Stupider

.

“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

.

~C. S. Lewis

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

.

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

flaw

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

.

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

Weightless Words

.

“How weightless

words are

when nothing

will do.”

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

sorry

my mistake

doesn’t cut it

learn to make amends

repentant

.

Haiku:                (7-5-7 VARIATION)

.

tropical storms wreak havoc

too much water floods

man builds in the low area

.

Poem:

.

words  fail too many romantics
they worry too much about semantics

forget the talk, don’t tell me
let your actions and heart be free

show me that it’s not all about you
love is not about what you think is due

a two way street is an agreeable compromise
love is never about the value of the prize

love is a feeling that transcends thinking
mutual consent where everyone is winning

above race, beyond religion, unconditional
love and marriage are something traditional

love, forget the words, they are not needed
love is when the heart has truly conceded
