What’s Important

.

“Poetry is not

the most important

thing in life…

I’d much rather lie

in a hot bath

reading Agatha Christie

and sucking sweets.

.

~ Dylan Thomas

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sweet

dessert first

vanilla or chocolate

cake, pie, ice cream

delicious

.

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

.

voyeur hides his glance

invading your privacy

grabbing a sick thrill

.

Poem:

.

thunderstorms welcome the summer solstice
birds, bees and trees have a thankful cordis
the farmer amused to hear his corn growing
the stream in the meadow close to overflowing

while in the city there are riots of anarchy
youthful exuberance on the verge of insanity
looting and pillaging just because they can
motives falsely stated by the leftist newsman

no mind, no matter, just worlds apart
just hatred and fear, no loving heart
will the vote bring the country together
or will we be in for some rough weather

will the left take some rights away
can one be punished for what they don’t say
can the conservatives win a peace
will there always be a need for police

why worry, just try your best to be content
write a poem if you really need to vent
we will never know all of the conspiracy theories
just get it done so we can have a World Series

From A Vernal Wood

.

.

“One impulse from a vernal wood

May teach you more of man,

Of moral evil and of good,

Than all the sages can.”

.

~ William Wordsworth

some creations mysteries solved

experts

beautiful artist

sees Creators handiwork

a minds reflection

.

Poem:

.

alas, that man no longer learns
what Nature so gladly teaches
how survival of the fittest turns
a slow evolution of our features

nature has been displaced by city jungles
man’s attitude influenced by race and religion
majority of concerns regard daily struggles
billions ignorant about nuclear fission

pollution encroaches upon Walden’s pond
oceans clogged by plastic litter
stupid believes the cure is a government bond
or maybe the magic of a presidential twitter

Chicago’s sounds come from gunshots
birds gave up singing long ago
San Francisco’s sanctuary is tied in knots
innocent victims and narcotics dough

Paris riots over global warming
religious radicals causing much woe
Los Angeles is draining the Colorado
extremist need to go with the flow

today is your chance to cure the burn
breath deep, breath slow
find a bad habit to overturn
learn from nature which way to go
