Elevate The Soul

.

“To elevate

the soul,


poetry


is necessary.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje: (Cinquain)

soul

you are

from the mind

what’s in your heart

life

Lune: REVERSED 3-5-3

poetry

is necessary

to live

.

Poem:

.

it is nine AM and the spam callers have started
intruding into my life that has been uncharted
empathy, everyone has to make a living
sympathy, it is my part to be forgiving

enjoying chaos, loving the tempest in the tea cup
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
the backward brain cannot make up its mind
to God we are all just one of a kind

time will move on, with or without me
a drifting raft in the middle of a large sea
envious of those who own a motor
debating my impact as a one in a million voter

is there a subliminal meaning to any of this drivel
something to do with my head being mounted on a swivel
rumbling, mumbling, stumbling, through one day at a time
can perverse thinking be a punishable crime

pardon me but I am just having some fun
trying not to get caught while being on the run

The Most Powerful Drug

 

I am, by calling,

a dealer in words;

and words are,

of course,

the most powerful drug

used by mankind.”

.

Rudyard Kipling

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

drug

chemical influence

brain neurons interrupted

abnormal escape from reality

dope

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

reading the fake news

politics

opinions galore

Poem:

.

April showers brings May pollen
the early worm evades the robin
nature both gives and takes away
man gifted by a beautiful bouquet

can we ruin it all with plastic pollution
are there consequences for fooling evolution
when man has expired there will be no more time
there will be no winners to punish the crime

hopefully we’ll find where the soul resides
nature will overcome those pesticides
the philosophers will discover what it is
everyone will know all of the answers to all of the quizzes

chortle, love, do the next right thing
pray, prepare to welcome another spring
