A Life Without Pictures

.

.

“A life without books

is a thirsty life,

and one without poetry is…

like a life

without pictures.”

.

~  Stephen King

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

image

words invoked

artfully crafted poems

seen with mind’s eye

imagined

.

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

.

happy, joyous, free

heartfelt feelings in balance

mind controlled by self

.

Poem:

.

body and mind, is there really a soul
what do I need to make myself whole

is the spirit connected to something else
can a heart live without a pulse
must all answers be true or false

do the blind see with the mind’s eye
is the limit really the sky
do you fail if you never try
without air can you really fly

what if the wrong answer is really right
do things change when they go out of sight
things do change so that we may write

to each their own respective opinion
each one worthy of a standing ovation

Paradiso

.

“It is difficult

to write a paradiso

when all the superficial

indications are that

you ought to write

an apocalypse.”

.

~ Ezra Pound

Elfje:           (Cinquain)

.

Eden

perfect love

heaven’s holy realm

the hearts inner circle

paradise

.

Haiku:

.

gentle cooling breeze

golden leaves begin to fall

fields yield their harvest

.

Poem:

.

mumbling through a foggy dream
sleep walking on a balance beam
haunted by many past indiscretions
practicing the giving of false impressions

never satisfied with the life I lived
envious of those who have so much to give
of material things I was jealous
resentful or those whose lives were zealous

found some steps to show me the way
a path that lead me out of the gray
lead by an unlikely band of kindred spirit
positive souls with spunk and merit

who knew that life could begin again
a reason to live, new purposes to attain
a disease that can be put into remission
a Higher Power’s will brought to fruition

ever mindful of the built in forgetter
off to a meeting to help me get better
always thankful for that fateful God incident
knowing that it was not a simple coincident

being positive, being the person my God wants me to be
a soul lucky enough to be happy, joyous and free
