That Explodes In Poetry

 

“It is always what is

under pressure in us,

especially under

pressure of concealment-

-that explodes in poetry.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

hidden

out of sight

only God knows

in between the lines

concealment

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

lies purposely told

protecting someone’s feelings

hiding liars guilt

no beneficial reason

the only good is the truth

.

Poem:

.

the only good is the truth
stories told to amuse
stories told to bemuse
I found the fountain of youth

the only good is chocolate
flavors from soup to nuts
promises, no if ands or buts
temptations from a secret closet

the only good is winning
it does help if you are lucky
anything to avoid the yucky
honesty helps you prevent sinning

the only bad is dying
be a winner, tell the truth, eat chocolate
and enjoy this life

I Shot An Arrow

 

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.”

.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

fragrant

smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses

aromatic

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed

Poem:

.
trying to find something positive to write about
living in a world full of anger and doubt
unreasonable fears motivate the crazy
for many it is a case of just being lazy

smile, assume a posture of gratitude
shoulders back, chin up, display a good mood
being thankful is the beginning of every good day
what can you really do about it anyway

know that there is a positive side to every lesson
accept, only as long as you live is it your possession
set your goal on making this world a better place
share the favor of a beneficent God’s grace

could you be something positive to write about
you can be if you just do your best, day in and day out
