Never Grow Old

.

“Youth is happy

because it has the

capacity to see beauty.

Anyone who keeps the

ability to see beauty

never grows old.”

.

~ Franz Kafka

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

beauty

not ugly

the heart sings

eye of the beholder

splendor

.

Haiku:

.

hot summer hangs on

crops not harvested soon die

leaves begin to turn

.

Poem:

When you’re dead you’re dead.

.

the seed, from whence it all began
the Great Provider supplied the plan
which came first the chicken or the egg
can you ever be too proud to beg

what is the real meaning of life
is it true that we create our own strife
do the souls of dead bodies need a place to go
is everyone in heaven named jane doe or joe blow

the philosophers don’t know the answers
logic moving about like the tap dancers
when they don’t even know if the question is right
putting the mind into a knot that is pulled real tight

humans are hell bent on self destruction
blindly following religious instruction
who knows, who cares, let the mind wander
if you have a life there is no need to ponder

enjoy the moment, this too shall pass
the destination is the same, tourist or first class

Believe

.

“Those who

don’t believe

in magic

will never

find it.”

.

~ Roald Dahl

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

illusion
magic trick
a supernatural conjuring
the charming sorcerers deception
legerdemain

.

Haiku:

.

cool April showers

nudge May flowers from the earth

spring is official

Poem:      20 times ( x ic )

.

he dreamt of things which defied logic,

his heart was malleable and plastic,

forever and always the romantic,

he pined for the times nostalgic,

when he was able to trip the light fantastic,

when life in general was not that frantic

unfortunately, reality taught him to be sarcastic

many suggested that he go play in the traffic

his response was to always play the dramatic

lay on the floor and flop around like a spastic

friends and family learned to ignore that tactic

they pushed his buttons just to see him panic

at last the diagnosis came back as a manic

all of his symptoms were crazy classic

he was given steps to recovery that were drastic

they named consequences that were graphic

with no change his life would become static

learn to be wrong, give up the fanatic

he changed, he laughed, he loved, he was ecstatic

was it a miracle or was it magic
