It Found Me

.

“I wasn’t meant

for reality,

but life came

and found me.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

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

frost

cold rime

creek to lake

all things that froze

ice

.

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

.

winter cold persist

glad to see daylight growing

spring stands in the wings

.

Poem:

.

magnolia blossoms aroma wafted above
young hearts below dreaming of love
springs chilly rain waters tomorrows hope
urges so strong that make some want to elope

generation after generation, God’s design
who can argue that it is not divine
fill your dreams with all you can imagine
be ready to accept whatever may happen

the quiet mind knows serene
renew ancient faith as did St. Augustine
with this life there is not a guarantee
it will be or it was meant not to be             (said Shakespeare)

stay young and always dream of love
for love will bring blessings from above

In Deeds

.

“I am

a poet

in deeds-

-not often

in words.”

.

~ Ian Fleming

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

think

of others

outside the box

a poet in deeds

opine

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

summers muggy heat

oppressive

lake’s spring water cools

.

Poem:

.

the ego said yes
the heart said what a mess
the answer will be a guess
everyone will feel the stress

what do we know of a relationship
does the heart have to skip
does it require a courtship
can one be happy with a back flip

thank God we are all very unique
even those who speak with tongue in cheek
there is a mate for the least passionate geek
to find a friend all one must do is seek

of most importance is to be honest
make it better, try being modest
friendships and relationships are never a contest
kind are those who keep a friendship the longest
