Strike At The Soul


“To delight

the ear and the eye

is a mere sensual


—true poetry

strikes at the soul.”


― Samuel Egerton Brydges



Elfje: (Cinquain)



in three

body, mind , soul

doing the Creators will





beautiful evening

inspiration from above

nature adores praise




Quiet the noisy mind
Have it in your heart to be kind

Seek serenity for your soul
Make peace of mind your only goal

Learn to love all and include yourself
Find tranquility in and of itself

For others be patient and tolerant
Of wants or needs be cognizant

For those who have no clue be forgiving
The Creator has a purpose for all of the living

And when your day is done let everyone agree
I was the person my God wanted me to be


Love, hugs and prayers. ME and the Boss







Painting is poetry

that is seen

rather than felt,

and poetry is painting

that is felt

rather than seen.”

~ Leonardo da Vinci


As the man waited for his muse to arise
he sat at his desk and contemplated his feelings.
I am happy to be breathing he surmised
what other emotions can be so revealing

So let us shoot for the stars, let us be exuberant
could have, should have and would have are too depressing
let the spirits arise, let us opine to be more jubilant
find the soul that smiles a lot and to them be acquiescing

The muse was so enraptured with the glee
the words poured forth like a babbling brook
no chains, no fetters just wind blown and free
everything rhymed and chimed, even the gobbledygook

An attitude of gratitude arose in the writer
He knew that mirth is the gleam in God’s eye
his soul was unburden and it became lighter|
knowing that happiness and love can fill the sky

The words will end, but the feeling must last
so he used his rhyme to paint the merry festival
surprised to learn that happy can be both present and past,
feelings and thoughts that can celebrate the fanciful

The muse is within all of us, be happy my friend
the glad feelings and thoughts must never end …
