The Final Achievement

.

“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable
.
eased
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me
pleased
.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
.
please pay the piper
compensate
donate to the cause

Poem:
.

azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun

cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.

Makes Me Dream

.

“For my part

I know nothing

with any certainty,

but the sight

of the stars

makes me dream.”

.

~  Vincent Van Gogh

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

stargaze

mind unfettered

thoughts of fantasy

hopes and wishes made

daydreams

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

revenge being sought

ugly mind

ego puncturing

.

Poem:

.

can you believe the noise of the universe
man’s interference only making it worse
short wave, long wave, the queens wave
man has just crawled out of his cave

reality is faced with a population explosion
global warming is creating an implosion
crocodile tears for the next generation
hope they can find a cure for stagflation

maybe they will just invent another word
how many flavors can they add to bean curd
the future is a question without an answer
history is the story of the gandy dancer

today is the future and history rolled into one
ignore the questions and go have some fun
