God Is Awake

.

“Have courage for the

great sorrows of life and

patience for the small ones;

and when you have laboriously

accomplished your daily task,

go to sleep in peace.

God is awake.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

finished

finally done

was completely over

t’s crossed, I’s dotted

accomplished

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

the harvest complete

and ready for Thanksgiving

fall foliage on fire

.

Poem:

.

whatever did I do
I thought I was being nice to you
maybe you didn’t hear me right
I’m supposed to be your white knight

was it my tone of voice or the words I used
for whatever reason I am confused
please tell me what am I supposed to do
I will do anything that I must go through

don’t know what I did so I can’t say that I’m sorry
I’m chasing big game emotions like I was on a safari
to play your guessing game I am requesting a hint
maybe it’s something that rhymes with peppermint

could be that I forgot to take out the trash
we needed milk, I forgot to leave you the cash
did I strand the kids at the soccer field
I quit, too many landmines on this battlefield

she confessed there was no reason for her blowup
for her the best part was to kiss and make up

As The Wind Blows

.

“Write as

the wind blows

and command

all words

like an army!”

.

~ Hilaire Belloc

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

go

this way

and that way

as the wind blows

flow

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

they would not, could not

show any true emotions

children of abuse

.

Poem:

.

he awoke from a pleasant dream
lying  softly next to a gurgling stream
life was going good or so it seemed
actually better than he had ever dreamed

there was a time when things were bleak
his soul was lost he thought he was unique
his life was held in the grip of an addiction
humbled to his knees with a life of dereliction

a disease that is physical, mental and spiritual
to a cure which is in the realm of metaphorical
beyond self help it takes a collaboration
shown a pathway by the healed’s affirmation

following their suggestions he became humble
he salvaged a life that was about to crumble
promises made, promises kept
life is no struggle when you learn to accept
