Stupider

.

“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

.

~C. S. Lewis

.

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

.

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

flaw

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

.

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

Begins And Ends

.

“Since when,” he asked,

“Are the first line and

last line of any poem

Where the poem begins

and ends?”

.

― Seamus Heaney

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

starts

when, where

at the beginning

does it ever end

again

.

Haiku:

.

rain, rain, too much rain

nature doesn’t know balance

next season is drought

.

.

Poem:

.

If I could be a poem
What would I want to say???
I am me, I wish to be
I am life, I am death
I am the words that pray.

The poem can do anything
the poem is the flight of fancy
Blank verse, free verse
I am what I fantasize
I am the words that show the way.

The poem sings, the poem dances,
the poem gives one many chances,
to be me, to hope to be
I am living, I will be dying
I am the words that stay.
