Still Shining

.

.

“Be still,
sad heart!
and cease repining;
Behind the clouds
is the sun
still shining”

.

.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Elfie:   (Cinquain)

.

never

or forever

and a day

events in God’s time

now

.

Haiku:

.

planet earth rotates

some need light others the dark

night and day tells time

.

Poem:

.

listen to the happy earth
breezes push gentle waves
flowers promise another rebirth
a woodpecker the tree engraves

with an open mind and a willing heart
allow the senses too be overwhelmed
have much gratitude for natures art
to Her beauty we’ve become accustomed

thunder rolls over distant hills
life sustaining rain soaks the ground
humble reflections causing chills
words a picture cannot expound

life exists as a Higher Power wills
the total picture designed to astound

Just the Ash

.

Poetry is just

the evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is

just the ash.”

.

~ Leonard Cohen

Elfje (Cinquain)

.

wet

the grass

does not burn

pray for more rain

drought

.

HAIKU:

.

nature accepts change

seasons become important

call them what you may

.

Poem

.

the crow  of premonition

perched on the scarecrows head

sparking the farmers intuition

foreboding a feeling of dread

.

is it a truth or an old wives tale

does the Great Creator have a sense of humor

what is it with the salt on his tail

can the bird really tell the future

.

a creature of opportunity

he loves to go for the bling

and lives with a reputation of ambiguity

with a signature caw he does not sing

.

Jim Crow reigned in the South

God, please make us all color blind

for those who didn’t read it was word of mouth

apparently bird brained is the state of mankind

.

the humble rarely have to eat crow

the braggart is the crowing chicken

he knows best who can go very slow

why worry . . .  the future is hidden
