A Dormant Poet

“Know that there

is often hidden

in us a dormant poet,

always young and alive.”

.
~ Alfred De Musset-Pathay

hibernating

nature sleeping

frozen in time

all the world quiescent

dormant

.

Senryu:

.

fear made him strike out

it was mock sabre rattling

feigned anger and rage

.

Poem:

.

glorious flights of fantasy
having fun ignoring reality
this world is just too damn serious
everyone trying to solve the mysterious

was it a giggle or was it a snicker
candy is dandy but liquor is quicker
only the normal claim to be normal
you must be a God to say you’re immortal

every day is a good day for a party
just ask the big pooka named Harvey
no reason is ever needed to celebrate
all that is required is a few people to congregate

it is the happier occasions we love to keep
all those things and a good nights sleep
double the fun, lets have a tag team match
just remember where they put the escape hatch

having so much fun, wish this could go on forever
if not, we’ll quote the granddaughter, “Whatever.”

The Veil Of Order

.

“In a work of art,

chaos must shimmer

through the veil

of order.”

shake

all around

like Elvis did

was banned in Boston

shimmy                              (Shimmy ko ko bop)

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

green fields turn to orange

again Nature recycles

as pumpkin time nears

Poem:

.

ghost, goblins, ghouls, zombies
tis the season of the undead
movies based on scary stories
beware of the body without a head

door to door on all hallows’ eve
about the religious significance a little naive
the big kids would trick or treat
we knew everyone up and down the street

bed sheets for costumes, one size fits all
competing to get the biggest haul
candy and enough apples to make a pie
so much sugar I could really fly

times change, much trust has been lost
could we bring back the reason at any cost

Allhallowtide, Hallowtide, Allsaintstide, or the Hallowmas season,
is the triduum encompassing the Western Christian observances
of All Saints’ Eve (Halloween), All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and
All Souls’ Day, which last from 31 October to 2 November annually.
