No, Thank You

.

“If the only

prayer you said

was ‘thank you,’

that would be

enough.”

.

~ Meister Eckhart

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

prayer

a thought

asking for guidance

listening for the answer

meditation

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

sadness turned to joy

negative to positive

anger turned to love

.

Poem:

.

he thought what he felt was a feeling
but the alcohol always kept him reeling
looking forward he saw only the ceiling
his reality was never truly appealing

near death made him change his ways
time allowed him to see through the haze
his body recovered from the sick malaise
to a Higher Power he gives the praise

it became a slew of feelings that he felt
his roller coaster emotions needed a seat belt
his cold stone heart had begun to melt
a new hand of cards he had been dealt

a new friend and then more friends
a fellowship that taught him to make amends
how the wreckage of the past to cleanse
and the twelve steps that paid big dividends

today his feelings are a joy to explore
emotions that are allowed to soar
a life that has been his to restore
peace, serenity and so much more

A Universal Message

friends are forever
concerns support each other
feelings that are shared

staying young with memories
while growing old together

.

Poem:

.

friends stay young with memories
while best friends grow old together
richer than gold friends fill our treasuries
friends forever, regardless of the weather

some every day, some just once in awhile
a good friend shares both the best and the worst
a true friend never tires, mile after mile
for friends the roles are never reversed

to have a friend, be a friend
selfish, self-centered  never works
it’s not the money but the time we spend
two friends can be a large network

a stranger is just a friend we have yet to meet
a cold shoulder is a definite sign of unwelcome
something in common makes a friend complete
what works is a smile, a word of welcome

no expectations, just be a friend
for the moment or for a lifetime
just accept what God intends
and if you are real lucky,

you will have a friend to the end.
