It Found Me

.

“I wasn’t meant

for reality,

but life came

and found me.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

frost

cold rime

creek to lake

all things that froze

ice

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

winter cold persist

glad to see daylight growing

spring stands in the wings

.

Poem:

.

magnolia blossoms aroma wafted above
young hearts below dreaming of love
springs chilly rain waters tomorrows hope
urges so strong that make some want to elope

generation after generation, God’s design
who can argue that it is not divine
fill your dreams with all you can imagine
be ready to accept whatever may happen

the quiet mind knows serene
renew ancient faith as did St. Augustine
with this life there is not a guarantee
it will be or it was meant not to be             (said Shakespeare)

stay young and always dream of love
for love will bring blessings from above

Cheer

014

.

“A poet is

a nightingale,

who sits in darkness

and sings to cheer

its own solitude

with sweet sounds.”

.

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

.

Troiku

.

the rainy season
thunder and lightening daily
swamps are being born

the rainy season
daylight goes from long to short
warm oceans give birth

raining cats and dogs
thunder and lightening daily
life’s vital water

Mother Natures gifts
the Great Creators bounty
swamps are being born

.

.

ME and the Boss

.

.

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the second stanza shares the first line of the original haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the third stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section
