The Face Of God

.

“To love

another person

is to see the

face of God.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

face

look to

fight to win

see what is ahead

confront

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

love is in the air

the atmosphere is pleasing

beautiful people

a gleeful wedding party

everyone has the feeling

.

Poem:

.

every thought is a prayer
a question or an answer to declare
no need to kneel beside the bed
close the eyes and clear the head

gratitude must be a part of the morning prayer
identifying, trying not to compare
challenging a faith that comes and goes
a soul that doubts what others propose

my whole life has been a wish and a prayer
the outcome, I deem, has been unfair
in God’s time all prayers are answered
like wildflowers his blessings scattered

it is alright to borrow someone else’s prayer
knowing that a prayer will go everywhere
some may receive its benefits, some may not
what is nice is that you gave them a thought

be careful what you pray for,
you might just get it

What Can Be Explained

.

.

“What can be

explained

is not poetry.

.

~ William Butler Yeats

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

prose

not poems

stream of conscious

stoned hippies ruined poetry

meaningless

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

how fast is the mind

speed of light

to quick to forget

.

Poem:

.

they read the same paragraph
there were two different opinions
they saw the same photograph
neither had the same visions

who is to judge right or wrong
as long as nobody gets hurt
providing the price is just a song
given that the first course is dessert

how important is it anyhow
this too shall pass
does it make one raise the eyebrow
does it make you first in class

be tolerant,  allow others to be right
be patient, prayers are answered in God’s time
be forgiving, be willing to give up the fight
be generous, brother, can you spare a dime

be the person God wants you to be
a  soul that is happy, joyous and free.
