Haiku On Twitter

“So I don’t think

I’ll make Poet Laureate,

but I swear I’m not

twisted and bitter

If finely-wrought talents

don’t weigh in the balance,

I can always write

haiku on Twitter.”

.

form

verses function

prose and rhymes

written from the heart

poetry

Haiku:

.

written words of praise

cannot explain the seasons

nature or reasons

.

Poem

.

maybe I am just a lunatic
the moon looming as a subject
the witch crossing its face on a broomstick
my feeble mind in a total disconnect

waiting for the cow to cross over
saw the fork elope with the spoon
rover, rover cross through the clover
if it were June would I swoon or croon

childhood memories in a scramble
events twisted by the fragile ego
emotional harms overshadow the gambol
fantasies to celebrate the grandiose libido

a dark stormy cloud obscures the man
guess I’ll return to believing I’m Peter Pan

Genuine

.

“Poetry

… a place for the genuine.

Hands that can grasp,

eyes that can dilate,

hair that can rise.”

.

― Marianne Moore

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

eyes

grow wider

seeing is beieving

how could that be

magic

.

Haiku:

.

listening to the birds

natures sounds so melodic

happiness and joy

.

Poem:

.

sitting on the fence rail
pondering the choices to be made
should I, could I, would I
why am I always so afraid

forever having fun
lessons never learned
selfish instant gratification
all those bridges that I have burned

as the Dutchman always said
too soon oldt, too late schmart
if you mind, does it matter
everyone must read Descartes

reverie over, make the decision
listen to the heart that God made
it knows to do the next right thing
without the need for an accolade

happiness, joy and freedom
blessed by a light from above
conscious, aware, sensing the vibe
enjoying the souls best feeling . . . love
