More Cleverly

.

“Writing is learning

to say nothing,

more cleverly

each day.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

innuendo

nasty insinuation

bearer of misinformation

who started the rumor

gossip

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

quick to parse your word

ever looking for excuse

to misinterpret

 

negative side of the coin

sabotaging the meaning

 

.

Poem:

.

had a wonderful dream
the start of my best poem yet
can’t remember shit

was it set beside a babbling stream
was it a place where we all met
thinking I’m going to throw a fit

was it to include a unique scheme
were you playing Russian roulette
time to sing john james jingleheimer schmidt

was I riding on a sunbeam
need to tie my brain to the ethernet
sorrow deserves another banana split

need to collect my thoughts on a particle beam
bad habit, old age, I forget
maybe tomorrow, I’ll remember shit

Ah, I Remember

.

“Ah, distinctly I remember

it was in the bleak December

And each separate dying ember

wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly I wished the morrow;

— vainly I had sought to borrow

From my books surcease of sorrow

— sorrow for the lost Lenore.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

pleasure

feels good

free from guilt

can make everyone happy

delight

.

Haiku:

.

winter snows cover

Mother Nature takes her nap

cold silence prevails

.

Poem:

.

with a God given aptitude
and a very positive attitude
one cannot but have gratitude
for living a life of love
tolerance we can duplicate
patience which we can educate
forgiveness a spirit to elevate
guidance from above

beginning the day with reflections
strength to share kind affections
courage to follow His directions
being able  to love
doing nothing that is immoral
learning to live with thinking abnormal
accepting that no one is immortal
inspiration from above

no fear of being secluded
resentments finally concluded
in society a joy to be included
glad to share the love
given a pathway to recovery
relief from all of the drudgery
every breath a God given luxury
blessings from above
