A Passionate Pursuit

.

“I have

defined poetry

as a ‘passionate

pursuit of

the Real.”

.
Czeslaw Milosz

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

real
as pure
just as is
not at all false
true

.

Lune: 3,5,3 syllables ( In Reverse, Lune should be 5,3,5 )

.

passionate
most intense feeling
heart ablaze

.

Poem:

.

mystical, magical, an awesome miracle
for those in recovery it is empirical
in life there are no mere coincidences
there are only fortuitous God incidents

born with a brain on backwards
most grew up to become bad actors
the on / off switch definitely broken
surely quite unique but still a token

for those who never quite fit in
keep coming back was a good place to begin
a warm welcome which gave many goose bumps
a fellowship using a Good Orderly Direction

a Higher Power by any name is acceptable
most of the miracles are barely perceptible
a backward brain does not mean that they are insane
the road to recovery is becoming humane

miracles are most often a change in attitude
many learn the joy of having gratitude
abstinence gives one a new life to be what you want to be
a soul who is happy, joyous and free

Go On Trying

.

“Every poem I write

falls short

in some important way.

But I go on trying

to write

the one that won’t. ”

.

― Dorianne Laux

.

Elfje:

.

flowers
attract butterflies
bees that sting
bugs wanting free lunch
hummingbirds that do not sing
magical

.

Haiku:

.

essence of being
natures miracle at work
air that supports life

.

Poem:

.

waking to a  beautiful morn
rejuvenated during the restful night
sunshine bright and warm
the sky resplendent at first light

another day to do God’s will
steward of nature, helper to others
the sun reflected in the flowering daffodil
dew drops sprinkled by the fairy godmother

love begins with a kindness
God, Nature, others and self
creating families that are priceless
all things protected by the garden elf

is there a rhyme , a reason for the season
what really transpired in the garden of Eden
