Wake Up

.

“The man who lies asleep

will never waken fame,

and his desire and all his life

drift past him like a dream,

and the traces of his memory

fade from time

like smoke in air,

or ripples on a stream.”

.

~ Dante Alighieri

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)
.
dream
to want
plan to have
hope for the best
wish
.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
frilly emotion
can’t wait to be an adult
teenage puppy love
.

Poem:
.

butterflies in the stomach
puppy love takes its first bite
to prove it we’ll kiss in public
the touch that brings delight

holding hands wherever we go
walking is like skipping on air
both of us are proof in the photo
what’s outside our world we don’t care

friendship rings we proudly displayed
hickies on the neck we tried to hide
at home the parents silently prayed
she’s just too young to be a bride

soul mates from the very start
decades spent together
love conveyed heart to heart
surviving all kinds of weather

a friendship that never grew old
youths to old codgers, never a worry
a true love that never went cold
lucky are those who made this journey

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
