High-sounding Words

.

“We have too many

high-sounding words,

and too few actions

that correspond

with them.”

.

~ Abigail Adams

“the highest sounding word
that demonstrates the least action:
politician”

inspiration from Mother Nature
kudos to the Great Creator
there is a God today and it is not me
immensely grateful for all that I see

trees dressed out in their summer greens
nest of birds and squirrels complete the scenes
for extra drama add the spanish moss
the cuckoo will let you know who’s boss

tree rings divulge the weathers history
what they saw will always be a mystery
did Johnny Appleseed wear a pan for a hat
the bluebird of happiness stopped for a chitchat

blue skies and sunshine, a perfect day
self-quarantined, behind the window I’ll stay

the mind

and believe,

it can achieve.”

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

.

fake crocodile tears

sympathy for a hurt pride

empathy deserved

.

Poem:

.

if it is not love, it is the trees
a fascination with the birds and the bees
poetry tells stories and speaks emotions
living life by going through the motions

love is learning to see with the heart
knowing that everyone has a part
the very first step is sharing kindness
common interests will soon lead to fondness

today I’ll love my favorite squeeze
a thankful heart contented to please
together we’ll enjoy the beach and some flowers
going home to watch reruns of Fawlty Towers

there for each other as life does change
ignoring quirky habits others may think strange
happy are they who share love and nature
never to argue with the great Creator

love unconditionally, be a blessing
wear a big smile, it will keep them guessing
