Some Day

.

“Some day

you will be

old enough

to start reading

fairy tales again.”

.

~ C. S. Lewis

hiccup

rough bump

unplanned side trip

off the straight course

setback

beautiful image

Creator’s best camouflage

colors few can see

.

Poem:

.

quiet the noisy mind
try to become a member of human kind
ignore the noises made by the resident rodent
running on a squeaky wheel every moment

forget the echoes of people putting you down
you look like a scary sad sack clown
you’re nothing but a useless bum
slimy and smelly like pond scum

hear it often enough and you start to believe
you have become your mother-in-laws pet peeve
negativity lives in that perverted warped brain
lucid times when you think you’re going insane

thinking contorted by mind altering drugs
itchy, crawlies caused by giant bed bugs
been there, done that, wear the tie dyed shirt
the lucky become a spiritual convert

learn to think of others, not just yourself
guidance from above leads to healthy self-help
praying to your God with a contrite heart
this is always a good way to start

Riches

.

“I have

no riches

but my thoughts,

Yet these are

wealth enough

for me”

.

~ Sara Teasdale

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

memories

emotions shared

time spent together

common bonds, mutual pleasures

riches

.

Haiku:

.

winter hot, spring cold

natures rhythm run amuck

unseasonable

.

Poem:

.

what stirs the emotions
fluffy white clouds against an azure blue sky
the birds and the bees singing and buzzing
should I laugh or should I cry

do hearts have feelings
is it sad or am I happy
tears of remorse, tears of joy
must the words always be sappy

events accompanied by somesthesia
visible, audible, aromatic or tactile
vivid memories and thoughts subliminal
will they continue when we become senile

are feelings sensual or are they intuitive
are passions the product of nurtured or nature
the sick shut down the emotional stream
no longer human, a thoughtless cold creature

be moved, be human, enjoy God’s creations
His greatest works are emotionally inspiring
