But Only Tired

.

“I was not sorrowful,

but only tired

Of everything that

ever I desired.”

fragrant

smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses

aromatic

seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed

.

Poem:

.

can you hear it, the song of the universe
music that stirs every atom of the heart
chords and melodies your being to immerse
every emotion intent on feeling its part

can you see it, heaven aglow with brilliant stars
their dancing choreographed with every note
glittering light reflected by brilliant feldspar’s
words softly sung through a velvet throat

can you feel it, a touch of heavens euphony
sounds that touch the ends of each nerve
every tone becomes a celebrated jubilee
sung by pure voices that angels serve

can you smell it, fragrances carried by varied sounds
from idyllic pastures to the cannons roar
music knows its place, from forefront to backgrounds
every nuance designed to make the spirits soar

can you taste it, songs that stir the imagination
from the ice cream truck to the commercial jingle
a symphony written as a part of the creation
when you are in tune it will make your spine tingle

let the music of the universe invade your  being
allow the children’s laughter to be your first sign
permit your body, mind and soul to be set freeing
enable yourself and the universe to align

Rise Up And Soar

.

“I do not understand

the whole thrilling verse,

but I love the way poetry

turns ordinary words

into winged things

that rise up and soar!”

.

– Margarita Engle

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

dare

to fly

to be you

rise up and soar

individual

.

Haiku:

.

birds rise up and soar

escaping the predator

survival defense

.

Poem:
.

who doesn’t like the challenge
the imbecile, the retarded
the emotional with too much baggage
the coward with feelings guarded

those from the gene pool discarded  . . .
dare to be a man among men
strong enough to take out the garbage
willing to be wrong every now and then

be willing to define your role
know that it is OK to share a feeling
understand that God gave you a soul
emotions are not for concealing

who gains from acting macho
double dealing with someones heart
a ghost who is sordid and hollow
an ego that is far from smart

be the man who makes your mother proud
a loving person who can care and share
stand head and shoulders above the crowd
a man of faith, a wish and a prayer

have a goal to make this world a better place
be willing to accept all of God’s grace.
