“How to

Write a Poem

Catch the air

Around the butterfly.”

.

blink

lightening bugs

warm summers night

caught  in a jar

memories

.

Haiku:

.

on butterfly wings

dreams and memories fly by

ethereal seasons

.

Poem:

.

the beautiful garden makes me think

how bright flowers can foster bright thoughts

fountains and feeders for the hummingbird to drink

the whole world dressed in day-glow pink

.

the brain is flooded with the aroma of blossom

beautiful butterflies pass through on wings of gossamer

above the blue sky is filled with clouds of cotton

the children’s favorite words are “totally awesome”

.

the calm breeze generates thoughts of a catnap

pleasant nothings to hang one’s hat on

the jasmine vine entwines, natures gift wrap

the unsuspecting lured in by the Venus fly trap

.

man is the only animal that sees color

meaning Nature designed all this beauty for us

the value is more than just a few sand dollar

the big lesson is: my ego just became smaller

.

there is a God and it is not me

Her Universe’s design is so complex

without Him my garden could not be

and best to remember, thank God it is free.

With A Dash

.

“Poetry is a

deal of joy

and

pain and wonder,

with a dash

of the dictionary.”

.

~Khalil Gibran

.

Elfje:

.

words

serious, humorous

chosen at random

a message comes alive

writing

.

Haiku:

.

jasmine blooms and blooms

aroma intoxicates

birds, bees, fine dining

.

Poem:

.

looking for the inane and silly

tired of being stodgy serious

bored with making sense really

my sign obviously is in Aquarius

.

always ready for a good belly laugh

I am definitely not the worlds critic

trying to crop life like a photograph

bored to death by the pure analytic

.

found the humor in some good friends

choosing only the ones who express joy

discovering that there are other dividends

people who are just the real mccoy

.

laugh with me, do not laugh  at me

I promise to do the same for you

let us share nothing but ecstatic glee

may we always remain tried and true.

.

Want to be my friend, make me laugh.

ME and the Boss
