Masters Of The World

.

.

“On the shining yards of heaven

See a wider dawn unfurled. . . .

The eternal slaves of beauty

Are the masters of the world.”

.

.

~ Bliss Carman

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

master

over all

leader by name

land, sea, air, fire

lord

.

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

.

dysfunctional fun

locking children out of house

who gets the last laugh

.

Poem:

.

do you only see the ugly
do you only see the beautiful
is your life just awfully fugly
is your life an enjoyable musical

life is an emotional roller coaster
up and down, slow and fast
is your best look printed on a wanted poster
do you fit into a typical typecast

does your life fit your personality
does your personality fit your life
can you claim a dual modality
how well do you handle strife

can’t answer any of the questions above
who really cares
it’s always your life to do with as you love
upstairs or downstairs

Our Emptiness

.

“Trees are poems

the earth writes

upon the sky,

We fell them down

and turn them into paper,

That we may record

our emptiness.”

.

~ Kahlil Gibran

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

barren

devoid of

big empty space

nothing to sneeze at

void

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

over extended

exhausted

giving it ones all

.

Poem:

.

get your head out of the sand
do you think that you’re a one man band
believe that you will never crash land
do you always want more than the Bird-in-Hand*

you’re a wanna be guru, the blind leading the blind
did you ever consider having a balanced mind
to a life below average you have resigned
know that even the sane are one of a kind

for you hope and faith are still achievable
miracles that bring about change are believable
there hasn’t been a soul that was irretrievable
in God’s world there is nothing inconceivable

time to put the ego in its place
name the bad habits you need to erase
give friends and family their needed space
ask a Higher Power for His grace

be willing to say I do not know
don’t believe your own braggadocio
learn to go with the flow
look up, see the rainbow

be kind to yourself, offer lenity
provide for yourself every amenity
hope and faith, a life of peace and serenity
gratitude for having a new identity
