Haiku On Twitter

“So I don’t think

I’ll make Poet Laureate,

but I swear I’m not

twisted and bitter

If finely-wrought talents

don’t weigh in the balance,

I can always write

haiku on Twitter.”

Poem

.

maybe I am just a lunatic
the moon looming as a subject
the witch crossing its face on a broomstick
my feeble mind in a total disconnect

waiting for the cow to cross over
saw the fork elope with the spoon
rover, rover cross through the clover
if it were June would I swoon or croon

childhood memories in a scramble
events twisted by the fragile ego
emotional harms overshadow the gambol
fantasies to celebrate the grandiose libido

a dark stormy cloud obscures the man
guess I’ll return to believing I’m Peter Pan

Elfje

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

The Dutch form

Elfje

Eleven words;

line one – one word

line two – two words

line three – three words

line four – four words

line five – one word

.

No rhyming required .. just some simple thinking ..

a story, a complete thought, just what my simple brain

needs in order to keep it occupied and out of trouble.

Elfje:

Simple

Easy peasy

Life without complications

No worries, no frets

Luck

.

Elfje:

Cool

Balanced emotions

Symmetry in motion

Human in classic form

Poised

.

Elfje:

Traditional

From generations

Habit, custom, time-honored

Doing what is acceptable

Orthodox

.

Elfje:

Grandiose

Big deal

Over the top

More than is excessive

Pretentious

.

Exercise over … hopefully I will attempt a real poem soon.
