“Contemporary poets

got so obscure

that poetry kind of

fell out of favor. ”

.

~ Paul Ruffin

Elfje: (Cinquain)

coy

subtle hints

are you thinking

tell it like it

is

.

Haiku:

.

natures abundance

perpetual emotion

moving all senses

.

Poem:

.

a mask carved from stone
he was always so very, very serious
a smile would probably crack his face
his demeanor posed deleterious

most believed he had no heart
his vocabulary consisted of grunts and groans
but under it all his mother knew
he had a good heart and strong bones

who knows what is behind God’s grand design
who among us is qualified to judge another’s character
can anyone determine the strength of that man’s spine
only God knows who is prey and who is predator

once upon a certain Saturday all hell broke loose
recalcitrant unleashed a hailstorm of destruction
the stone face frowned and knew he had no excuse
he reacted as taught by his military instruction

a hero posthumously,  credited with saving many
we must  never judge a heart by the face it wears

ME’s note: Balance, not too obvious, not too obscure,                                                                                      makes for more enjoyable poetry.

has been me!

favorite

most liked

best there is

could never  do without

mine

.

Haiku:

.

Lightening and thunder

God’s ultimate fireworks show

highlights each season

.

Poem:

.

bugs rule the world

waiting for the bug man

the eco system to be imperiled

we know it is just another scam

.

the roach can survive a nuclear attack

live three days without it’s head

can see where its going in the pitch black

they will be here long after man is dead

.

the best bugs give us silk and honey

mosquitoes and fire ants the biggest pest

centipedes give us a run for our money

their goal is the whole wide world to infest

.

certain aboriginals do the larva eat

some pay good money for chocolate covered ants

I’m not quite certain I’d call them a treat

I will not go out of my way to give them a chance

.

no itching or scratching

it only makes things worse

just think of the millions now hatching

believe, Nature’s plan is not a curse

.

protect all life (maybe) as holy

but it is still fine to feed the fish

to eliminate the moths who make us holey

believe me, my favorite sound is still …. squish
