Wisdom of Humanity

.

“…the collective

wisdom of humanity

[is] enshrined

in its poetry.”

.

~ Robyn Donald

.

Elfje:

.

jump

spin around

À la quatrième

do the boogie woogie

dance

.

Haiku:

.

clearing winter’s mess

careful to save the new growth

spring is but a dream

.

Poem:

.

where is the fine line of sanity

or is insane not a place at all

not me, invisibly cloaked in vanity

delusions acerbated by alcohol

 

did I drink too much and became crazy

or was I crazy and I drank too much

could have done different but was too lazy

should have but I really needed a crutch

 

would have but I ignored my mother

make amends, clear the wreckage

learn to rely upon a Higher Power

be prepared to carry the recovery message

 

a simple program for complicated people

how we were restored to sane thinking

Ink On White Space

.

“You can tell

it’s a poem

because it’s swimming

in a little gel pack

of white space.

That shows it’s a poem.”

.

~ Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

reading

or writing

between the lines

ideas that grow horns

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

the thirsty plant sighs

welcomed spring showers arrive

nature replenished

.

Poem:

.

cacophony of the house

too many selfish bodies

hard of hearing spouse

each their own secret follies

.

everyone has their own device

each competing for attention

advertisers vying to entice

subliminal below comprehension

.

time for a vacation

need to seek the silence

the oceans roar salvation

regaining emotional balance

.

God teaching me patience

different strokes for different folks

are their steps to teach us tolerance

delusional reality or just a hoax

.

can meditation stop the noise

who is inconveniencing whom

because they know how it annoys

only made worse because we presume

.

shut the door

turn out the light

time to snore

say goodnight

.
