I Do Believe

.

“I do believe

in poetry.

I believe that

there are creatures

endowed with the power

to put things together

and bring them back

to life”

.

~ Hélène Cixous

.

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

words

are things

when put together

they may mean something

communicate

.

Haiku:

.

rain rain go away

come again another day

does the rain listen

.

Poem:

.

who would have thunk
never worried about consequences
just drank until drunk
no common or any other senses

instant gratification was the only goal
selfish, self-centered, me, me, me
a sick body and mind with no soul
no clue of what it meant to be free

the story begins with what happened
there are no accidental coincidences
miracles beyond what could be imagined
just another of God’s many incidences

a fellowship of sots led the way
steps to rise from the depths of misery
only a Higher Powers will to obey
a simple path exposed by inquiry

the story continues with what it’s like now
a life that’s lived beyond one’s wildest dreams
using daily reminders of it works HOW
easily worth striving for . . . by all means

Genuine

.

“Poetry

… a place for the genuine.

Hands that can grasp,

eyes that can dilate,

hair that can rise.”

.

― Marianne Moore

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

eyes

grow wider

seeing is beieving

how could that be

magic

.

Haiku:

.

listening to the birds

natures sounds so melodic

happiness and joy

.

Poem:

.

sitting on the fence rail
pondering the choices to be made
should I, could I, would I
why am I always so afraid

forever having fun
lessons never learned
selfish instant gratification
all those bridges that I have burned

as the Dutchman always said
too soon oldt, too late schmart
if you mind, does it matter
everyone must read Descartes

reverie over, make the decision
listen to the heart that God made
it knows to do the next right thing
without the need for an accolade

happiness, joy and freedom
blessed by a light from above
conscious, aware, sensing the vibe
enjoying the souls best feeling . . . love
