Trifles

“Trifles make

perfection,

and perfection

is no trifle.”

plain

most clean

no foul dirt

as God made it

pure

St Valentines Day
his unconditional love
a channel for God

you too can be His channel
just love without a limit

.

Poem:

.

failed, misplaced, skipped, omitted, lost
you can’t retrieve the past at any cost
don’t blame the memory for getting old
it is mostly the lies that we have been told

hindsight tells me that I missed my prime
either misused or squandered most of my time
no use crying over all of the spilled milk
a sows ear can’t be made into a purse of silk

forget the past, let the hair down, have some fun
soak up the sun, even if the work is not done
time is an element that man will not conquer
it’s our perception what makes time a monster

today, let time manage it’s own image
are you alive ?,
just thank God for that privilege

That Celestial Source

“Every beauty which

is seen here by

persons of perception

resembles more

than anything else

that celestial source

from which we all are come.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

glee

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

beautiful sky

sun and mist

rainbows everywhere

Poem:

.

to be a raspberry or not
identified by the purple spot
how did it become the Bronx cheer
fans who consumed one to many a beer

the bush, however, is a thorny problem
bees and butterflies love the blossom
one plant gives birth to a hundred suckers
this is only good if your name is Smuckers

at the local diner berries are the favorite pie
at home, dad’s favorite was the infamous shoofly
topped with ice cream, they are berrie berrie good
berries in a smoothie is well understood

wild berries were lunch for the wandering child
delightful innocence,  and God smiled
that pollution won’t spoil the berries we pray
you, yourself, please have a berry good day
