Elevate The Soul

.

β€œTo elevate

the soul,


poetry


is necessary.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

soul

you are

from the mind

what’s in your heart

life

.

Lune: REVERSED 3-5-3

.

poetry

is necessary

to live

.

Poem:

.

it is nine AM and the spam callers have started
intruding into my life that has been uncharted
empathy, everyone has to make a living
sympathy, it is my part to be forgiving

enjoying chaos, loving the tempest in the tea cup
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
the backward brain cannot make up its mind
to God we are all just one of a kind

time will move on, with or without me
a drifting raft in the middle of a large sea
envious of those who own a motor
debating my impact as a one in a million voter

is there a subliminal meaning to any of this drivel
something to do with my head being mounted on a swivel
rumbling, mumbling, stumbling, through one day at a time
can perverse thinking be a punishable crime

pardon me but I am just having some fun
trying not to get caught while being on the run

A Passionate Pursuit

.

β€œI have

defined poetry

as a ‘passionate

pursuit of

the Real.”

.
Czeslaw Milosz

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

real
as pure
just as is
not at all false
true

.

Lune: 3,5,3 syllables ( In Reverse, Lune should be 5,3,5 )

.

passionate
most intense feeling
heart ablaze

.

Poem:

.

mystical, magical, an awesome miracle
for those in recovery it is empirical
in life there are no mere coincidences
there are only fortuitous God incidents

born with a brain on backwards
most grew up to become bad actors
the on / off switch definitely broken
surely quite unique but still a token

for those who never quite fit in
keep coming back was a good place to begin
a warm welcome which gave many goose bumps
a fellowship using a Good Orderly Direction

a Higher Power by any name is acceptable
most of the miracles are barely perceptible
a backward brain does not mean that they are insane
the road to recovery is becoming humane

miracles are most often a change in attitude
many learn the joy of having gratitude
abstinence gives one a new life to be what you want to be
a soul who is happy, joyous and free
