In Flowers

.

“The

earth

laughs

in flowers.”

.

~  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

luminous

shadowy light

deep inner glow

filmy but subtly translucent

opalescent

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

loved to distraction

awful close to smothering

you cannot own them

too jealous is a sickness

room to breathe does much better

.

Poem:

.

act your age
I don’t know how
I’ve never been this age before
am I supposed to act like a bore

it is not an act, I think I am real
I know I am not a very big deal
I’m just glad to be little old me
a soul that is happy, joyous and free

getting old has not been fun
that and too many things left undone
will the circus ever come back to town
do you have to grow up if you are a clown

in the beginning the sun will rise
all of nature will look to the skies
when all is done the sun will set
each day a deadly game of roulette

today I’ll act the way I want to act
regardless of my age, and that is a fact

Never Serious

.

“Art is the only

serious thing

in the world.

And the artist is

the only person who

is never serious.”

.

~ Oscar Wilde

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

Dali

abstract realism

very small characters

on very large canvas

surrealism          ..    ..    ,,   ,,   ,,   ,,    (seriously ? ? ?)

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

forever jealous

never content with his own

wanted others things

.

Poem:

.

disorder is the work of an evil spirit
ugly has no bounds or limit
souls that believe they have something to prove
statues and memorials they want to remove

destroying a government is anarchy
believing there is no need for a moral code, insanity
yet the majority are afraid of the minority
defund the police, let’s give evil the authority

the press divides when they take sides
a few wealthy trying to push the tides
there is no need to apologize
peace allows everyone to share the prize

let’s use that energy to make an improvement
let the teaching of history define our movement
let God be the definition of pure order
maybe tomorrow, within our border
