What’s Important

.

“Poetry is not

the most important

thing in life…

I’d much rather lie

in a hot bath

reading Agatha Christie

and sucking sweets.

.

~ Dylan Thomas

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sweet

dessert first

vanilla or chocolate

cake, pie, ice cream

delicious

.

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

.

voyeur hides his glance

invading your privacy

grabbing a sick thrill

.

Poem:

.

thunderstorms welcome the summer solstice
birds, bees and trees have a thankful cordis
the farmer amused to hear his corn growing
the stream in the meadow close to overflowing

while in the city there are riots of anarchy
youthful exuberance on the verge of insanity
looting and pillaging just because they can
motives falsely stated by the leftist newsman

no mind, no matter, just worlds apart
just hatred and fear, no loving heart
will the vote bring the country together
or will we be in for some rough weather

will the left take some rights away
can one be punished for what they don’t say
can the conservatives win a peace
will there always be a need for police

why worry, just try your best to be content
write a poem if you really need to vent
we will never know all of the conspiracy theories
just get it done so we can have a World Series

Obscurer

.

“This poem has been called obscure.

I refuse to believe that it is obscurer

than pity, violence, or suffering.

But being a poem,

not a lifetime,

it is more compressed.”

.

― Dylan Thomas

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

winner

on top

last man standing

best in the field

champion

.

Haiku:

.

delicate crystals

decorate winter windows

natures cool designs

.

Poem:

.

unconscious, mumbling, stumbling, numb
contentment achieved via sucking the thumb
most alcoholics never grow up
life is mostly a tempest in a teacup

past one’s prime chasing teenage emotions
a wanna be tiger who could never be ferocious
coping with a brain that is on backwards
lacking any social or moral standards

selfish, self centered, arrogant to the core
all he ever wanted was more, more and more
thank your lucky stars that God invented the miracle
if it wasn’t so funny it would be confused as satirical

there are souls who found a way to recover
about self and a disease that they needed to discover
programs and religions, some successful, some failures
it is all about being willing to change behaviors

don’t rely solely on another’s opinions
don’t just become another one of their minions
search your heart for who you are or want to be
unlock yourself, only you hold the master key

learn to laugh in the face of unreasonable fears
a real belly laugh that will bring you to tears
find a teacher, a preacher, a guru or group
someone with directions to escape that foggy pea soup

learn that life is not a destination
life is a journey from station to station
change what you must to stay out of jail
prayers that you will find a happy ending to your tale
