Bring Some Of It With You

.

“You will

find poetry

nowhere

unless you bring

some of it with you.”

.

― Joseph Joubert

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

rhyme

shared thoughts

reader to listener

audience to the writer

poetry

Haiku:

.

freezing rain breaks boughs

nature’s attempt to prune limbs

springs healthy new growth

.

Poem:

.

once there were a happy people
living and loving very peaceful
every house had a heaven pointing steeple
children played and laughed gleeful

could there ever again be such a place
acceptance did not depend on your face
everyone respected each others space
there was only one human race

can politicians dictate such a thing
do miracles arrive on an angel’s wing
faithful marriages signed with a ring
harmonies that all are able to sing

will geneticist eventually eliminate the ego
no more testing with a placebo
no man made boundaries, you are free to go
peace and love the only credo

let us all raise a grateful prayer
work together to clear the air
eliminate the threat of warfare
solve the need for welfare

know that time will go on without us
only evil thoughts should be treasonous
most hopes and dreams are superfluous
God,
just let me be another bozo on the bus

What Do You Know

“It was a

scary thought.

A man could be

surrounded by

poetry reading

and not know it.”

magical

optical illusion

sleight of hand

out of this world

fantasy

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

not guilty of love

platonic admiration

best friends forever

Poem:

.

she lived in a negative world
her hands into fist were always curled
her face wore a permanent frown
with makeup she looked just like a clown

jealous envy colored her eyes green
one upmanship made her a fairy queen
and nothing she ever did was very small
she was the consummate know it all

adding to her woes was being a hypochondriac
she was born under every sign of the zodiac
she knows everyone’s selfish ulterior motives
she believes the whole world is on sedatives

lost in space
psychiatrists example of a typical nut case
she is a child only a mother could love
it is the past that she can never let go of

patience, tolerance, she is in our prayers
sad that some lives are just nightmares
