Well-timed Silence

.

“Well-timed

silence

hath more

eloquence

than speech.”

.

~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

calm

no noise

a soft hush

a place to sit

still

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

God speaks in silence

meditate

listen to His word

.

Poem:

.

another lost moment in time
my ego became misplaced in the rhyme
a pregnant pause is not a well timed silence
wise are those who use God for guidance

why worry, most things forgotten don’t matter
if necessary God will put it on your platter
remember to sort your wants from your needs
even mustard comes from the smallest seeds

time spent wisely is usually with others
problems solved by a band of brothers
most important is to show up when promised
usually remembered when one is honest

today, take the time to do something nice
always done when following your own advice

In Deeds

.

“I am

a poet

in deeds-

-not often

in words.”

.

~ Ian Fleming

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

think

of others

outside the box

a poet in deeds

opine

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

summers muggy heat

oppressive

lake’s spring water cools

.

Poem:

.

the ego said yes
the heart said what a mess
the answer will be a guess
everyone will feel the stress

what do we know of a relationship
does the heart have to skip
does it require a courtship
can one be happy with a back flip

thank God we are all very unique
even those who speak with tongue in cheek
there is a mate for the least passionate geek
to find a friend all one must do is seek

of most importance is to be honest
make it better, try being modest
friendships and relationships are never a contest
kind are those who keep a friendship the longest
