An Anchor

.

“Poems can be found,

if they’re looked for,

addressing every realm

of what in our lives

can feel broken….

Every truly good poem

has in it, somewhere,

an anchor dropped down into wholeness.”

.

—Jane Hirshfield

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

reality

the now

without tainted bias

coincidence, happening, occurrence, incident

wholeness

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

pleasant aromas

food cooking

can’t wait for meal time

.

Poem:    (madrigal)

.

would I, could I, should I lie
only God knows the real truth
those bad habits we learned as a youth

a habitual liar makes me want to cry
repeating a fib is very uncouth
would I, could I, should I lie
only God knows the real truth

if my nose grows, will I be the bad guy
to undress the lie will take a real sleuth
as painful as pulling a wisdom tooth
would I, could I, should I lie
only God knows the real truth
those bad habits we learned as a youth

ME and the Boss.

A Poem Begins

001

.

.

“A poem begins as

a lump in the throat,

a sense of wrong,

a homesickness,

a lovesickness.”

.

~ Robert Frost

.

Elfje:

anew

every ending

is a beginning

going who knows where

living

 

Haiku:

waiting  seasons change

God said to enjoy this one

no waiting required

 

Elfje:

cooking

preparing food

enjoying the process

edible delights for all

satisfied

 

Haiku:

birds singing ‘thank you’

gratitude for just being

man always wants more

 

ME and the Boss
