Evolved

.

“All religion,

my friend,

is simply evolved

out of fraud, fear,

greed, imagination,

and poetry.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

vision

unreal thoughts

vivid mental picture

things that don’t exist

imagination

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

nature’s true colors

camouflage

can you see me now

Poem:

.

is there another world parallel to our own
what some have called the twilight zone

where everything is opposite, black or white
where the darkest dark becomes the bright

no good or evil, just a calm
ethereal music accompanying a psalm

everything positive, no negatives allowed
nine is the number assigned to every cloud

a surreal place that is not a dream
all meals end with peaches and cream

every soul is born with a red heart
all other features are a la carte

feelings that do not include fear and hate
there is no crooked, only straight

could we live in both worlds at the same time
in a place where there would be no crime

a place where speech writers would not take sides
where politicians don’t change with the tides

as long as there are egos it will not happen
but there is no reason that we cannot imagine

Today, think love, peace and prosperity
allow every motive to be benefit charity

Ah, I Remember

.

“Ah, distinctly I remember

it was in the bleak December

And each separate dying ember

wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly I wished the morrow;

— vainly I had sought to borrow

From my books surcease of sorrow

— sorrow for the lost Lenore.”

pleasure

feels good

free from guilt

can make everyone happy

delight

.

Haiku:

.

winter snows cover

Mother Nature takes her nap

cold silence prevails

.

Poem:

.

with a God given aptitude
and a very positive attitude
one cannot but have gratitude
for living a life of love
tolerance we can duplicate
patience which we can educate
forgiveness a spirit to elevate
guidance from above

beginning the day with reflections
strength to share kind affections
courage to follow His directions
being able  to love
doing nothing that is immoral
learning to live with thinking abnormal
accepting that no one is immortal
inspiration from above

no fear of being secluded
resentments finally concluded
in society a joy to be included
glad to share the love
given a pathway to recovery
relief from all of the drudgery
every breath a God given luxury
blessings from above
