A Lump In The Throat

.

“You too?”

She asked Ruth.

“How do your poems

start out?”

“They start as

a lump in the throat,”

she said.

Poem:

today is a happy day
why ? ? ?
because my attitude said so
a decision to go with the flow

today is a glorious day
why ? ? ?
because my Higher Power made it that way
it even gets better when I pray

today is a perfect day
why ? ? ?
because my God doesn’t make any junk
even better since I stopped getting drunk

today is a beautiful day
why ? ? ?
beauty is in the eye of the beholder
the Pieta was carved from a marble boulder

today is a magnificent day
why ? ? ?
because the Great Creator gave us words
spectacularimpressivestrikingglorioussuperb,
majesticawesomebreathtaking, splendiferous

today is a wonderful day
why ? ? ?
because it is my day and that’s the way I want it
hope you can do the same for your day

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
