An Act Of Faith

“Even the most 
political poem 
is an act 
of faith.”

 ~Martin Espada

Elfje:

trust
in God
He is good
all of the time
faith

Haiku:

rain, rain, go away
the garden has been flooded
the lake has been filled

.

Poem:

are you ever too old to learn
how many brain cells do you have to burn
can you teach an old dog a new trick
is it the dead cells that makes the brain so thick

does new technology make life easy
or is it just more income for the sleazy
fat fingers never worked in any phone
today to buy one you need a personal loan

soon all of the cars will be electric
driven by clones who will be eccentric
old timey mechanics will have nothing to fix
with no transmissions they’ll need to find a new trick

change, change, change, why complain
the future will come at us, just like the rain

No Other Rule

what you like;

there is no

other rule.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

glee

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

beautiful sky

sun and mist

rainbows everywhere

Poem:

.

looking, lost, trying to find fantasyland
this ugly, smelly reality I cannot stand
transport me to a faraway zone
let me hide by using a clone

let’s create a new space and call it Love
built with the blessings received from above
air and noise pollution may not exist
the sky above always rainbow kissed

soft melodies provided by the birds and the bees
herbal aromas wafting about on a fresh breeze
every trail and path lined with a display floral
the horizon represented by a bucolic mural

a sirens scream, a grieving mothers wail
back to earth, dreams wasted to no avail
a bang and a thud, everything used and abused
only the crazy from this world are excused

to cope, one must adjust the altitude
work hard at keeping a good attitude
let reality suck, if it must
let go, relax, in God you must trust
