Savor The Moments

.

‘Savor the moments

that are warm

and special

and giggly.”

.

~ Sammy Davis, Jr.

.

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

.

jest

not real

just for fun

it makes me laugh

joke

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

just as God made it

natural

adapting to now

.

Poem:

.

please read
it may be just what you need
a kick in the pants to get you started
a journey not for the fainthearted

let us take a trip to nowhere
where productive thinking is very rare
destination: the seat of government
a place full of fanciful wonderment

how did these clowns ever get elected
making laws common sense rejected
a politician’s authority for personal gain
corruption, graft, the richest gravy train

how can they afford those huge mansions
a slap on the wrist that they call sanctions
Nepotism, Cronyism, who’s not qualified ?
their excuse is that their hands are tied

bad lawyers running to assuage their egotism
their dictionaries do not include the word altruism
always at conflict with their primary purpose
acting like wolves going for an opponents carcass

billionaires bought the last election
has democracy lost its moral direction
now is the time to do your part
vote with your head, not with your heart

The Absurd Poem

,

“Where joy

in an old pencil

is not absurd.”

.

― May Sarton

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

history

being made

some just yesterday

mostly many years ago

repeats

.

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

.

wannabe the king

egotism on steroids

self defeating dud

.

Poem:

.

ideas, ideas, what to write
the poem is not feeling very contrite
reject, too sad, reject, too silly
can we compose using a calla lily

inspiration is everywhere
mostly a wish, sometimes a prayer
does God know what I am thinking
old age, the brain is really shrinking

frustrated by the too many red lights
send me a bucket of bright green sights
most people live in the yellow zone
going through life as a mindless drone

time to throw caution into the wind
reposition the crooked frame of mind
forget the dreary, grab on to the whimsy
believe, Santa does come down the chimney

Milne, Potter, Carroll, Baum and Suess
adults on a children’s level thesaurus
stories that animate many a dream
original builders of a new theme

we know what Poe did for the mystery
in writers parlance the rest is history
is it a mind that big or a mind that wide
that one can imagine beyond the true and tried

is it words or rhyme that must transcend
that allows the poem to have a worthy end
is it the journey, the thinking, that satisfies
or is it maybe a try at the Pulitzer prize

smoke coming from the ears, a true visual sign
the thoughts have crossed the proverbial goal line
time to wrap it up with a big red bow
time to return to reality, the here and now

ciao.
