New And Moving Truths

.

.

“Verses which

do not teach men

new and moving truths

do not deserve

to be read.”

.

~ Voltaire

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

deplete

use up

never save anything

waste not want not

exhausted

.

Haiku:

.

natures lessons learned

camouflage, speed  and  weapons

eat or be eaten

.

Poem:

.

can the man write if he has no talent
can the man sing if he has no song
did anyone notice that the church bells are silent
why does the news concentrate on the wrong

when Dr. Peale died so did positive thinking
the mega congregations reap their millions
the liberals give while the coffers are shrinking
who gave talking heads the right to opinions

the pendulum swings from side to side
the tolerant and the bigot argue their points
public sentiment goes along for the ride
reality and fantasy seek separate disjoints

will there ever be a middle of the road
can man find peace among the discord
will it be possible to have an equitable civil code
can we all agree on what to call our Lord

what would happen if we all knelt to pray
would the universe give us all the same karma
would we be required to put it in our dossier
can we measure up to the varied vara

think optimistic, be the solution, be perfect
the Great Creator has made no junk
surprise, don’t do what others expect
you may even make a pet out of a skunk

have faith
where would the world be without hope

Poetry Is Not Free

.

“I’ve given offense

by saying I’d as soon

write free verse

as play tennis

with the net down.”

.

~ Robert Frost

.

Elfje:

.

sweet
perfect food
Great Creators gift
Nature provides the nectar
honey

.

Haiku:

.

weeds are but flowers
that cannot grow in a row
and not where wanted

.

Poem:

.

do I need an hour to be happy ? ? ?
are we the animal social ? ? ?
small talk and being chatty
a habit, a routine, devotional

using a libation to open up
inhibitions and morals erased
deluded to drink from the loving cup
dreams and thoughts that are not chaste

and then comes the morning after
do I remember being happy
tears of regret drown out the laughter
the mind stretched like pulled taffy

introduced to a new way of living
choosing to be happy all of the time
turned from self centered to giving
from the grandiose to the sublime

every day filled with laughter
a sober life is all that matters
