Believe Nothing

.

“Believe nothing, no matter

where you read it,

or who said it, no matter

if I have said it,

unless it agrees with

your own reason and

your own common sense.”

.

~ Buddha

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

logic

common sense

practical rational knowledge

horse sense, good sense

wisdom

.

Haiku:

.

eyes look to the east

summer heat births tropic storms

hurricane season

.

Poem:

.

is it so wrong to love my stuff
when is enough ever enough
reminders of events and sentiments
things that hold a very specialness

stuck in storage the last fifteen years
having trouble holding back the tears
filling my life with rhyme and reason
mirroring the life in every season

pictures, trinkets, souvenirs
things collected over the years
been there, done that, remember when
times and places I would love to visit again

stuff collecting dust, stuff taking up space
things and memories only I can embrace

Ignoring Life

.

“Literature is

the most

agreeable way of

ignoring life.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

ignoring

no consideration

accidentally on purpose

maybe just old age

forgetting

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

been there, have the shirt
enjoyable memories
trips to my fantasy land

.

Poem:

.

the truth is rarely what it is
the conclusions were always his
my two cents was always an opinion
his attitude was he had dominion

does it matter just because he is older
my yellow spine does make him bolder
his A’s in school made him Mothers favorite
this made me feel like a useless parasite

adding insult to injury he graduates from college
my world was about gaining more carnal knowledge
for every one of his ups I had a down
my career aspiration was to be a clown

my shrink told me I had to kill him off
I ended up getting the whooping cough
I woke up, the dream was really wild
the cruel joke was, I was an only child
