You Triumph

.

“Breath,

dreams,

silence,

invincible calm,

you triumph.”

beat

gain ground

out in front

from last to first

win

Haiku:

rainy season starts

every day a short shower

humidity rules

Poem:
.

he tried to strangle the keyboard
the words were stuck in outer space
everything read like the congressional record
every idea seemed to be out of place

the poem would not get off of first base
it blatantly lied to me with a straight face
it giggled and laughed and called me names
it made every attempt to go up in flames

finally I declared enough is enough
time for the poetic muse to get tough
this poem needs a topic like death or love
compromise said the poem,
lets talk about the God from above

the Creator who makes all things possible
the One whose concept is philosophical
keeping balance in the Uni-verse, day and night
and when we accept, everything is just right

the list goes on for those who are forever grateful
an inside job whose attitude is delightful
having the courage to build on a foundation of faith
to fend off the curse that is cast by the wraith

the Almighty was benevolent and the words erupted
all is good when the Spirit is trusted
even the poem gave a sigh of contentment
the last thing anyone would ever want is a resentment

another poem inspired by Providence
trusting in the All Powerful’s competence

A Separate Experience

.

.

Literature is not

a picture of life,

but is a separate experience

with its own kind of flow

and enhancement.”

red

the stripes

the stars white

a flag to honor

Haiku:

.

flowers need water
lack of rain is apparent
what is God planning

Poem:

.

those who can’t, teach
critics who can’t, preach
the human form of the leech

it is so easy to pick on others
done by those who don’t like their mothers
the loners who can’t be like brothers

governments just wanting to placate the herd
politically correct and gender neutral preferred
unfortunately love has become a passé word

woe is the man whose ego is right sized
by the really sick he is totally despised
as a milk toast he is characterized

keep on praying, don’t be afraid
big money has manufactured this charade
they know that there is no free in free trade

there will come a day that no one can predict
one can only hope that it will be a peaceful conflict
hopefully it is the winning side that peace has picked

today, try to make your own choices
be wary of the devil and his many voices
don’t let social media control your devices

don’t teach, don’t preach, share the love
vote for those who believe that there is a God above
and just stay out of the way when push comes to shove
