The Desire

.

“The desire

to write

grows with

writing.”

.

~ Desiderius Erasmus

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

write

to pen

spell words right

print, type, scribe, sign

tell

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

the winter earth rest

a season to replenish

a spring feast is next

.

Poem:

.

the dream so real I could touch it
awoke with a head that was split
in a cold sweat with a hairy tongue
feeling like a miner with black lung

oh the joys of a hangover
by a Mack truck you have been run over
daylight hurts the back of the eyes
every little noise is a big surprise

every hair follicle screaming ouch
pasted by a sweaty T-shirt to the couch
oh God, I swear, never again
from drugs and alcohol I will abstain

until the next time

the devil said I was having fun
if I stick to only beer, wine, vodka, rum
put on a limit to just three or four
remember the oath that I swore

will I ever tire of being sick and tired
of really being sick and tired
what shall I call my bottom
is my problem that uncommon

they say don’t ever forget that last drunk
don’t worry about how low you have sunk
just keep coming back is all they implore
the rewards will be more than you could ever ask for

choices, choices and choices
just listen to the sober voices
learn to live one day at a time
off that couch you will be able to climb

and pray that there will be no next time

The Veil Of Order

.

“In a work of art,

chaos must shimmer

through the veil

of order.”

.

~ Novalis

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

shake

all around

like Elvis did

was banned in Boston

shimmy                              (Shimmy ko ko bop)
.   .   .   .   .   .   .   .     Little Anthony and the Imperials – – 1959

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

green fields turn to orange

again Nature recycles

as pumpkin time nears

.

Poem:

.

ghost, goblins, ghouls, zombies
tis the season of the undead
movies based on scary stories
beware of the body without a head

door to door on all hallows’ eve
about the religious significance a little naive
the big kids would trick or treat
we knew everyone up and down the street

bed sheets for costumes, one size fits all
competing to get the biggest haul
candy and enough apples to make a pie
so much sugar I could really fly

times change, much trust has been lost
could we bring back the reason at any cost

Allhallowtide, Hallowtide, Allsaintstide, or the Hallowmas season,
is the triduum encompassing the Western Christian observances
of All Saints’ Eve (Halloween), All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and
All Souls’ Day, which last from 31 October to 2 November annually.
