The Rhythmical Creation Of Beauty

.

“I would define,

in brief,

the poetry of words

as the rhythmical

creation of Beauty.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

soothing

gentle sounds

pleasing gossamer dreams

still water runs deep

brooks

 

.

Haiku:

.

thunder lightening rain

God’s wonderful theater

life giving waters

.

Poem:

.

I can see the setting with my minds eye

with my words I want you to see it too

use your imagination, let it fly

let us all take a trip to the emotional zoo

.

let us start with the family, we know them best

Dad doesn’t count, his emotions are hidden

question his feelings he would flunk this test

real men don’t cry; a tear, heaven forbidden

.

Mom’s usually have all of the passion

child bearing, child rearing stretches the sensibilities

following Dr. Spock or whoever is the current fashion

in the end, Mothers intuition is the God given ability

.

Siblings, a curse or a blessing

some are like Mom, some are like Dad

memories fueled by feelings worth expressing

the best times, the worst times we have ever had

.

neighbors and friends can fill the zoo

from cuddly koalas to to the always hungry lion

over the cuckoo’s nest some of them flew

personally they all made their own bed to lie in

.

paint the picture, yourself, family and others

what colors do their personalities represent

the vibrant peacock, the camouflaged laughing hyenas

use your mental imagery how many matches can you invent

.

see the picture

who is the sicker

can’t go to the zoo

without looking for you

No Interpreter Needed

.

“Great poetry

needs no interpreter

other than a

responsive heart.”

.

― Helen Keller

.

Elfje:

.

feelings

emotionally charged

accepting what comes

life on life’s terms   (Life on God’s terms)

human

.

Haiku:

.

the shores sandy dunes

pushed by the oceans currents

summer vacation

.

Poem:

.

some say the best poems extol the virtues of love

while soaring above on the wings of a dove

stories about feelings, fears and life

worries about things that cause angst and strife

.

every day the feelings are different

those without mothers become the ignorant

books with stories teach us how to feel

family and friends explain that which is real

.

some seek to alter the mood so they need not think

can’t figure out why when they lie to the shrink

sad are those whose brains are on a perpetual swing

ups and downs caused by the brains short circuit wiring

.

lucky are those whose friends have feelings that are mutual

the paranoid, the loner are not that unusual

will man ever be able to fix the brain

can there be a time when no one will be insane

.

until medicine finds the cure

self education will be the basic tool

learning to live the Golden Rule

hope’s of growing up and becoming mature
