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

A Stretch Of The Imagination

.

You’re a cavity in my oasis,
You’re a porthole in my sea,
You’re a stretch of the imagination
every time you look at me.

You’re an ocean in my wineglass,
You’re a Steinway on the beach,
You’re a captivating audience,
an exciting Rembrandt,

A Masterpiece.”

.

~ Charlotte M. Liebel

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

imagine

mind’s eye

what could be

things yet dreamt of

envision

.

Haiku:

.

the birds have returned

spring looks forward to summer

nests are full of eggs

.

Poem:

.

.

lies, lies, lies
why must the alcoholic lie
the truth would be so simple
has it something to do with being a mental cripple

the brain is on backwards
life is lived in the negative
many take pride in being bad actors
for many it is in the genes, mostly inherited

lying to themselves, denial
lying to others, justification
their  most fervent prayer is for a mistrial
for family and friends it is just frustration

the drunk is anything but modest
trouble is he cannot get honest
he is addicted, body, mind and soul
a good argument for population control

if they want the help there is a way out
kind words spoken quietly, no need to shout
the miracles rely on a Higher Power
and a judicious using of ones willpower

willingness to change is the most difficult must
in himself he must learn to trust
following the suggestions there is a guarantee
to find a life that is happy, joyous and free
