Nothing Is Always Something

.

“Don’t you just love

poetry that gives you

a crinkly feeling

up and down your back?”

.

~ L.M. Montgomery,

nothing
to see
with eyes closed
use the other senses
something

.

Haiku:

.

welcomed steady rain
water to refresh the earth
giving life to all

.

Poem:

.

nothing is always something
seeing is never believing
fingers and heart are touching
hearing can be very deceiving

words can be extremely confusing
know it alls will say anything
accidental puns are amusing
blessings reside in the fairy ring

love can mean so many things
a kindness is never wasted
bells toll when the angel gets its wings
when will peace be created

something does not have to be an action
nothing can give rise to moral satisfaction

A Cold Bed

“…few young poets

[are] testing their poems

against the ear.

They’re writing

for the page,

and the page,

let me tell you,

is a cold bed.”

trees

sugar maple

pine, spruce, cedar

homes for animals, people

forest

.

Haiku:

.

purring cat cuddles

fireplace fends off winter chill

moon highlights snowfall

.

Poem:

.

why is my brain on backward
why do I think such negative thoughts
why am I so socially awkward
why is my stomach always tied up in knots

born that way
mother nurtured
straight or gay
forever disconcerted

learning to live with the hand that was dealt
knowing that it’s human to have emotions
intuitive feelings that are truly heartfelt
an integral part of the daily devotions

the here and now
one day at a time
show me how
the steps I must climb

starting a new habit takes ninety days
to thine own self be honest and true
listen well, be one of the good proteges
smile at yourself when you finally come to

keep it simple
know your motives
let the eyes twinkle
repeat the votives

never forget that the world is full of others
the morning and evening begin with gratitude
there are many souls that you may call brothers
it is always better to be seen than to be viewed

kindness is never servitude
love arrows are very swift
happiness is an attitude
and life is a precious gift
