Yearning In Desire


“And this gray spirit

yearning in desire

To follow knowledge

like a sinking star,

Beyond the utmost bound

of human thought.


~ Alfred Lord Tennyson


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



your interpretation

what should be

not what could be



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


emotional tic

tears for every occasion

a heartfelt response

feelings that reflect instincts

sensations keeping life real




amazed to see dancing elephants
not your usual vision of elegance

minds that create wonderful fantasy
learning your own meaning of insanity
excessive pride leads to vanity

is there really such a thing as normal
the happiest are those who live informal
the young do not have an exclusive on vernal

forget resentments, let go and let God
there isn’t a soul that is not flawed
to those who are due, stand and applaud

the winners always think positive
leaders communicate in the demonstrative
you can never be too old to be cognitive

for only the best, profound respect is reverent
gloriously unique, everyone is different
know that this world is absolutely magnificent

awe struck by the breaching of whales
a joy to be entertained by fantastic tales



ME and the Boss
