An Ideal

“Every poet…

finds himself born

in the midst of prose.

He has to struggle

from the littleness

and obstruction of

an actual world

into the freedom

and infinitude of

an ideal.”

.

― Thomas Carlyle

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

unique

that place

like no other

paradise of one’s own

utopia

.

Haiku:

.

fog cascades surreal
fairy dust covers snails trails
morning dew sparkles

.

Poem:

.

I love tic-tac-toe
the game played with Xs and Os
Xs are for the hugs I crave
Os are for the kisses I gave

the British call it noughts and crosses
a stuffy way to put love in boxes
I guess a cold handshake will have to do
what do they do to the girl they want to woo

a special derisive thank you to Hallmark
knowing that love needed a renewed spark
for keeping St. Valentine’s legend alive
and a bigger business to contrive

can’t forget the sweets for the sweets
Russel-Stover and Godiva provide the eats
splurge, start the diet tomorrow
another good day for remorse and sorrow

this year, ignore the commercial
be special, love special
not just for that special day
but for each and every day

and in every way

Just One Person

.

“The purpose of poetry

is to remind us /

how difficult it is

to remain

just one person…”

.

― Czesław Miłosz

.

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

dexterous

many hats

will try anything

with multi faceted personality

confused

.

Haiku:

.

morning chill brings fog

fall colors portend winter

mother natures sleep

.

Poem:

.

The mind is the key
To a Higher Power I plea

I am but a steward of theUni-verse
Deigned not to do the perverse

Mother nature to protect
Nor my body to neglect

Acknowledging that the soul dwells
beautifully adorned in light pastels

In the heart of all who pray
For however long or short their stay

The mind is the enigma
Choices are what grow the stigma

The mind must humbly respect
So that the body and soul will reflect

A life that could not be any greater
A life that is worthy of the Creator
