The Romantic Kitchen

 

.

“She’s always looking

for poetry and passion

and sensitivity,

the whole Romantic kitchen.

I live on a rather simpler diet.

Prose and pudding?”

gifts

genetically predisposed

nurture versus nature

physical, mental, emotional, spiritual

inherited

.

Haiku:

.

icy wind chills bones

onion snow covers the ground

spring is put on hold

Poem:

.

How do you know when you’re growing old
can you become to tired to think
from nose to toes always cold
so crazy there’s no need to call the shrink

How do you know when you’re growing old
remember tenth grade, can’t remember lunch
or enjoying to ignore what you’re being told
the old arteries that are now made of clunch

How do you know when you’re growing old
the curmudgeon quietly chuckles with glee
more than one tooth filed with gold
odor blind to self,  to others he smells like pee

How do you know when your growing old
the younger generation thinks you know nothing
a danger to self and others you are told
you live with memories of things worth loving

How do you know when you are growing old
Beats me,
but I’ll let you know when I get there

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.
