Gushes Poetry

“I opened my veins.

Unstoppably life spurts out

with no remedy.

Now I set out

bowls and plates.

Every bowl will be shallow.

Every plate will be small.

And overflowing their rims,

into the black earth

to nourish the rushes,

unstoppably without cure,  gushes poetry …”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

shallow

not deep

a transparent person

motives on the surface

superficial

.

Haiku:

.

on oceans high tides

moon makes its monthly cycle

sailors set their sails

.

Poem:

.

it’s easy to have an awesome day
just be careful of what you say

be nice to the little old lady next door
guidance from a Higher Power implore
wants or needs, be careful what you ask for

believe that souls exist without colors
healthy children respect their mothers
the happiest treat everyone like brothers
sharing unconditional love with others

be patient with those who are innocent
be tolerant of those who are ignorant
forgive the eclectic who think they are different

just be the person God wants you to be
enjoying a life that is happy, joyous and free

.

Comment:

God’s will for me is to: be nice, be loving, be patient, be tolerant,

be forgiving and just be the person He wants me to be.

A Love Of Words

“…fine love poetry

tends to be written

when the object of

one’s affection is

at a safe distance;

also,

it often reflects

a love of words

more than a love of women…”

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

go

no wait

maybe we can

make up our minds

indecision

.

Haiku:

.

colorful rainbow

natures eternal promise

life giving water

.

Poem:

.

modern times demand modern poetry
how is that done with old fashioned words
must we reinvent a modern psychiatry
easier to just smoke some old fashioned herbs

can the poet create a new set of feelings
make his message more obscure
manufacture words with new meanings
stoop to using semantics that are impure

the easiest motive is to be yourself
trust God that he made you unique
be honest, the best poem is oneself
can you live with your own critique

everything happens in God’s time
the poets acceptance is declared in his rhyme
