Weightless Words

.

“How weightless

words are

when nothing

will do.”

.

~ Philip Levine, Breath

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

Forbidden To See

.

“For now,

poetry has the capacity –

in its own ways and

by its own means –

to remind us of something

we are forbidden to see.”

.

~ Adrienne Rich

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

wax

bees knees

sweaty elbow grease

see your own reflection

polish

.

Haiku:

.

tropical storm floods

too many paved parking lots

nature always wins

.

Poem:

.

to my brother
from another mother
better than a best friend
dude like no other

together to the end
over backwards I would bend
always there in a pinch
a helping hand to lend

willing to give an inch
generous without a flinch
love it when you call me sonny
forever making my life a cinch

would you be my honey bunny
could you lend me some money
what do you mean  – – friend
I was just trying to be funny
