A Dupe To Illusions

.

“Perhaps it is better

to wake up after all,

even to suffer,

rather than to remain

a dupe to illusions

all one’s life.”

.

~ Kate Chopin

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

disillusion

total confusion

another optical illusion

never a forgone conclusion

frustration

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

selfish, self-centered

no respect

me, me, only me

.

Poem:

.

politics as usual

the ego is seeking the publicity
the ultimate goal is duplicity
those who support them are guilty of complicity
gerrymandering has nothing to do with simplicity

vilifying the opponent, close to slander
heaven forbid that they would use candor
the working man an innocent bystander
they will saying anything just to pander

race, color, creed just a percentage
more human fodder made into a silage
writers avoiding the subliminal message
vote for me, avoid the looming presage

liberal, conservative, middle of the road
to which vote is our allegiance owed
is there still such a thing as a moral code
don’t let this be just another repeat episode

a government by the people and for the people
may it ring from each and every church steeple
just once, may we have the truth come out
believe, have faith, your vote does have clout

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
