The Medium

.

“The medium

is

the message.”

.

Marshall McLuhan (1964)

.

Elfje: Cinquain

.

tall

real high

over the top

a long way up

big

.

Tanka:

.

what were his motives

very selfish, self centered

I, me, never we


it was always about him

without thinking of others

.

Poem:

.

there is this crazy lady from Daytona Beach
reality was never within her reach
relationships always involved a hostage
her definition of love was the word bondage

she is always right, never wrong
the choice in music is invariably her song
every emotion involves a twist or a turn
someone always ends up with the heartburn

accusing everyone of having her own bad habits
is very adept at preforming mental acrobatics
behind the smoke and mirrors she is a saboteur
the family knows but they chose to ignore her

she remains needy, selfish and self centered 
ego driven and emotionally demented
those who know keep her in their prayers
nothing will happen as long as she is unawares

God will intervene, we pray she listens
she knows the name of some very good physicians
for those she harmed, time will heal
do not let your memory of her warp the way you feel

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
