A Stretch Of The Imagination

.

You’re a cavity in my oasis,
You’re a porthole in my sea,
You’re a stretch of the imagination
every time you look at me.

You’re an ocean in my wineglass,
You’re a Steinway on the beach,
You’re a captivating audience,
an exciting Rembrandt,

A Masterpiece.”

imagine

mind’s eye

what could be

things yet dreamt of

envision

Haiku:

.

the birds have returned

spring looks forward to summer

nests are full of eggs

Poem:

.

lies, lies, lies
why must the alcoholic lie
the truth would be so simple
has it something to do with being a mental cripple

the brain is on backwards
life is lived in the negative
many take pride in being bad actors
for many it is in the genes, mostly inherited

lying to themselves, denial
lying to others, justification
their  most fervent prayer is for a mistrial
for family and friends it is just frustration

the drunk is anything but modest
trouble is he cannot get honest
he is addicted, body, mind and soul
a good argument for population control

if they want the help there is a way out
kind words spoken quietly, no need to shout
the miracles rely on a Higher Power
and a judicious using of ones willpower

willingness to change is the most difficult must
in himself he must learn to trust
following the suggestions there is a guarantee
to find a life that is happy, joyous and free

I Am A Dreamer

“Yes: I am a dreamer.

For a dreamer is

one who can only

find his way by

moonlight,

and his punishment

is that he sees

the dawn before

the rest of the world.”

~  Oscar Wilde

dawn

suns up

the cock crows

the milking is done

morning

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

.

living in a dream

the world as we want it

peaceful contentment

.

Poem:

.

love, battle, peace, confrontation
from morbid depression to ecstatic elation
the rollercoaster of relationships for many
the emotional distance between a teenager and twenty

face to face, behind the back
taking turns when going on the attack
never heard of the word compromise
keeping score, there are never any ties

rare is the ego that knows how to listen
feelings stuffed in a self imposed prison
could have, should have dominates the mind
time lost is something you will never find

steps to restore one to sane thinking
an alcoholics resolve to stop drinking
they say you can’t change horses mid-stream
but changing one’s life is more than a dream

sober children make for happy mothers
willing to be honest with self and others
a healthy relationship is not about me
a loving Higher Power will set you free
