Expand Your Senses

.

“If my poetry aims

to achieve anything,

it’s to deliver people

from the limited ways

in which they see and feel.”

.

― Jim Morrison

.

Elfje:

.

opinion

tunnel vision

one way street

no rhyme no reason

majority

.

Haiku:

.

eyes closed aroma

spring repopulates the earth

nature seduces

.

Poem:

.

he clings tenaciously to his comfort zone

he adamantly denies that he is a clone

.

he statistically fits into the status quo

his wife has replaced him with a rubber dildo

.

the kids don’t introduce him to their friends

he spends his days making unnecessary amends

.

the local bowling league failed to re-invite him

his insurance man told him to not go near the gym

.

the ultimate fanatic he paints his face in the home team colors

people in the  office will only comment, “he knows his numbers”

.

time is making him old and he is totally oblivious

like too many lives the ending is sadly piteous

.

if only he could have been persuaded to read a poem

With A Dash

.

“Poetry is a

deal of joy

and

pain and wonder,

with a dash

of the dictionary.”

.

~Khalil Gibran

.

Elfje:

.

words

serious, humorous

chosen at random

a message comes alive

writing

.

Haiku:

.

jasmine blooms and blooms

aroma intoxicates

birds, bees, fine dining

.

Poem:

.

looking for the inane and silly

tired of being stodgy serious

bored with making sense really

my sign obviously is in Aquarius

.

always ready for a good belly laugh

I am definitely not the worlds critic

trying to crop life like a photograph

bored to death by the pure analytic

.

found the humor in some good friends

choosing only the ones who express joy

discovering that there are other dividends

people who are just the real mccoy

.

laugh with me, do not laugh  at me

I promise to do the same for you

let us share nothing but ecstatic glee

may we always remain tried and true.

.

Want to be my friend, make me laugh.

.

ME and the Boss
