Like Beautiful Music

.

“A poet is an unhappy being
whose heart is torn
by secret sufferings,
but whose lips are so
strangely formed that when
the sighs and the cries
escape them, they sound
like beautiful music.”

.

― Soren Kierkegaard

sound

two feet

hale and hearty

planted on the ground

healthy

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

music to my ears

symphony

orchestra in tune

.

Poem:

.

am I hearing things
can it be a wish and a prayer
is it the sound of angels wings
pixies a silent oath do swear

am I seeing things
could it be just a mirage
is it politically attached with strings
gnomes hidden by camouflage

am I feeling things
emotions tied to the heart
wistfully longing for magic rings
gremlins believe in modern art

am I dreaming things
may it be the kissing disease
gifts of beauty from benevolent kings
fairies that can float on a breeze

what determined who I am
I probably need a 12 step program

The Colors Change

.

“Life’s like

a painters palette,

just when you’ve got

everything worked out

the colours change”

.

~ Benny Bellamacina

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

black

darkest colour

absence of light

while over the rainbow

white

.

Haiku:

.

birds migrating south

can winter be far behind

seasonal cycle

.

Poem:

.

lived in the negative
could never see the positive
the brain is on backward
the emotions fractured

one was never enough
morally never grew up
selfish and self-centered
the mouth was uncensored

suicide was always an option
rage on the verge of eruption
an existence lived in purgatory
fodder for a horrible short story

shifted gears, took it out of reverse
told that life is not a permanent curse
followed the suggestions of a few
found a way of living that was new

the road still has the same pot holes
easy to miss with God at the controls
it’s easy to be serious only part time
dance, sing, laugh, love,
enjoy the rhyme . . .
