It Found Me

.

“I wasn’t meant

for reality,

but life came

and found me.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

frost

cold rime

creek to lake

all things that froze

ice

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

winter cold persist

glad to see daylight growing

spring stands in the wings

.

Poem:

.

magnolia blossoms aroma wafted above
young hearts below dreaming of love
springs chilly rain waters tomorrows hope
urges so strong that make some want to elope

generation after generation, God’s design
who can argue that it is not divine
fill your dreams with all you can imagine
be ready to accept whatever may happen

the quiet mind knows serene
renew ancient faith as did St. Augustine
with this life there is not a guarantee
it will be or it was meant not to be             (said Shakespeare)

stay young and always dream of love
for love will bring blessings from above

Ignoring Life

.

“Literature is

the most

agreeable way of

ignoring life.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

ignoring

no consideration

accidentally on purpose

maybe just old age

forgetting

.

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

.

been there, have the shirt
enjoyable memories
trips to my fantasy land

.

Poem:

.

the truth is rarely what it is
the conclusions were always his
my two cents was always an opinion
his attitude was he had dominion

does it matter just because he is older
my yellow spine does make him bolder
his A’s in school made him Mothers favorite
this made me feel like a useless parasite

adding insult to injury he graduates from college
my world was about gaining more carnal knowledge
for every one of his ups I had a down
my career aspiration was to be a clown

my shrink told me I had to kill him off
I ended up getting the whooping cough
I woke up, the dream was really wild
the cruel joke was, I was an only child
