Who Most Ignores

.

“Most people ignore

most poetry

because poetry

ignores most people.”

.

~ Adrian Mitchell

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

ignored

abandoned soul

misplaced spiritual essence

nowhere to be found

neglected

.

Haiku:

.

welcomed happiness

brilliant flora and fauna

creation evolves

.

Poem:

.

today is this moment
as time marches on
freedom is enjoyment
not ever being a pawn

just enjoying today
happy is the attitude
ignoring the sad gray
love we gladly exude

surrounded by nature
meditating in awe
no one is a stranger
obeying God’s law

gratitude for the blessing
on bended knees we pray
avoiding the obsessing
keeping the devil at bay

being the kind person
a Higher Power wants me to be
just for today

Anything Can Happen

.

“One breath

taken completely;

one poem,

fully written,

fully read –

in such a moment,

anything can happen.”

.

~ Jane Hirshfield

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

totally

belly laugh

filled with pleasure

life lived in happiness

awesome

.

Haiku:

.

the crack of the bat

boys of summer playing games

family together

.

Poem:

.

in the blink of an eye
lightning split the sky
the thunder however
rolled on and on forever

the smell of ozone lingered
another flash answered
rain drops began their pitter patter
to the ducks it doesn’t really matter

like clockwork the afternoon showers arrive
grass, flowers, weeds, growing in overdrive
the deluge over, humidity swells
gardens adorned with silver bells and cockleshells

did mankind really evolve
another question we may never solve
so many questions, so few answers
are we creating our own cancers

let it rain, let it shine
just stand in awe of the worlds design
