Emotion Is

“Emotion

is the

poetry

of life.”

.
Marty Rubin

Elfje:

.

feel
no touch
from the gut
what you may think
sense

.

Senryu: 5,7,5 syllables people and their emotions as a subject

.

gentle emotion
no laugh, no cry, just happy
the best in between

.

Poem:

.

the struggle was in his mind
was he better off dead or alive
to being hopeless he was resigned
it took too much just to survive

drugs and alcohol were a quick fix
too soon the terrible addiction took over
the mind started to play more insidious tricks
peace was an eternal sleep under a bed of clover

he woke up frozen to the ground
could not remember when the binge began
he so wanted his life to turn around
directions were needed to give him a plan

he found hope among a group of drunks
they gave him a book that had a Doctors opinion
it had twelve steps to get him out of the dumps
to a Higher Power he became a loyal minion

four scores plus he continues to thrive
the Group Of Drunks is now his sponsor
a soul at peace, just glad to be alive
to his personal God he gives all honor

In One’s Own Life

.

“Poetry is nothing

if it exists

only in books.

One has to find it

in one’s own life.”

.

Elfje:

.

ready
get set
on your mark
no place to go
ratrace

.

Haiku:

.

serene and peaceful
natures majesty displayed
tranquil summers eve

.

Poem:

.

In and Out

.

in
ones
own life
the ebb and flow
the coming and going
growing to physical maturity
hopefully becoming wise along the way
trying to resolve life’s mysteries
quickly the time has passed
celebrating or mourning
reflecting on events
it’s God’s time
over and
out
