Invisible

.

“The poet is

the priest

of the

invisible.”

.

— Wallace Stevens

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

twilight

in camouflage

concealed in color

birds chirp evening psalms

invisible

.

Haiku:

.

blizzard of brightness

an invisible world

a winter white out

.

Poem:

.

love lost, love gained

the backbone of music and verse

life’s tribulations to be explained

.

emotions usually hid in a closet

songs vicariously used to emote

seeking a ride on a fantasy rocket

.

love yourself, love others

some preach unconditional love

the best love comes from Mothers

.

when one is feeling down and small

it is best to remember

God loves us all

Just the Ash

.

Poetry is just

the evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is

just the ash.”

.

~ Leonard Cohen

Elfje (Cinquain)

.

wet

the grass

does not burn

pray for more rain

drought

.

HAIKU:

.

nature accepts change

seasons become important

call them what you may

.

Poem

.

the crow  of premonition

perched on the scarecrows head

sparking the farmers intuition

foreboding a feeling of dread

.

is it a truth or an old wives tale

does the Great Creator have a sense of humor

what is it with the salt on his tail

can the bird really tell the future

.

a creature of opportunity

he loves to go for the bling

and lives with a reputation of ambiguity

with a signature caw he does not sing

.

Jim Crow reigned in the South

God, please make us all color blind

for those who didn’t read it was word of mouth

apparently bird brained is the state of mankind

.

the humble rarely have to eat crow

the braggart is the crowing chicken

he knows best who can go very slow

why worry . . .  the future is hidden
