Roadwork

.

“Poets,

like fighters,

both reap

the benefits

of roadwork.”

read

some fiction

even a newspaper

develop your own thinking

write

.

Haiku:

.

groundhogs hibernate

sun says winter for six weeks

equinox knows time

Poem:

.

insecurity leads to jealousy
thinking only about me, me, me
what if I lose the thing I love
was it a push or was it a shove

a healthy love thinks of others
the best examples are our mothers
the things we love have a life of their own
God’s inevitable we cannot postpone

love is the emotion of completeness
the feeling that life is a satisfying sweetness
is it the Creators design that we have a soulmate
why do some souls struggle until it’s too late

life and love are all about change
time is the only thing we cannot exchange
make change easy to swallow, call it growth
and the goal to reach is called an oath

don’t be jealous, be grateful
only the selfish are unfaithful
love today, don’t worry about tomorrow
just let your heart radiate a glorious glow

If You Don’t Read

.

“Maybe you’re
one of those people
who writes poems,
but rarely reads them.
Let me put this as
delicately as I can:
If you don’t read,
your writing is going
to suck.”

together

we stand

voices in harmony

our cause in agreement

united

.

Haiku:

.

fog greets the morning

condensation shrouds windows

world a white blur

.

Poem:

.

who or what is the best teacher
mother, father, guru, preacher
does the experience have to be yours
does everything hide behind locked doors

what sparks a child’s interest in learning
is intelligence connected to yearning
will television replace common sense
can artificial intelligence teach self defense

government wants to dumb everyone down
programmed parents just wanna be clowns
the rich get richer, the poor just succumb
elderly try to survive on a fixed income

greed, avarice and jealousy the political ideals
constitution rewritten by a court of appeals
what ever happened to cursive and civics
can the world be cured by metaphysics

pray, as we see the world population increase
try to do your part to  teach world peace
smile
