A Character

.

“Then you are a poet?’

she asked, fingering

the flyer in her pocket.

No not at all,

he waved his hand.

I am merely a character

in a poem.”

hand

pass out

give to each

play cards for fun

deal

Senryu:

.

her expectations

she will cry over spilt milk

she wants what she wants

.

Poem:

.

no rhyme, no reason, no character
the poem had no relationship with an ancient mariner
the words just stumbled along looking for a home
the poem even sought advice from the garden gnome

even the writing muse shook her head
she said no line could be writ with a golden thread
despite the obstacles the poem kept trudging along
the page had to be filled come right or wrong

and then in a dream the character appeared
a hero who said there was nothing to be feared
said she, the words you seek are a dime a dozen
and most are as enjoyable as a kissing cousin

the poem was ecstatic, giggling with delight
the ideas kept coming day and night
adieu the hero said, my job is done here
she said the poems model should be Shakespeare

so is this a sonnet, to be or not to be
probably. with just an extra quatrain, as you can see

Little Words

When you are gone,
there is nor bloom nor leaf,
Nor singing sea at night,

nor silver birds;
And I can only stare,

and shape my grief
In little words.


Dorothy Parker

Senryu:

born to be happy

was loved and knew how to love

with a heart of gold

Poem:

.

here’s hoping that your every day is a Sunday
giving your Higher Power a day to rest
having gratitude for each and every day
doing His will makes it the best

accepting life without a worry
always trying to do the next right thing
do it now so later you won’t have to hurry
please don’t cry over the broken shoe string

begin each day with an attitude of gratitude
best to know that you have a choice
better to be seen than being viewed
show your love by using a happy voice

don’t pay Peter by what from Paul you rob
always the choice, happiness is an inside job
