The Experimental Life

.

“The world has

never favored

the experimental life.

It despises poets,

fanatics, prophets

and lovers.”

hook

by crook

what the heck

nails on the paw

claw

Senryu:

,

lost in mornings mist

a question which way to turn

the mind is at sea

,

Poem:

.

so sad
they died so young
taken by the disease of addiction

I’m mad
so many songs to be sung
for some families a predisposition

granddad
the first to be stung
but not the first to suffer from the trip to perdition

dad
heard it from grandmother’s tongue
but he chose to ignore the dreaded admonition

son
much to young to see how the door swung
hopefully the last to suffer from this malediction

I’m glad
on the ladder there is one more rung
a twelve step program to keep the devil in remission

A Moment’s Thinking

.

“A moment’s

thinking

is an hour

in words.”

.

~ Thomas Hood

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

excuse

plausible cause

communicate a reason

in so many words

explain

.

Haiku:

.

a perfect season

long hot days and muggy nights

summer grows the crops

.

Poem:

.

star crossed lovers see only each other
completely absorbed in one another
the moon or honeymoon will eventually be over
life is not always a bed of clover

for the majority there is a compromise
they bury the hatchet which is very wise
for the selfish sicky the war only escalates
for the sake of a pun they end up as stalemates

only the sickest hold a resentment forever
the wise are smart enough to never say never
human nature says that most relationships mellow
love and compassion make for the best bedfellow

I had a friend, to stay married it took him three tries
he learned to give, he learned to share, surprise
no secrets, she lets him know when things are not right
he said chivalry is not dead, he is now the white knight

may God bless all of your relationships
may your love avoid the apocalypse
