Understand

.

“One can not

understand language

because language cannot

understand itself;

does not want to

understand”

.

~  Novalis

words
hidden meanings
innuendo and hyperbole
did I say that
language

.

Haiku:

.

looking out window
spring appears so inviting
sudden snow shower

.

Poem:

.

the old man mumbled on
understanding that the know it alls
were not even paying attention
he might as well been talking to the walls

the young egos want to be important
unaware that there is nothing new under the sun
God incidents with his will accordant
acknowledging His humor invented the pun

before the lesson was finished,
he stopped, smiled, shook his head
was his era the last good vintage
their training received behind the woodshed

the only thing new are the different weapons
the same fear, jealousy, greed, ignorance
the world run by a bunch of sleazy felons
the masses operating on total indifference

some things and time just change faces
portraits lining the board room walls
food, clothing and shelter to cover the masses
lobbyist pulling the strings on their political dolls

the sentiments are hundreds of years old
so what’s the use of complaining
just do as you have been told
and to the elderly be entertaining

what to do but to laugh and love
dodge the bullets and pay the taxes
lots of prayers to a Power above
and blame everything else on the circumstances

Riches

.

“I have

no riches

but my thoughts,

Yet these are

wealth enough

for me”

.

~ Sara Teasdale

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

memories

emotions shared

time spent together

common bonds, mutual pleasures

riches

.

Haiku:

.

winter hot, spring cold

natures rhythm run amuck

unseasonable

.

Poem:

.

what stirs the emotions
fluffy white clouds against an azure blue sky
the birds and the bees singing and buzzing
should I laugh or should I cry

do hearts have feelings
is it sad or am I happy
tears of remorse, tears of joy
must the words always be sappy

events accompanied by somesthesia
visible, audible, aromatic or tactile
vivid memories and thoughts subliminal
will they continue when we become senile

are feelings sensual or are they intuitive
are passions the product of nurtured or nature
the sick shut down the emotional stream
no longer human, a thoughtless cold creature

be moved, be human, enjoy God’s creations
His greatest works are emotionally inspiring
