The Untier Of Knots

.

“The poet is

an untier of

knots,

and love

without words

is a knot,

and it drowns.”

~  Gabriela Mistral

.

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

.

kind

be good

treat me fair

do next right thing

love

.

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

.

bawling, sobs and tears

she, who was the drama queen

never to console

.

Poem:

.

searching for my inner strength
for my love I would go to any length
speaking the truth with only candor
never a hint of being a philander

learning that the perfect word is we
in all affairs, to be as honest as can be
to face the good times and the bad
having a trust that is truly ironclad

the deepest feelings, more than a friend
someone on whom you can always depend
the best partner ever for playing charades
a person with whom you can count decades

the heart that will go with me to any length
the soul who leads me to my inner strength

A Dupe To Illusions

.

“Perhaps it is better

to wake up after all,

even to suffer,

rather than to remain

a dupe to illusions

all one’s life.”

.

~ Kate Chopin

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

disillusion

total confusion

another optical illusion

never a forgone conclusion

frustration

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

selfish, self-centered

no respect

me, me, only me

.

Poem:

.

politics as usual

the ego is seeking the publicity
the ultimate goal is duplicity
those who support them are guilty of complicity
gerrymandering has nothing to do with simplicity

vilifying the opponent, close to slander
heaven forbid that they would use candor
the working man an innocent bystander
they will saying anything just to pander

race, color, creed just a percentage
more human fodder made into a silage
writers avoiding the subliminal message
vote for me, avoid the looming presage

liberal, conservative, middle of the road
to which vote is our allegiance owed
is there still such a thing as a moral code
don’t let this be just another repeat episode

a government by the people and for the people
may it ring from each and every church steeple
just once, may we have the truth come out
believe, have faith, your vote does have clout
