A Gift

.

A book

is a gift

you can open

again and again.”

.

~ Garrison Keillor

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

swing

jazz type

to and fro

go the other way

sway

.

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

.

we all need someone

love, the grandest emotion

a reason to live

.

Poem:

.

along came the Coronavirus
delivered to man by the God Osiris
mostly it picked on the elderly
those who were compromised medically

Communist China was the original source
their deception added to the eventual course
the WHO added more misery to the woes
but, the free world were formidable foes

mitigation was begun by social isolation
economies paralized by the duration
in some arenas it was politics as usual
the far left proved themselves very delusional

eventually with scientific and human resolve
the Covid-19 pandemic was finally solved

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
