Trop Moche

.

.

“Mon Dieu,

la vie

est par trop

moche.”

.
― Aldous Huxley

.


my friend, the life is so ugly

.

Elfje: Cinquain

.

unsightly

really grotesque

just physically repulsive

an appearance beyond horrendous

ugly

.

Lune: 3,5,3 syllables (Reversed)

.

windy day

tall trees bow their heads

birds fly low

.

Poem:

.

the imagination is stuck in the routine
the mind is fixated on the black jelly bean
it is and/or is it a bad habit to be lazy
especially for those who are certified crazy

from here the poem took over the writing
just another God incident sighting
the tenor enjoined happy, joyous and free
another beautiful day for everyone to see

gratitude for breathing some fresh air
finding it unnecessary to compare
simply happy to be me and alive
thank God He allowed me to survive

remembering that there is a message to carry
for the sick and suffering the purpose is primary
crazy and lazy can be replaced with good habits
easier than trying to learn the new mathematics

doing the will of a loving Higher Power
securing a room in His ivory tower
the poem said that it was time to finish
I knew when it started to talk in Yiddish

time for the imagination to go back to sleep
the left over words go back into the heap
if I take time to listen the writer will be back
no need to rely on the zodiac

time for the writer and I to rest
next time, as usual, we will try our best.

Philosophical

.

poetry is

“the most philosophical

of all writing”

whose object is

“truth…carried alive

into the heart by passion”.

.

~ William Wordsworth    (1770-1850)

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

urge

restless desire

an instinctive motive

natural disposition towards scratching

itch

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

follow the hearts lead

believe love

the best emotion

.

Poem:

.

for every philosophy that is true
there is a philosophy that is blue

if it doesn’t fit, create a new word
greek or latin base preferred

when is a debate not an argument
is being stupid a thought impairment

each philosophy ends in the same black hole
we are all unique as is every lump of coal

treat every day as a commencement
all souls have received the same life sentence

find a philosophy that you may call your own
one that the world would be glad to clone

seeking the will of a Higher Power
may lead you to the top of the ivory tower

be kind, be forgiving, practice unconditional love
this philosophy will bring blessings from above

be the best happy dance choreographer
and always be the good hearted philosopher
