What Am I Saying

.

“I am so clever

that sometimes

I don’t understand

a single word

of what I am saying.”

.

~  Oscar Wilde

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

clever

so smart

mentally quick, resourceful

showing inventiveness and skill

ingenious

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

it has stopped raining

sunny skies

humidity builds

.

Poem:

.

ha, ha, ha
laughing is a positive
wa, wa, wa
crying is a negative

most souls live somewhere in the middle
no crying, no laughing, no playing the fiddle
the fortunate live life on the positive side
never forgetting when they have cried

shed a crocodile tear for the ignorant
guard your ego with motivations innocent
laugh at the pompous clowns know as politicians
sympathize with the many who suffer untreated addictions

the world will go on with or without us
even the best are just another bozo on the bus
laughing with but not at others
we are all siblings from different mothers

ha, ha, ha
laughing is contagious
wa, wa, wa
crying is courageous

Or

“I do not know

which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or

the beauty of innuendos

The blackbird whistling

Or

just after.”

~ Wallace Stevens

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

either

which one

choices that confound

so many to choose from

or

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

stupid cannot learn

ignorant has yet to learn

do we have a choice ? ? ?

.

Poem:

.

we have a choice
to be mean or kind
signaled by a tone of voice
habits which spring to mind

when angered do we see red
when kind do we hear the angels sing
can we see inside of our head
do we get another life with the golden ring

should the stupid carry a flag
are humans on the decline
does love carry a price tag
when will life have to resign

choices, democracy or socialism
there is no compromise,
since neither leads to altruism
will this be man’s demise

will there be one soul left who will know the outcome
why worry, why save, go ahead and eat the last piece of pie
when all else fails, just choose not to be glum
even during daytime there are stars in the sky

be the optimist, be kind
have faith, a loving Creator made this His ultimate design.
