Genuine

“Poetry

… a place for the genuine.

Hands that can grasp,

eyes that can dilate,

hair that can rise.”

.

― Marianne Moore

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

eyes

grow wider

seeing is beieving

how could that be

magic

.

Haiku:

.

listening to the birds

natures sounds so melodic

happiness and joy

.

Poem:

.

sitting on the fence rail
pondering the choices to be made
should I, could I, would I
why am I always so afraid

forever having fun
lessons never learned
selfish instant gratification
all those bridges that I have burned

as the Dutchman always said
too soon oldt, too late schmart
if you mind, does it matter
everyone must read Descartes

reverie over, make the decision
listen to the heart that God made
it knows to do the next right thing
without the need for an accolade

happiness, joy and freedom
blessed by a light from above
conscious, aware, sensing the vibe
enjoying the souls best feeling . . . love

A Meaning

.

“Even when poetry

has a meaning,

as it usually has,

it may be inadvisable

to draw it out.

Perfect understanding

will sometimes

almost extinguish pleasure.”

.

~ A.E. Housman

.

Elfje:

.

aesthetic

intense erotica

genuine and exquisite

softly arousing every sense

pleasure

.

Haiku:

.

warm clover nectar

bees produce golden honey

natures perfect food

.

Poem:

.

made you think

you dirty fink

trying to read between the lines

looking for revealing tell tale signs

while I was writing

trying to be exciting

trying to be just a little confusing

all mixed up with some silly amusing

knowing that a good poem never ends

let’s quit this game and just be friends

for getting this far give me credit

and no you were not asked to edit

your so vain you thought this poem was about you

was about you, was about you

but I could have picked any old animal out of the zoo

use your brain to read whats on the line

say you don’t know if you have a spine

truthfully, it is not in the meaning, it is just the rhyme

finis, because I can only take just so much of a good time.
