No Other Rule

.

“Write

what you like;

there is no

other rule.”

.

~ O. Henry

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

glee

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

beautiful sky

sun and mist

rainbows everywhere

Poem:

.

looking, lost, trying to find fantasyland
this ugly, smelly reality I cannot stand
transport me to a faraway zone
let me hide by using a clone

let’s create a new space and call it Love
built with the blessings received from above
air and noise pollution may not exist
the sky above always rainbow kissed

soft melodies provided by the birds and the bees
herbal aromas wafting about on a fresh breeze
every trail and path lined with a display floral
the horizon represented by a bucolic mural

a sirens scream, a grieving mothers wail
back to earth, dreams wasted to no avail
a bang and a thud, everything used and abused
only the crazy from this world are excused

to cope, one must adjust the altitude
work hard at keeping a good attitude
let reality suck, if it must
let go, relax, in God you must trust

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
