Weightless Words

.

“How weightless

words are

when nothing

will do.”

.

~ Philip Levine, Breath
.

.

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

sorry

my mistake

doesn’t cut it

learn to make amends

repentant

.

Haiku:                (7-5-7 VARIATION)

.

tropical storms wreak havoc

too much water floods

man builds in the low area

.

Poem:

.

words  fail too many romantics
they worry too much about semantics

forget the talk, don’t tell me
let your actions and heart be free

show me that it’s not all about you
love is not about what you think is due

a two way street is an agreeable compromise
love is never about the value of the prize

love is a feeling that transcends thinking
mutual consent where everyone is winning

above race, beyond religion, unconditional
love and marriage are something traditional

love, forget the words, they are not needed
love is when the heart has truly conceded

Nothing To It

.

“There is nothing to writing.

All you do is sit down

at a typewriter

and bleed.”

.

~Ernest Hemingway

.

.

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

blood

deoxyribonucleic acid

red and blue

where we come from

lineage

.

.

Haiku:   5-7-5 (Traditional: Nature and seasonal references only.)

.

God’s song of silence

from here to there the wind blows

tides bring hope to shore

.

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

.

family is blood

love can expand the number

adopted members

.

Poem:

.

Huitain. French 8-liner with an ababbcbc rhyme scheme

.

the hum of Nature has gone
replaced by the engines roar

smog is something you can count on
graffiti and litter you cannot ignore

pollution is the only guarantee anymore
man will be the cause of his own demise

will the raven quoth nevermore
be wise, Nature will not give a reprise
