Simplicity

.

“Simplicity in character,

in manners, in style;

in all things

the supreme excellence

is simplicity.

.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

destiny

unknown fate

what goes around

only God knows when

karma

.

Haiku:

.

hummingbird zooms by

natures flying miracle

flowers favorite

.

Poem:

.

the window framed by bougainvillea
beauty not wasted on the old man
his mind no longer good for trivia
but to see and appreciate he still can

memories are now just the good feelings
faces and places lost in a cloud of vagueness
much to late to search for life’s meanings
his whole world now but a small oasis

some longtimers glad to wear a smile
others scowl and are mad at the world
the happy with their God can reconcile
the mean live with a heart that is gnarled

tempt the fates, make survival your choice
the wise know that life is an attitude
mean and ugly will never have a chance to rejoice
the sagacious enjoy the spirit of gratitude

look in the mirror, what have you become
elect to be happy and good,
always choose the right rule of thumb

Go On Trying

.

“Every poem I write

falls short

in some important way.

But I go on trying

to write

the one that won’t. ”

.

― Dorianne Laux

Elfje:

.

flowers
attract butterflies
bees that sting
bugs wanting free lunch
hummingbirds that do not sing
magical

.

Haiku:

.

essence of being
natures miracle at work
air that supports life

.

Poem:

.

waking to a  beautiful morn
rejuvenated during the restful night
sunshine bright and warm
the sky resplendent at first light

another day to do God’s will
steward of nature, helper to others
the sun reflected in the flowering daffodil
dew drops sprinkled by the fairy godmother

love begins with a kindness
God, Nature, others and self
creating families that are priceless
all things protected by the garden elf

is there a rhyme , a reason for the season
what really transpired in the garden of Eden
