Or

“I do not know

which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or

the beauty of innuendos

The blackbird whistling

Or

just after.”

~ Wallace Stevens

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

either

which one

choices that confound

so many to choose from

or

.

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

.

stupid cannot learn

ignorant has yet to learn

do we have a choice ? ? ?

.

Poem:

.

we have a choice
to be mean or kind
signaled by a tone of voice
habits which spring to mind

when angered do we see red
when kind do we hear the angels sing
can we see inside of our head
do we get another life with the golden ring

should the stupid carry a flag
are humans on the decline
does love carry a price tag
when will life have to resign

choices, democracy or socialism
there is no compromise,
since neither leads to altruism
will this be man’s demise

will there be one soul left who will know the outcome
why worry, why save, go ahead and eat the last piece of pie
when all else fails, just choose not to be glum
even during daytime there are stars in the sky

be the optimist, be kind
have faith, a loving Creator made this His ultimate design.

Nameless Graces

.

“Music resembles poetry,

in each are nameless graces

which no methods teach,

and which a master hand

alone can reach.”

.

― Alexander Pope

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

melodic

fingers dance

strings respond accordingly

tuned instrument, dynamic virtuoso

piano

.

Haiku:

.

sunrise muted haze

the master hand of nature

sunset brilliant blaze

.

Poem:

.

dimpled dancer Lilly
acting kind of silly
with talents endowed
excited the saloon crowd

ambition consumed her
practiced becoming a poseur
married to gain status
climbed upon the political apparatus

power became her passion
her persona she did refashion
she changed her name to Hillary
her soul bought by the big artillery

her ego convinced her she had won
she actually believed she was a nun
the electorate saw through her scam
she failed in their final exam

there is more yet to unfold
will the true story ever be told
has her foundation received its last donation
will what she deserves ever come to fruition

maybe she should just become Lilly again
and cease giving everyone a rectal pain
stop being the pot calling the kettle black
time to give Bill his deserved kickback

Gulliver struggled with the lilliputian
American’s their moral prostitution
how will democracy ever survive
surly it will not be by watching The Five

religious or not , say a prayer
hope will find a cure . . . somewhere
