The Dream You Dream

.

“Freedom is

the dream you dream

While putting thought

in chains again –”

.

― Giacomo Leopardi

wish

for more

hope beyond hope

make it suddenly appear

magic

.

Haiku:

.

lawnmowers humming

nature becoming abused

harmony ignored

.

Poem:

.

it is so easy to lament
especially when one is perfect
feels good just to vent
finger pointing to deflect

isn’t there always someone else to blame
could have, would have, should have
trying anything to avoid the shame
think I’ll just go live in a cave

outside of my garden the world is ugly
political wars with religious histories
dictators driving everyone buggy
big egos cannot solve the mysteries

guess I’ll just go on complaining
nobody ever listens anyways
worry is so emotionally draining
self seeking gains no praise

please empathise, it will make you feel better
let us find a common ground,
let’s complain about the weather
let’s get off the merry-go-round

an attitude of gratitude will give one pleasure
it is one’s choice to decide what they treasure

Muffled Syllables

.

.

“The muffled syllables that Nature speaks

Fill us with deeper longing for her word;

She hides a meaning that the spirit seeks,

She makes a sweeter music than is heard.”

.

― George Santayana

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

listen

in silence

the universe sings

every molecule dances accordingly

harmony

.

Haiku:

.

the relentless sun

hot muggy and oppressing

the summer swelters

.

.

Poem:

nap time, babies and oldsters
completing natures cycle
bottle to bottle, diapers to diapers
ashes to ashes and dust to dust

God gives babies to the young
those who have the strength
the oldest are attended by the mature
those who have the obligation

there is no creature that doesn’t sleep
some by day most by night
some require the counting of sheep
the young just usually put up a fight

the lucky may have a pleasant dream
unfortunates are haunted by the nightmare
does night vision have a vivid color scheme
how long is a day to the hibernating bear

sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite
and may your dreams take you as high as a kite
