Not Knowing

.

“Though I play at

the edges of knowing,

truly I know our part

is not knowing,

but looking, and touching,

and loving”

.

― Mary Oliver

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

misplaced

can’t find

lost in space

how important is it

squandered

.

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

.

for crying out loud

how upset can you make me

will you please stop it

.

Poem:

.

Dreams are who you want to be
Who you are is in your heart
the happiest soul possesses a hidden beauty
your willingness to be you will set you apart

take pride in whatever you do
even doing nothing takes a bit of talent
don’t be a person that one can see through
just choose to be a spirit that is gallant

it is no sin to reinvent yourself
especially when you go from bad to good
a person not afraid to come down off of the shelf
avoid the excuses to have, could, would and should

let today be your day to really shine
no need to wait for the stars to align

A Few Reasonable Words


“One ought,

every day at least,

to hear a little song,

read a good poem,

see a fine picture,

and, if it were possible,

to speak a few

reasonable words.”

.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

.

 

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

known

to be

as a fact

by one and all

legendary

.

Haiku:

.

cold water pipe sweats

heat and humidity rise

summer has arrived

.

Poem:

.

silly time, why grow up
smile, chuckle, giggle, laugh
gratitude does not need a measuring cup
sorrow will cut your life in half

love will come when your singing in the rain
kindness grows when you share your happiness
many a joy comes from riding a choo-choo train
hitting the nerve on your humerus is funniness

drugs and alcohol contribute to dysphoria
gratitude can be the cause of euphoria
over the top fear brings about hysteria
the miracles survive the sanatoria

reasonable words convey love, kindness and joy
everyone knows a picture is worth a thousand words
hello in Portuguese is the word ahoy
cheating and lying is definitely for the birds
.
life will go on, but not in this poem
all future comments will be spoken

.

ME and the Boss.
