“Life’s

too short.

Start

with Dessert!”

start

first course

but who counts

glad to be here

end

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

planning tomorrow

trying not to make God laugh

learning the lesson

lucky is being prepared

to meet opportunity

.

Poem:

.

dreaming of things that will never be
people, places and riches that I will never see
positions of power that I could never achieve
feats of glory that no one would ever believe

always content to just be little old me
enjoying a life that is simple, carefree
almost on the verge of being complacent
doing my best to try everyone’s patience

if the questions wrong there is no answer
like why is hate such a ruinous cancer
the right question is who do you love
the answer should be everyone and God above

deliberately avoiding any philosophy
friends are those who share in honesty
enjoying the Creators grand design
sunrise, sunset, every one a beautiful shrine

both young and old go forth to seek peace
may your love of mankind never cease

Get Drunk

.
“One should always be drunk.

That’s all that matters…

But with what?

With wine, with poetry,

or with virtue,

as you chose.

But get drunk.”

.

~ Charles Baudelaire

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

hesitate

pregnant pause

take your time

maybe yes, maybe no

procrastination

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

admitted the crime

ought to be a civil law

just laughed at the judge

 

people take themselves serious

can’t put a price on feelings

.

Poem:

.

the opposite of bad is good
the place where most heroes stood

a life lived with conscientious integrity
never a question about the morality
a head held high with dignity

a smile, a kind word, always exuding goodness
every decision and action guided by virtuousness
promises made, promises kept, trustworthiness
to a Higher Power given his righteousness

every days effort completed with propriety
simple, sincere and transparent honesty
every soul treated with decency

accolades and cudos won with merit
traits that all of our sons should inherit
