Tales To Spin

.

“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”

.

― Shel Silverstein

.

Elfje:

.

imagination

contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed

tales

.

Haiku:

.

what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place

.

Poem:

.

let go or be pulled along

replace it with something better

does every life need a theme song

are we marked with a scarlet letter

.

seeking positive reinforcement

family and friends the preferred source

proud to receive a personal endorsement

stepping stones to  life’s best course

.

the devil dines on the negative

set your table with the bright optimistic

the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited

allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic

.

focused on the here and now

have faith, you do know how.

.

Every Word

.

.

“Every word

was once

a poem.”

.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

.

Elfje

.

Every

Thought was

Once a poem

Before there were words

Written

.

Haiku:

.

sensual overload

nature explodes in the spring

words fail to describe

.

Poem:

.

love, life, history, mystery

poetic themes that include adultery

written to pique the imagination

another vague form of communication

.

happy to expand the vocabulary

singing like the proverbial canary

to some the words create the music

others hear only the elevator musak

.

few are those who hear the Universe in silence

most serious concerns for their mental imbalance

today we will let the word choose the poem

sound or meaning, exuberant or solemn

.

always the poem that never ends

lame excuses and false amends

form, meter, rhyme the words intend

doesn’t every poet just pretend.
