Emotion Is

“Emotion

is the

poetry

of life.”

.
Marty Rubin

Elfje:

.

feel
no touch
from the gut
what you may think
sense

.

Senryu: 5,7,5 syllables people and their emotions as a subject

.

gentle emotion
no laugh, no cry, just happy
the best in between

.

Poem:

.

the struggle was in his mind
was he better off dead or alive
to being hopeless he was resigned
it took too much just to survive

drugs and alcohol were a quick fix
too soon the terrible addiction took over
the mind started to play more insidious tricks
peace was an eternal sleep under a bed of clover

he woke up frozen to the ground
could not remember when the binge began
he so wanted his life to turn around
directions were needed to give him a plan

he found hope among a group of drunks
they gave him a book that had a Doctors opinion
it had twelve steps to get him out of the dumps
to a Higher Power he became a loyal minion

four scores plus he continues to thrive
the Group Of Drunks is now his sponsor
a soul at peace, just glad to be alive
to his personal God he gives all honor

Laughter

.

“Laughter is

the closest

thing to

the grace

of God.”

.

~ Karl Barth

.

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

smile
big grin
not a frown
full of good cheer
laugh

.
Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.
do the selfish thing
no need to think of others
I want what I want

the addict out of control
lives destroyed in the process
.

Poem:

.

of all of the gifts received in sobriety, laughter has to be the greatest
for too many it is the gift that is received the latest
most addictive substances act as depressants
those who start young never outgrow adolescents

the alcoholic/addict thinks a laugh is weird
hooked to an emotion that is feared
always laughing at someone or something
laughing at them because they are nothing

eventually they understand to laugh with, not at
at ourselves, not at others, always just a tit for a tat
the best humor is not at another’s expense
the laugh grows along with the common sense

a laugh a day will keep the doctor/shrink away
and for most they pray for another sober day
