Never Grow Old

.

“Youth is happy

because it has the

capacity to see beauty.

Anyone who keeps the

ability to see beauty

never grows old.”

.

~ Franz Kafka

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

beauty

not ugly

the heart sings

eye of the beholder

splendor

.

Haiku:

.

hot summer hangs on

crops not harvested soon die

leaves begin to turn

.

Poem:

When you’re dead you’re dead.

.

the seed, from whence it all began
the Great Provider supplied the plan
which came first the chicken or the egg
can you ever be too proud to beg

what is the real meaning of life
is it true that we create our own strife
do the souls of dead bodies need a place to go
is everyone in heaven named jane doe or joe blow

the philosophers don’t know the answers
logic moving about like the tap dancers
when they don’t even know if the question is right
putting the mind into a knot that is pulled real tight

humans are hell bent on self destruction
blindly following religious instruction
who knows, who cares, let the mind wander
if you have a life there is no need to ponder

enjoy the moment, this too shall pass
the destination is the same, tourist or first class

A Meteor

.

“A poem

is a

meteor.”

.

~ Wallace Stevens

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

vaporize

or explode

into earth’s atmosphere

God’s nightly fireworks display

meteor

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

happiness expressed

joyful heart

silent gratitude

.

Poem:

.

there is this place I call never-the-less
to all of my friends I give free access
the place is filled with excuses galore
who could wish for anything more

the place is a series of rooms, nooks and crannies
there is an cool pond to keep fire from the fannies
there is a looking glass that can see future trouble
it has yet to learn how to pick the daily double

make yourself fit using the many trick mirrors
there are free warm hugs when you get the shivers
the ceiling is made from the trees of knowledge and life
a picture of Heavens peace when man gives up strife

come visit, we’ll have lunch and go exploring
we’ll make a plan for man his faith restoring
regardless, at any rate, we can all be the critic
all the same, in any event, I’ll be there in spirit

never-the-less, we can all do it anyhow, God willing
never-the-less, we’ll never do it anyway, fates fulfilling
