The Rhythmical Creation Of Beauty


“I would define,

in brief,

the poetry of words

as the rhythmical

creation of Beauty.”


~ Edgar Allan Poe



Elfje:   (Cinquain)



gentle sounds

pleasing gossamer dreams

still water runs deep





thunder lightening rain

God’s wonderful theater

life giving waters




I can see the setting with my minds eye
with my words I want you to see it too
use your imagination, let it fly
let us all take a trip to the emotional zoo

let us start with the family, we know them best
Dad doesn’t count, his emotions are hidden
question his feelings he would flunk this test
real men don’t cry; a tear, heaven forbidden

Mom’s usually have all of the passion
child bearing, child rearing stretches the sensibilities
following Dr. Spock or whoever is the current fashion
in the end, Mothers intuitions are the God given abilities

Siblings, a curse or a blessing
some are like Mom, some are like Dad
memories fueled by feelings worth expressing
the best times, the worst times we have ever had

neighbors and friends can fill the zoo
from cuddly koalas to to the always hungry lion
over the cuckoo’s nest some of them flew
personally they all made their own bed to lie in

paint the picture, yourself, family and others
what colors do their personalities represent
the vibrant peacock, the camouflaged laughing hyenas
use your mental imagery how many matches can you invent

see the picture
who is the sicker
can’t go to the zoo
without looking for you

ME and the Boss
