A Meteor

.

“A poem

is a

meteor.”

.

~ Wallace Stevens

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

vaporize

or explode

into earth’s atmosphere

God’s nightly fireworks display

meteor

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

happiness expressed

joyful heart

silent gratitude

.

Poem:

.

there is this place I call never-the-less
to all of my friends I give free access
the place is filled with excuses galore
who could wish for anything more

the place is a series of rooms, nooks and crannies
there is an cool pond to keep fire from the fannies
there is a looking glass that can see future trouble
it has yet to learn how to pick the daily double

make yourself fit using the many trick mirrors
there are free warm hugs when you get the shivers
the ceiling is made from the trees of knowledge and life
a picture of Heavens peace when man gives up strife

come visit, we’ll have lunch and go exploring
we’ll make a plan for man his faith restoring
regardless, at any rate, we can all be the critic
all the same, in any event, I’ll be there in spirit

never-the-less, we can all do it anyhow, God willing
never-the-less, we’ll never do it anyway, fates fulfilling

Real Dreams

.

“Faith is the poetry

of our dreams;

action is the builder

of our reality.”

.

~  Steve Maraboli

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

truth

fully evident

cannot be denied

forever etched in stone

reality

.

Haiku:

.

icy chill, snowflakes

earth being held by winter’s grip

nature hibernates

.

Poem:

.

sunlight on the wings of a butterfly
summer sounds of bees and birds
nature’s magnificence one cannot deny
all mighty creation to glorify
comparisons at a loss for words

human vision pales inadequate
images that the artist attempt to capture
each and every day a cause to celebrate
God laughs as we try to prognosticate
time to stop thinking, enjoy the rapture

universe reduced to mathematical perfection
wavelengths that color the rainbow
mirror, mirror, whose reflection
emotions the only imperfection
an occasional mind like Leonardo or Thoreau

whose world is this anyway
can there ever be an honest legislature
is there a replacement for religion
does one need faith to file a petition
will man ever harmonize with nature

will man eventually destroy his domain
what is the true meaning of armageddon
were all humans born with the mark of Cain
can we be content with the mundane
shall we let peace cry out to heaven
