Forever

“Art

is long,

and

Time

is fleeting.”

.

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Elfje:

.

art

time fly’s

making sweet music

when you’re having fun

eternity

.

Haiku:

.

air conditioning

mechanical invention

not the real season

.

Poem:

.

did Frost care about his legacy

as an American icon in his own time

was Poe ever concerned about his identity

as an editor he offended very many

.

the poet laments man’s frailty

founded on historic and trending times

lemmings dressed as soldiers bravely

lying on hearts and minds weighty

.

most never notice that life goes on

consumed with ego and pressing demands

not the sharpest in the box of crayon

like a tortoise into their shell withdrawn

.

there are two sides to every coin

to be politically correct, bi-polar

the mind has it’s own life to purloin

dramatic pretenses trying to be soigne

.

is it a discussion or an argument

will there be a winner or a loser

males driven by the domestic termagant

or is she just the trophies ornament

.

the diplomatic never gives in to either side

inspiration for the next installment

is there a soul who has never lied

it is not our wants that life will provide

.

forget the legacy, let us just play pretend

lose the identity and be the chameleon

who cares, life is nothing but a tiny godsend

enjoy this chance, be a loving dividend.

Tales To Spin

.

“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”

.

― Shel Silverstein

.

Elfje:

.

imagination

contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed

tales

.

Haiku:

.

what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place

.

Poem:

.

let go or be pulled along

replace it with something better

does every life need a theme song

are we marked with a scarlet letter

.

seeking positive reinforcement

family and friends the preferred source

proud to receive a personal endorsement

stepping stones to  life’s best course

.

the devil dines on the negative

set your table with the bright optimistic

the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited

allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic

.

focused on the here and now

have faith, you do know how.
