Tales To Spin

.

“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”

.

― Shel Silverstein

.

Elfje:

.

imagination

contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed

tales

.

Haiku:

.

what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place

.

Poem:

.

let go or be pulled along

replace it with something better

does every life need a theme song

are we marked with a scarlet letter

.

seeking positive reinforcement

family and friends the preferred source

proud to receive a personal endorsement

stepping stones to  life’s best course

.

the devil dines on the negative

set your table with the bright optimistic

the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited

allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic

.

focused on the here and now

have faith, you do know how.

.

ME and the Boss

Do You Follow ?

“Rem tene, verba sequentur:
grasp the subject,
and the words will follow.
This, I believe,
is the opposite of what
happens with poetry,
which is more a case of
verba tene, res sequenter:
grasp the words,
and the subject will follow.”

.

― Umberto Eco

.

Elfje:

.

words

your vocabulary

alliteration, onomatopoeia, synecdoche

the subject will follow

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

flora and fauna

nature’s bounty sustains life

warm to the senses

.

Poem:

.

I had no idea what I was going to write

my mind couldn’t find a word just for spite

every word that came to mind was very weird

so I grabbed the word and the subject appeared

 

.

I read what I wrote and eureka: indecision

obviously my minds eye has terrible vision

the bane of my life, from eating, sleeping to writing

yet it’s good that all these choices make life exciting

.

never satisfied, always, what is the alternative

where is the sign that points to the affirmative

the back up is to have someone else to blame

just waiting for luck to call out my name

.

now to pick the  method to end this subject

too many ways, it will never be perfect

will a colored bow do the theme justice

direction, is it the crazy eight ball or a compass

.

indecision: the subject that never ends.
