Emotion Is

“Emotion

is the

poetry

of life.”

.
Marty Rubin

Elfje:

.

feel
no touch
from the gut
what you may think
sense

.

Senryu: 5,7,5 syllables people and their emotions as a subject

.

gentle emotion
no laugh, no cry, just happy
the best in between

.

Poem:

.

the struggle was in his mind
was he better off dead or alive
to being hopeless he was resigned
it took too much just to survive

drugs and alcohol were a quick fix
too soon the terrible addiction took over
the mind started to play more insidious tricks
peace was an eternal sleep under a bed of clover

he woke up frozen to the ground
could not remember when the binge began
he so wanted his life to turn around
directions were needed to give him a plan

he found hope among a group of drunks
they gave him a book that had a Doctors opinion
it had twelve steps to get him out of the dumps
to a Higher Power he became a loyal minion

four scores plus he continues to thrive
the Group Of Drunks is now his sponsor
a soul at peace, just glad to be alive
to his personal God he gives all honor

The Influence

.

“Only the very

weak-minded

refuse to be

influenced by

literature and

poetry.”

.

~ Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable
.
poem
a rhyme
words that sing
what the muse felt
verse
.
Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
.
poet laureate
muse supreme
the greatest word smith
.

Poem:
.

let the smile be your umbrella
lucky are those who can sing acapella
music and laughter, a joy to be alive
a light heart will make the soul thrive

the best act is to be responsible
followed by being accountable
always choosing to do the next right thing
also being willing to change everything

the smart are those with a brain that is flexible
even luckier are those who understand technical
a Higher Power to guide ones thinking
forever avoiding the attitude that is stinking

may all of your dreams be in technicolor
earning the accolade of worlds best lover
