Evolved

.

“All religion,

my friend,

is simply evolved

out of fraud, fear,

greed, imagination,

and poetry.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

vision

unreal thoughts

vivid mental picture

things that don’t exist

imagination

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

nature’s true colors

camouflage

can you see me now

.

Poem:

.

is there another world parallel to our own
what some have called the twilight zone

where everything is opposite, black or white
where the darkest dark becomes the bright

no good or evil, just a calm
ethereal music accompanying a psalm

everything positive, no negatives allowed
nine is the number assigned to every cloud

a surreal place that is not a dream
all meals end with peaches and cream

every soul is born with a red heart
all other features are a la carte

feelings that do not include fear and hate
there is no crooked, only straight

could we live in both worlds at the same time
in a place where there would be no crime

a place where speech writers would not take sides
where politicians don’t change with the tides

as long as there are egos it will not happen
but there is no reason that we cannot imagine

Today, think love, peace and prosperity
allow every motive to be benefit charity

What’s Important

.

“Poetry is not

the most important

thing in life…

I’d much rather lie

in a hot bath

reading Agatha Christie

and sucking sweets.

.

~ Dylan Thomas

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sweet

dessert first

vanilla or chocolate

cake, pie, ice cream

delicious

.

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

.

voyeur hides his glance

invading your privacy

grabbing a sick thrill

.

Poem:

.

thunderstorms welcome the summer solstice
birds, bees and trees have a thankful cordis
the farmer amused to hear his corn growing
the stream in the meadow close to overflowing

while in the city there are riots of anarchy
youthful exuberance on the verge of insanity
looting and pillaging just because they can
motives falsely stated by the leftist newsman

no mind, no matter, just worlds apart
just hatred and fear, no loving heart
will the vote bring the country together
or will we be in for some rough weather

will the left take some rights away
can one be punished for what they don’t say
can the conservatives win a peace
will there always be a need for police

why worry, just try your best to be content
write a poem if you really need to vent
we will never know all of the conspiracy theories
just get it done so we can have a World Series
