Just One Person

.

“The purpose of poetry

is to remind us /

how difficult it is

to remain

just one person…”

― Czesław Miłosz

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

dexterous

many hats

will try anything

with multi faceted personality

confused

.

Haiku:

.

morning chill brings fog

fall colors portend winter

mother natures sleep

.

Poem:

.

The mind is the key
To a Higher Power I plea

I am but a steward of theUni-verse
Deigned not to do the perverse

Mother nature to protect
Nor my body to neglect

Acknowledging that the soul dwells
beautifully adorned in light pastels

In the heart of all who pray
For however long or short their stay

The mind is the enigma
Choices are what grow the stigma

The mind must humbly respect
So that the body and soul will reflect

A life that could not be any greater
A life that is worthy of the Creator

Just One Person

.

“The purpose of poetry is to remind us

how difficult it is to remain

just one person,

for our house is open,

there are no keys in the doors,

and invisible guests come in and out

at will.”

.

~ Czesław Miłosz

.

Elfje:

.

quietly

my mother

and my father

come into my mind

reminders

.

Haiku:

.

past influences

people, places, images

nature of the mind

.

Poem:

.

the only constant is change

.

he became a she
which way was he born
does the soul have to agree
is it incest or porn

was it nature
or was it nurture
which organ becomes the larger
or can we call it a merger

is it all about the dress
is the name change required
is the limp wrist an excess
should the effort be admired

Oy gevalt ! now the bathroom is in question
is there a law to be made about self expression

.

ME and the Boss

.

our apologies to the Shakespearian sonnet . . .

Oy gevalt : oh, violence! used to express shock or amazement
