Feel

.

“It is not

half so

important

to know

as to feel.”

.

~ Rachel Carson

sense

goose bumps

move the soul

true heart felt love

feel

.

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

.

missing the loved one

absence makes heart grow fonder

taking forever

.

Poem:

.

God grant me some patience and tolerance
to find a place in a social distancing audience
a curmudgeon in recovery can still think of others
can they be brothers from different mothers

as one gets older do you forget your manners
do parents no longer teach social standards
sorry doesn’t cut it, please excuse me
you will not be invited for tea at three

cutting in line, like there won’t be enough
confronted they become filled with huff and puff
a whole generation living off the dole
enough votes to give bad politicians control

Woodstock was a peaceful demonstration
today’s aberration it is nothing but aggravation
looting and arson are not a protest
liberals objecting to the rioters arrest

pray that sanity will someday be restored
that civil unrest will not be ignored
that life again may start moving forward
a peace and calm will be the reward

Poem:

.

the old man’s mind still enjoys it’s trips to fantasy land
remembering the occasional one night stand
sometimes recalling the details, the time and place
a few were nothing but a blur, others had a face

the morning after always a calliope of feelings
praying that the night included no weddings
very little guilt from the drive for self satisfaction
no remorse for the victim, didn’t believe in compassion

a name that was a lie needs no amends
what’s a little hot and heavy among friends
he wished for the goose what was good for the gander
the rules were set, he was just another philander

when he remembers, today he looks
touching is definitely not in the books
still rude, never a sympathetic heart surgeon
always trying to become a better curmudgeon

tired, spent, he’s given up trying
he believes there is a benefit to dying
faith, there is a purpose God put us upon this earth
believe, good memories are all that it’s worth
