Every Weirdo

“Every weirdo

in the world

is on my

wavelength.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

strange

real queer

more than odd

a small bit quaint

weird

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

thunder and lightning

followed by

a deluge of rain

Poem:

.

pondering do I have a philosophy
conjuring up Socrates subconsciously
does my life really have a meaning
if I’m lucky I might just be dreaming

Dad said I should always be kind
love is what Mother brought to mind
can’t remember what the preacher said
the teacher tried to pound it into my head

good and bad are a matter of opinion
is there a God who has total dominion
what does ugly know about aesthetics
what percent of me is in the genetics

you lose if you were blinking
me, I was only winking
eureka, I got it when I heard the bell ringing
my philosophy requires no real thinking

it is what it is

In Flowers

.

“The

earth

laughs

in flowers.”

~  Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

luminous

shadowy light

deep inner glow

filmy but subtly translucent

opalescent

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

loved to distraction

awful close to smothering

you cannot own them

too jealous is a sickness

room to breathe does much better

.

Poem:

.

act your age
I don’t know how
I’ve never been this age before
am I supposed to act like a bore

it is not an act, I think I am real
I know I am not a very big deal
I’m just glad to be little old me
a soul that is happy, joyous and free

getting old has not been fun
that and too many things left undone
will the circus ever come back to town
do you have to grow up if you are a clown

in the beginning the sun will rise
all of nature will look to the skies
when all is done the sun will set
each day a deadly game of roulette

today I’ll act the way I want to act
regardless of my age, and that is a fact
