Uniting

.

“Poetry is

the art of

uniting pleasure

with truth.”

.

― Samuel Johnson

.

.

Elfje:

.

noise

vulgar speech

display of ignorance

oaths among the stupid

swearing

.

Haiku:

.

God lives forever

time measured by the light year

man’s life but a blink

.

 

Poem:

.

can I tell a lie

grandiose ego I

makes me want to cry

the morals which I defy

 

Mother taught me right

the church made  me fear sin

the commandments I thought were trite

it was always more important to win

 

t’was instant gratification that I sought

never dreamt of the consequence

tried every sin that could be bought

the highs were far above common sense

 

struck sober by a God incident

was almost restored to sane thinking

the addiction was false imprisonment

controlled by habits that were stinking

 

to thine own self be true

a better way of living

a Higher Power to see me through

enjoying a life I thought was missing

 

I cannot tell a lie

I no longer want to be that bad guy

Strike At The Soul

.

“To delight

the ear and the eye

is a mere sensual

indulgence;

—true poetry

strikes at the soul.”

.

― Samuel Egerton Brydges

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

me

in three

body, mind , soul

doing the Creators will

alive

.

Haiku:

.

beautiful evening

inspiration from above

nature adores praise

.

Poem:

.

Quiet the noisy mind
Have it in your heart to be kind

Seek serenity for your soul
Make peace of mind your only goal

Learn to love all and include yourself
Find tranquility in and of itself

For others be patient and tolerant
Of wants or needs be cognizant

For those who have no clue be forgiving
The Creator has a purpose for all of the living

And when your day is done let everyone agree
I was the person my God wanted me to be

.

Love, hugs and prayers. ME and the Boss
