A Moment’s Thought

.

“I said:

‘A line will take us

hours maybe;

Yet if it does not seem

a moment’s thought,

Our stitching and unstitching

has been naught.”

.

― William Butler Yeats

idea

problem solved

if it works

put to the test

Haiku:

.

snow melts on the roof

icicles hang from the eaves

storms cold reminders

Poem:

.

family stories handed down
characters and events
a legacy of disputed renown
all told using  phoney accents

the uncle who was the clown
the pioneers who lived in tents
the forest that they all cut down
the ones who worked for presidents

the maker of her own wedding gown
the aunt who gave the best presents
a horse thief who lost a showdown
the old homestead with the picket fence

embellished by generations on down
who among us can dispute their contents
never a sad face, dry eye or a frown
will future scions have a laugh at my expense

Poem:    good motivation in rhyme . . .

.

the rewards of selfless giving
happy, joyous and free living
avoiding selfish ulterior motives
applauding others with superlatives

God’s most generous paradox
no surprises like Pandora’s box
the more you give the more you receive
no smoke and mirrors to deceive

universal balance, yin and yang
good and evil which boomerang
unfortunately bad is just too easy
too late when the feeling is queasy

love unconditionally, be your kindest
serenity and peace of mind are priceless
don’t allow the Devil to set your table
let a loving God your will enable
