Trifles

.

“Trifles make

perfection,

and perfection

is no trifle.”

~ Michelangelo

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable

.

plain

most clean

no foul dirt

as God made it

pure

St Valentines Day
his unconditional love
a channel for God

you too can be His channel
just love without a limit

.

Poem:

.

failed, misplaced, skipped, omitted, lost
you can’t retrieve the past at any cost
don’t blame the memory for getting old
it is mostly the lies that we have been told

hindsight tells me that I missed my prime
either misused or squandered most of my time
no use crying over all of the spilled milk
a sows ear can’t be made into a purse of silk

forget the past, let the hair down, have some fun
soak up the sun, even if the work is not done
time is an element that man will not conquer
it’s our perception what makes time a monster

today, let time manage it’s own image
are you alive ?,
just thank God for that privilege

My Soul, My Senses

.

“Like poetry,

in times of intense emotion

the image returns to me.

Like poetry, it stroked

my soul and, by turns,

lulled and stoked my senses.”

.

― Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

feeling

sixth sense

reaction to events

no need to touch

emotional

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

listening to silence

God speaking

love and devotion

Poem:

.

time to duck into fantasyland
what to do when reality sucks
reality, where everything fun has been banned
and even the the worst will cost you big bucks

let’s all go down the hole and meet the Mad Hatter
a place where there are no lines of race or creed
a land where politically correct doesn’t matter
where victories are won and no one has to bleed

then there are the delightful perks
the chocolate ice cream has no calories
lose weight by thinking about what works
toys run forever, no need for batteries

no greed eliminates the need for police or politics
everyone you meet wears a smile on their face
rewards for everyone with no need to do tricks
taking only what you need, remembering God’s grace

awakened by the boombox thats a mile away
oh what can I do, just hope and pray
