The Reality Of Your Life

.

“What’s writing

really about?

It’s about trying to

take fuller possession

of the reality

of your life.”

~  Ted Hughes

real

true facts

cannot be denied

never confused with fiction

actual

alligator tears

looking for more sympathy

loves the attention

.

Poem:

.

it is raining, God’s most precious gift
the tonic that gives everyone a lift
animal and vegetable alike
even the little boy whose name is Mike

except when it was time to clean behind his ears
Mother only laughed at his crocodile tears
an Aquarius, he took to water like a fish
his favorite snack was Mother’s knish

he was a sneak and from the truth he fled
his whole world existed inside his head
a loner by nature, he never had a friend
never someone on whom you could depend

drinking too much never helped his disposition
that and his total lack of any ambition
too many jobs to count, many marriages failed
could never remember how many times he was jailed

a devine miracle, God struck him sober
he became a human instead of an ogre
he found his soul, a smile gave him a facelift
behind the rain he is now God’s next best gift

I’m Not Lost

.

“I’m not lost

for I know

where I am.

But however,

where I am

may be lost.”

.

~ A. A. Milne

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

lost

can’t find

out of sight

nowhere to be seen

misplaced

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

a contented smile

mother contemplates her child

God’s purpose fulfilled

.

Poem:

.

even with all of your flaws, I love you
hope you love me too, warts and all
together, every day is something new
always glad to be at your beck and call

content to tolerate life’s ups and downs
seeing how others work things through
always willing to bring in the clowns
demanding more than just to make do

you are the answer to my prayer
an angel sent from heaven above
giving someone a life to share
knowing what it means to love

you will be forever in my heart
life or death can never take us apart
