Makes Me Dream

.

“For my part

I know nothing

with any certainty,

but the sight

of the stars

makes me dream.”

.

~  Vincent Van Gogh

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

stargaze

mind unfettered

thoughts of fantasy

hopes and wishes made

daydreams

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

revenge being sought

ugly mind

ego puncturing

.

Poem:

.

can you believe the noise of the universe
man’s interference only making it worse
short wave, long wave, the queens wave
man has just crawled out of his cave

reality is faced with a population explosion
global warming is creating an implosion
crocodile tears for the next generation
hope they can find a cure for stagflation

maybe they will just invent another word
how many flavors can they add to bean curd
the future is a question without an answer
history is the story of the gandy dancer

today is the future and history rolled into one
ignore the questions and go have some fun

The Ancients

.

“It has been said

by the ancients

that poetry is a

picture without form,

and painting is a

poem with form”

.

– HuaI (Song Dynasty)

.

Elfje:

.

form

or function

words or shapes

art for arts sake

ancient

.

Elfje   (Cinquain)

.

gasp

can’t breathe

trying to survive

everything is black and white

nightmare

.

Haiku:

.

nature has her form

survival of the fittest

are we included

.

Poem:

.

flights of fantasy, daydreams
over and over the same unreal themes
the what if I were rich instead of beautiful
dancing, singing, the star of a musical

no morbid thoughts to inspire a poem
wishing the reveries were to be an omen
castles in the air sparked by jealously
life’s decisions handled carelessly

dreams, not goals, wasting life’s precious moment
my lethargy being my own worst opponent
move a muscle, change a thought
maybe today, maybe today,  I’ll hit the jackpot
