No Interpreter Needed

.

“Great poetry

needs no interpreter

other than a

responsive heart.”

.

― Helen Keller

Elfje:

.

feelings

emotionally charged

accepting what comes

life on life’s terms   (Life on God’s terms)

human

.

Haiku:

.

the shores sandy dunes

pushed by the oceans currents

summer vacation

.

Poem:

.

some say the best poems extol the virtues of love

while soaring above on the wings of a dove

stories about feelings, fears and life

worries about things that cause angst and strife

.

every day the feelings are different

those without mothers become the ignorant

books with stories teach us how to feel

family and friends explain that which is real

.

some seek to alter the mood so they need not think

can’t figure out why when they lie to the shrink

sad are those whose brains are on a perpetual swing

ups and downs caused by the brains short circuit wiring

.

lucky are those whose friends have feelings that are mutual

the paranoid, the loner are not that unusual

will man ever be able to fix the brain

can there be a time when no one will be insane

.

until medicine finds the cure

self education will be the basic tool

learning to live the Golden Rule

hope’s of growing up and becoming mature

In Slow Motion

.

.

Poetry

is prose

in slow

motion.”

.

― Nicholson Baker,

The Anthologist

.

.

Elfje:

.

hurry

run fast

with head down

no place to go

emotions

.

Haiku:

.

the hummingbird flits

in slow motion it’s still fast

summers brilliant gem

.

Poem:

.

I still know no better

errors, screw-ups and mistakes

nickname was the flake

never needed an abettor

.

a Higher Power was my protector

should have died a couple of times

never caught doing the crimes

could never pass the lie detector

.

today is a new way of thinking

before the act understand the consequences

before the bet take care of the expenses

it all begins with no more drinking

.

thoughts and actions guided by God’s will

faith that I’m protected by  fairy godmothers

finding the most satisfaction helping others

working for dreams and wishes to fulfill

.

life, as always, a matter of choices

learning that there are another options

seeking out the most enjoyable actions

finding pleasure in listening to the voices

.

hopefully, today, that voice will be yours.
