The Use Of Words

.

“One great

use of words

is to hide

our thoughts.”

.

~ Voltaire

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

thoughts

mental images

actions and reactions

things I might do

visions

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

what I am saying

may not be what I’m thinking

if you only knew

beating around the big bush

intentionally deceived

.

Poem:

.

living a dream
merrily rowing upstream
living a fairytale
forever chasing the holy grail

perpetually stalking illusions
thinking about not growing old
“whatever” is my cup of tea
maybe it will be filled with fool’s gold

reality check
the spaceship has landed
could we be a smaller speck
let your imagination be expanded

knowing that our lives are but a blip in time
understanding that even the powerful made a very small dent
before they know it most have passed their prime
for some each day is one entire event

for the older souls time is but a blur
is evolution the path of least resistance
can or will a world peace ever occur
will there ever be a meaning to our existence

firstly, are we asking the right question
will there ever be a lasting impression
seeking the answers propels us forward
what is , is what a Higher Power has ordered

Into The Abyss

.

.

“He drove his mind

into the abyss

where poetry

is written.”

.

― George Orwell

.

.

.

Elfje:

.

mind

over matter

seeing is believing

illusions and skulduggery abound

mysticism

.

Haiku

.

rivers to oceans

water the essence of life

naming the seasons

.

Poem:

.

memories lost, memories rekindled
long timers share their stories from hell
their old faces scarred and wrinkled
of wedded bliss and good times they tell

moments of heroic courage and valor
fox hole prayers hoping to survive
the countries flag their favorite color
what the world was like in forty-five

the troops their  mighty numbers dwindl
some battles only remembered on library pages
their step and cadence no longer nimble
their cause and effort are one for the ages

how soon the next generation conveniently forgets
self consumed by their technological advances
will they eventually suffer agonizing regrets
indifference slowly diminishes their chances

the ego, the super ego, the id, debated
why does man want to destroy humanity
mementos and thoughts of the past desecrated
what will ever end this absurd insanity

don’t be the lemming, be the voice
when the swamp becomes putrid, pull the plug
hope and faith that there will be a time to rejoice
when all men will be greeted by a loving hug

history is know to repeat
can the cycle be broken
will Satan suffer defeat
can peace be the only language spoken

only time will tell
