Self

.

“Loneliness is

the poverty of self;

solitude is

the richness of self.”

~ May Sarton

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.

.

change
move on
do it twice
try to or else
switch

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.
springs chilly drizzle
sky covered by low gray clouds 
first robin appears
.

Poem:
.

quarter of a century in recovery
every day a new day of discovery
learning to accept all of life’s changes
enjoying the chance to be outrageous

I pray every day to walk the walk
sad are those who just talk the talk
it is easy to accept when God is in control
body, mind and soul He makes us whole

sobriety promises us many things
a chance to unravel the heart strings
a new freedom from past regrets
friends who we can count as assets

an attitude that includes no fears
a desire to be of help to our peers
happy, happy, happy for others
a choice to be part of a band of brothers

knowledge of feelings that keeps expanding
finding a God of our understanding
a kindness we are glad to  repay
living this life no other way

The Mind

.

“Whatever

the mind

can conceive

and believe,

it can achieve.”

.

~ Napoleon Hill

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

car

trade in

brand name loyalty

style versus accessories function

transportation

.

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

.

fake crocodile tears

sympathy for a hurt pride

empathy deserved

.

Poem:

.

if it is not love, it is the trees
a fascination with the birds and the bees
poetry tells stories and speaks emotions
living life by going through the motions

love is learning to see with the heart
knowing that everyone has a part
the very first step is sharing kindness
common interests will soon lead to fondness

today I’ll love my favorite squeeze
a thankful heart contented to please
together we’ll enjoy the beach and some flowers
going home to watch reruns of Fawlty Towers

there for each other as life does change
ignoring quirky habits others may think strange
happy are they who share love and nature
never to argue with the great Creator

love unconditionally, be a blessing
wear a big smile, it will keep them guessing
