Useful

.

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

.

~  Ogden Nash

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
.
verse
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise
hymn
.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.
a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

Inspired Talent

.

Talent is a faucet.

When it is on,

one must write.

Inspiration is a farce

that poets have invented

to give themselves

importance.”

.

~ Jean Anouilh

.

.

Elfje:

.

poetry

begats itself

words need partners

imagined images made real

inspired                                        ( or is that “talented”  ? ? )

.

Haiku:

.

cold north’rn clipper

winter descends abruptly

natures call to sleep

.

Poem:

.

happy eyes say glad to see ya
the smile echoes the feeling
wonderful greetings that shout aha
the giggles, the laughs, the squealing

so we don’t speak the same language
the body knows you’re a friend
being cute does have it’s advantage
the heart doesn’t like to pretend

the warm fuzzies that make memories last
a tender touch that makes two into one
contentment  and sentimentality unsurpassed
nothing can ever be lost in translation

who needs words    ? ? ?
friends for a day, friends for a lifetime
hate and anger are for the birds
let the moment say, “will you be mine”

have a friend, be a friend, smile
know that sharing makes this life worthwhile
