Little Words

When you are gone,
there is nor bloom nor leaf,
Nor singing sea at night,

nor silver birds;
And I can only stare,

and shape my grief
In little words.


Dorothy Parker


Elfje: Cinquain

babies

cute twins

boy and girl

dressed blue and pink

children

.

Senryu:

.

born to be happy

was loved and knew how to love

with a heart of gold

.

Poem:

.

here’s hoping that your every day is a Sunday
giving your Higher Power a day to rest
having gratitude for each and every day
doing His will makes it the best

accepting life without a worry
always trying to do the next right thing
do it now so later you won’t have to hurry
please don’t cry over the broken shoe string

begin each day with an attitude of gratitude
best to know that you have a choice
better to be seen than being viewed
show your love by using a happy voice

don’t pay Peter by what from Paul you rob
always the choice, happiness is an inside job

Writing Well

.

.

“Writing well

is the best

revenge.”

.

~  Dorothy Parker

.

.

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

.

pick

don’t grab

make it quick

catch what you can

choose

.

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

.

you can pick your love

will your choice pick you to love

whose heart gets broken

.

Poem:

.

you can’t win if you don’t play
can we treat life like a child’s game
are you a color or are you a bouquet
is there really something in a name

the clouds diminished into rainbows
the seasons came and went
clover in all colors covers the meadows
in nature nothing is ever spent

so many questions and so few answers
discovered today, obsolete tomorrow
does love motivate flamenco dancers
can eyes wide open see a peep show

I’m so content to ask the question
please, just don’t ask me for the answer
