Vast Eternity

“But at my back I always hear
Time’s wingèd chariot hurrying near;
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity.”


~ Andrew Marvel

eat

a meal

can you cook

spud, meat and bread

food

.

Haiku:

.

colorful flowers

attracting ants, bees and me

with sweet aromas

Poem:

.

the horseshoe above the door was facing down
my luck had fallen to the ground
up the ladder with hammer in hand
was this the portal to Alice’s wonderland

it was a tap, tap, tap on the tack
step on a crack you break your mother’s back
righted the horseshoe without hitting my thumb
could I walk, talk and chew bubble gum

superstitions growing out of old wives tales
nevermind is to ignore the minor details
the poem is seeking something metaphorical
the only help that I can give is strictly rhetorical

to sit in rapture, to muse and ponder
how much time does a poet squander
back to the luck which is now on the ground
the old sage said that if I am prepared it can again be found

so to be prepared one needs to read more
one cannot expect life to come through the back door
love we know comes in through the window
it is death who uses the back door for his innuendo

be ready Freddy, keep the front door unlocked
keep your notebook of good ideas well stocked
may your horseshoe always be turned upward
and let today’s dessert be your favorite custard

“Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity”.
This quote is attributed to the Roman philosopher Seneca.

He Feels

.

“I want to touch people

with my art.

I want them to say

‘he feels deeply,

he feels tenderly’.”

~ Vincent van Gogh

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

truce

calm time

peace of mind

lull past the storm

quiet

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

hearts were intertwined

perfect love

God’s holy union

.

Poem:

.

to be the person who can love
a gift which comes from above
it all starts with loving yourself
a contented soul who can lend oneself

Love is forever.
Love is no problem whatsoever
Love knows no limits
Love is devoid of all gimmicks

Love is a whisper heard by you alone
Love is the best feeling man has known
Love is to be whatever, as silly as it seems
Love is the fulfillment of the souls dreams

Love is to fly with the angels’
Love is having no expectations
Love is every second of every day
Love is love when you give it away.

Love is His gift to all alike.
Especially for the lucky guy named Mike
Love is serenity.
Love is eternity.

Love is helping someone love themselves.

This, and some of the above, was/are some of December’s
“Love is …..”
Love is the key to the Uni-verse.
Love is enjoying the right perspective.
Love is a lot of letting go.
Love is like magic in that both take practice.
Love is holding nothing back.
Love is for those that need it;  and don’t we all ???
Love is creating.
