BALLPOINT PENGUINS

.

“The BALLPOINT PENGUINS,

black and white,

Do little else but write and write.

Although they’ve nothing much to say,

They write and write it anyway….”

grateful

perfectly imperfect

doing God’s will

serving others before self

Humble

.

Haiku:

.

the days grow longer

flora and fauna gain speed

hot summer signals

.

Poem:

.

he stuttered when he spoke
ideas moving faster than his tongue
it took forever to tell a joke
rarely spoke when he was young

no hesitations when he sang
writing became his minds escape
clear as a bell did he harangue
communicated well using an edited tape

his keyboard never stuttered
varied and wide his imagination
clever stories never cluttered
kudos and many a public citation

when asked the source of his inspiration
his simple reply, a Godly donation

Beauty, Wisdom and Truth

.

“Poetry and art

nourish the soul

of the world with

the flavor-filled

substances of beauty,

wisdom and truth.”

.

― Aberjhani

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

noise

harsh, strident

acoustical echoes clash

street aromas added throughout

cacophony

.

Haiku:

.

cool air morning rime

winters hand refuses to fade

flowers, birds protest

.

Poem:

Beauty, Wisdom and Truth

.

the fat cat sleeps at her feet
morning light enters her chamber
noises begin to rise from the street
the fireplace glows with it’s last ember

nights filled with pleasant dreams
her many years filled with pleasure
fields of plenty beside flowing streams
the memories which are her treasure

like many she has loved and lost
yet she would not let her heart be broken
she knew her stars were crossed
yet no mean words were ever spoken

she arises giving gratitude to God
arms stretched wide to welcome the sun
eyes glinting with happiness, the smile ever broad
always able, ready and willing to have some fun

mother of my children, grandmother to theirs
always and ever the answer to my prayers
