Riches

.

“I have

no riches

but my thoughts,

Yet these are

wealth enough

for me”

~ Sara Teasdale

memories

emotions shared

time spent together

common bonds, mutual pleasures

riches

.

Haiku:

.

winter hot, spring cold

natures rhythm run amuck

unseasonable

.

Poem:

.

what stirs the emotions
fluffy white clouds against an azure blue sky
the birds and the bees singing and buzzing
should I laugh or should I cry

do hearts have feelings
is it sad or am I happy
tears of remorse, tears of joy
must the words always be sappy

events accompanied by somesthesia
visible, audible, aromatic or tactile
vivid memories and thoughts subliminal
will they continue when we become senile

are feelings sensual or are they intuitive
are passions the product of nurtured or nature
the sick shut down the emotional stream
no longer human, a thoughtless cold creature

be moved, be human, enjoy God’s creations
His greatest works are emotionally inspiring

Obvious

“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.
