Elevate The Soul

.

“To elevate

the soul,


poetry


is necessary.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

soul

you are

from the mind

what’s in your heart

life

.

Lune: REVERSED 3-5-3

.

poetry

is necessary

to live

.

Poem:

.

it is nine AM and the spam callers have started
intruding into my life that has been uncharted
empathy, everyone has to make a living
sympathy, it is my part to be forgiving

enjoying chaos, loving the tempest in the tea cup
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
the backward brain cannot make up its mind
to God we are all just one of a kind

time will move on, with or without me
a drifting raft in the middle of a large sea
envious of those who own a motor
debating my impact as a one in a million voter

is there a subliminal meaning to any of this drivel
something to do with my head being mounted on a swivel
rumbling, mumbling, stumbling, through one day at a time
can perverse thinking be a punishable crime

pardon me but I am just having some fun
trying not to get caught while being on the run

A Passion

.

“With me

poetry

has not been

a purpose,

but a passion.

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

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

.

mead

pale ale

drunk by peers

mixed with bock beer

brewed

.

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

.

drugs and alcohol

mind and body impairing

stuffing the feelings

.

Poem:

.

just another emotional test
her mate, his love, was laid to rest
no need to hide how we feel
sobriety has taught us how to deal

share the feelings with a group of friends
the forlorn anguished soul to cleanse
get up, move on, try to help another
every soul is your God given brother

have gratitude for the good times past
accept that nothing in this world will last
work your program, seek peace of mind
to everyone, including yourself, be kind

feel the feelings, go with the flow
live in the light, avoid the shadow
be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
living a life that is happy, joyous and carefree
