This Is The Way

.

“This is the way

the world ends

Not with a bang

but a whimper.

.

~   T.S. Eliot

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

chance

dumb luck

incident or coincidence

right place right time

encounter

.

Haiku:

.

cold frosty mornings

mountain blazes red and gold

leaves begin to fall

.

.

Poem:

.

ice on the windows, spidery crystals
a fingernail scratches her initials
the winter light colored the clouds gray
it was too cold to go out and play

she waited for father to come home from work
he worked down at the wharfs as a shipping clerk
his arrival would warm her heart
it was the time when her day would really start

as she sat at the window memories began to awaken
many years had passed since those images were taken
Dad had died and now Mom chose to join him
the house now vacant was somber and grim

life moves on, her children for her now sadden
all wait, knowing that the predestined will happen

Masters Of The World

.

.

“On the shining yards of heaven

See a wider dawn unfurled. . . .

The eternal slaves of beauty

Are the masters of the world.”

.

.

~ Bliss Carman

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

master

over all

leader by name

land, sea, air, fire

lord

.

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

.

dysfunctional fun

locking children out of house

who gets the last laugh

.

Poem:

.

do you only see the ugly
do you only see the beautiful
is your life just awfully fugly
is your life an enjoyable musical

life is an emotional roller coaster
up and down, slow and fast
is your best look printed on a wanted poster
do you fit into a typical typecast

does your life fit your personality
does your personality fit your life
can you claim a dual modality
how well do you handle strife

can’t answer any of the questions above
who really cares
it’s always your life to do with as you love
upstairs or downstairs
