A True Poet

.

“He who draws noble delights

from sentiments of poetry

is a true poet,

though he has never written

a line in all his life.”

Poem:

.

mother cultivated the beautiful iris
from Spanish iris translates to mean rainbow
exquisite colors which remain nameless
captured in the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh

pleasurable emotions tied to beauty
all creation is in perfect balance
except for the crazy who are a little fruity
and those who went down the hole with Alice

the birds and the bees, nature’s splendor
the males awesome colors to attract a mate
the sitting female camouflaged to fool the predator
except for the nerd who can’t get a date

we guess the exception is there to keep the balance
a unique place for the wanna be, the pretender
what God has provided in normals absence
in a mother’s heart everyone is a contender

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
