A Love Of Words

“…fine love poetry

tends to be written

when the object of

one’s affection is

at a safe distance;

also,

it often reflects

a love of words

more than a love of women…”

go

no wait

maybe we can

make up our minds

indecision

.

Haiku:

.

colorful rainbow

natures eternal promise

life giving water

.

Poem:

.

modern times demand modern poetry

how is that done with old fashioned words

must we reinvent a modern psychiatry

easier to just smoke some old fashioned herbs

.

can the poet create a new set of feelings

make his message more obscure

manufacture words with new meanings

stoop to using semantics that are impure

.

the easiest motive is to be yourself

trust God that he made you unique

be honest, the best poem is oneself

can you live with your own critique

.

everything happens in God’s time

the poets acceptance is declared in his rhyme

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
