The Food OF Love

.

“I have

been used to

considering poetry

as the food

of love”

.

~  Jane Austen

.

.

Elfje:

.

digestable

life giving

body, mind, soul

manna for the heart

love

.

Haiku:

.

tempest in teapot

ruled over by natures laws

minds misperception

.

Poem:

.

what is love but a billion good feelings
what is a dove
but the Creators symbol of healing

what is life just a soul encased in a body
what is a wife
just the essence of what is godly

what is true happiness a life filled with love
what is real meaningful
an effort to live a life thereof

should we endure an existence of contempt
or
should we try to make an attempt

Self-understanding

.

.

“For what is a poem

but a hazardous attempt

at self-understanding:

it is the deepest part

of autobiography.”

.

– Robert Penn Warren

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

Happiness
Supreme delight
Attaining considerable good
Manna for the soul
Felicity

.

Haiku:

.

felt but rarely seen

hot or cold the air shimmers

visible seasons

.

Poem:

.

A beautiful thing
a work of art
it makes the soul sing
the flowers in the cart
the bird on the wing
Mother Nature knows her part

today my eyes must yearn to see
and learn what beauty means to me

the subtle curves of the human body
the rainbow displaying all of the colors
the culture that enjoys decors gaudy
or is it natures well camouflaged wonders

beauty grows when viewed from the heart
to touch, to smell, to imagine, satisfaction
is there a real message in abstract art
or just wishing to evoke a shocked reaction

calm, serene enjoying the aesthetic
a positive attitude of happiness
to looking beyond the artificial cosmetic
wonderful memories that are priceless
the real, the surreal, never synthetic
accepting all splendor as God’s kindness

today my eyes must yearn to see
and learn what beauty means to me
