No Fear

.

.

Don’t

be afraid

of poetry.”

.

~ Clifton Fadiman

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

poet

who writ

don’t know it

but it does rhyme

verse

.

Senryu: 5 , 7 , 5 syllables with people and their emotions as a subject.

.

anger starts with fear

we didn’t get what we wanted

you took advantage

.

Poem:

.

gentle waves of warm water cover the feet
the sun providing a glorious bone warming heat
any day at the beach will soothe the soul
nature reinforcing that God is in control

evolution is such a marvelous thing
only the crazy to the past want to cling
revolution is not necessarily evolution
anarchy is never a very good solution

peace, make love not war
use science to give everyone more
think of the consequences, not just the profits
believe that the Creator knows more than the prophets

predicting the future we all must agree
it is as easy as following the greed
why listen to entertainers and TV show host
their agenda is not as friendly as Casper the Ghost

today, be kind, be loving and watch what you say
and when all else fails, take the time to pray

Fill It Up

.

“It’s just endless
what you can learn from
a single work of art.
You can fill up the crevices
of your life,
the cracks of your life,
the places where
the mortar comes out
and falls away-
you can fill it up with
the love of art.’

.

~  Vincent Price

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.
scare
cause fear
shock the nerves
make the heart jump
spook                                    (What Vincent Price was know for.)
.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
spring colors blossom
refreshed after winters sleep
birds and bees arrive

.

Poem:

.

seeing red, totally vivid
ignorant actions that make one  livid
anger is another form of fear
ulterior motives made unclear

emotions that must be explained
to keep the soul from being drained
the lessons to teach patience and tolerance
situations that require our total sufferance

wisdom achieved by learning to listen
uncovering motives that were hidden
Spiritual progress became our ultimate goal
rediscovering the value of our soul

no longer red, what we see is clear
serenity and peace devoid of fear
