My Pleasure

.

.

“If it ain’t

a pleasure,

it ain’t

a poem.

.

.

― William Carlos Williams

.

.

Elfje:

.

read

and write

compose the idea

make the words sing

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

spring blooms prolific

nature provides the pleasure

melted snow feeds brook

.

Poem:

.

twinkle, twinkle little star

nursery rhymes written from afar

how I wonder what you are

whose hand was caught in the cookie jar

.

star light star bright

does heaven only come out at night

can all of my wishes come true tonight

simple pleasures our souls delight

.

hickory dickory dock

everyone ran from the mouse in the clock

so glad the rodents don’t come in a flock

we’d cut off their tails with a tomahawk

.

Old King Cole was a merry old soul

got lost while out taking an evening stroll

wonder if he knew about the black hole

time out, snack time, chinese spring roll

.

And now poor Simple Simon bids you all “Adieu”

he’d come to get you but there is a hole in his canoe

we’ll end this little ditty with a happy thank you

and looking forward to seeing you’ll at (in) the zoo

In Between

.

“I love you

as certain dark things

are to be loved,

in secret,

between the shadow

and the soul.”

.

― Pablo Neruda

.

I was going to write only once a week, Monday, on this blog

but here it is Friday, and the bug has bitten me, in between

the shadow and my soul, and the voice is yelling to be free,

hence a ditty or two.

.

Elfje:

Soul

Ethereal being

Voice inside me

My connection to God

Eternal

.

Haiku:

Define moral sense

Does the soul leave a shadow

Is it the conscience

.

Haiku:     (in the more traditional sense … seasonal)

winters long shadows

soul longs for eternity

life’s always too short

.

a poem … of sorts … :

.

don’t think so hard

go with the flow

don’t reveal your cards

enjoy God’s show

.

life can be difficult if you make it

trying to keep body, mind and soul in sync

life can be easy if you take it

all you need is the color pink

.

a silly day, a belly laugh

time to relax and regale

take a snapshot, save the photograph

teach someone to love using braille

.

delight in every moment of today

call a friend, make a friend, be a friend

the Great Creator made this world a buffet

an honest effort is all you need to spend.

.

ME and the Boss

.

to feel better, laugh with others, not at others.
