one poem,

fully written,

fully read –

in such a moment,

anything can happen.”

.

~ Jane Hirshfield

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

totally

belly laugh

filled with pleasure

life lived in happiness

awesome

.

Haiku:

.

the crack of the bat

boys of summer playing games

family together

.

Poem:

.

in the blink of an eye
lightning split the sky
the thunder however
rolled on and on forever

the smell of ozone lingered
another flash answered
rain drops began their pitter patter
to the ducks it doesn’t really matter

like clockwork the afternoon showers arrive
grass, flowers, weeds, growing in overdrive
the deluge over, the humidity swells
pleasant gardens adorned with cockleshells

did mankind really evolve
another question we may never solve
so many questions, so few answers
are we creating our own cancers

let it rain, let it shine
just stand in awe of the worlds design
