Self

.

“Loneliness is

the poverty of self;

solitude is

the richness of self.”

.

~ May Sarton
.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.

.

change
move on
do it twice
try to or else
switch

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.
springs chilly drizzle
sky covered by low gray clouds 
first robin appears
.

Poem:
.

quarter of a century in recovery
every day a new day of discovery
learning to accept all of life’s changes
enjoying the chance to be outrageous

I pray every day to walk the walk
sad are those who just talk the talk
it is easy to accept when God is in control
body, mind and soul He makes us whole

sobriety promises us many things
a chance to unravel the heart strings
a new freedom from past regrets
friends who we can count as assets

an attitude that includes no fears
a desire to be of help to our peers
happy, happy, happy for others
a choice to be part of a band of brothers

knowledge of feelings that keeps expanding
finding a God of our understanding
a kindness we are glad to  repay
living this life no other way

For ye are living poems,

And all the rest are dead.”

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

.

rainbows bring their hope

life and spirits lifted up

smiles with ohs and ahs

.

Poem:

.

the weather has a profound force
one’s moods it does endorse

clouds and rain a feeling of doom
grey and black describing gloom

a calm starry night renders awe
magnified when viewed upon the utah

bright sunlight warms the soul
a creators vision to extol

rainbows and butterflies
smiles, to the eyes a colorful prize

equatorial deserts and muggy rain forest
nice to visit if you are a tourist

beware of the cold , the blizzard
accused of creating the lounge lizard

for those whose winter sports are euphoric
they need to learn the word phantasmagoric*

how to beat the weather blues
time to take a Caribbean/Mediterranean cruise

defeat the weather, put on a happy mood
for being able to put your mind anywhere, have gratitude

.

*phantasmagoric:  having a fantastic or deceptive appearance,
as something in a dream or created by the imagination.
having the appearance of an optical illusion, especially one
produced by a magic lantern. The Greek word phantasma,
meaning “image,” is the ancestor of phantasmagoric, a word
you can use to describe anything so weird it doesn’t seem real.
