No Interpreter Needed

.

“Great poetry

needs no interpreter

other than a

responsive heart.”

.

― Helen Keller

Elfje:

.

feelings

emotionally charged

accepting what comes

life on life’s terms   (Life on God’s terms)

human

.

Haiku:

.

the shores sandy dunes

pushed by the oceans currents

summer vacation

.

Poem:

.

some say the best poems extol the virtues of love

while soaring above on the wings of a dove

stories about feelings, fears and life

worries about things that cause angst and strife

.

every day the feelings are different

those without mothers become the ignorant

books with stories teach us how to feel

family and friends explain that which is real

.

some seek to alter the mood so they need not think

can’t figure out why when they lie to the shrink

sad are those whose brains are on a perpetual swing

ups and downs caused by the brains short circuit wiring

.

lucky are those whose friends have feelings that are mutual

the paranoid, the loner are not that unusual

will man ever be able to fix the brain

can there be a time when no one will be insane

.

until medicine finds the cure

self education will be the basic tool

learning to live the Golden Rule

hope’s of growing up and becoming mature

A Way With Language

.

“Deep feeling

doesn’t make

for good poetry.

A way with language

would be a bit

of help.”

.

~ Thom Gunn

Elfje:

.

feel

sad, glad

write the words

does it make sense

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

bugs ate the blossoms

nature cares for every one

pests need to eat too

.

Poem:

.

happiness is a poem

feelings left open

stories to be told

opinions uncontrolled

.

from a to zed

the living and the dead

words come alive

ideas on overdrive

.

enjoy the effort

call it desert

and when it’s done

concede to fun

.

forever butterflies

smelly teas roses

affections displayed

hearts accolade

.

emotions showing

senses growing

read and write

connoisseurs delight

.

for good poetry

it was a way with language.
