Shameless

.

“Poets are

shameless

with their

experiences:

they exploit them.”

.

~ Friedrich Nietzsche

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.

.

truth

no  lie

what it is

in real time, space

facts

.

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

.

cool mornings arrive

the sun warms the afternoon

spring in temperate zones

.

Poem:

.

The only truth we have
is the real life we have lived
life in Hebrew, haim, to the rav
from memory the past is derived

ego’s pride makes up the lies
the false life we wanted to live
trying to avoid the booby prize
avoiding effort we needed to give

was it real or was it a dream
times swift pace makes life a blur
layers of reality from a deep running stream
ambitions which events had us defer

Tomorrow, God granted,
will we live the truth
with real can we be contented
or must we seek the fountain of youth

don’t waste time waiting for the last dance
if you are given the chance
live a life that you want to be true
a life with no lies is easy to review

Possess The Spirit

.

A good writer possesses

not only his own spirit

but also the spirit

of his friends.”

.

~ Friedrich Nietzsche

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

fortune

dumb luck

God’s ultimate plan

beyond a person’s control

destiny

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

things we must avoid

growing old

things we must accept

.

Poem:

.

yesterday is history
tomorrow is a mystery

living just for today
for the best we pray
doing things the right way

flights of fancy from the ideologist
never having to be an apologist
souls saved by the theologist
minds untwisted by the psychologist

happy are the eyes that twinkle
smiles punctuated by a dimple
why can’t life ever be simple

think positive, expect the best
use what works and ignore the rest
