Bring Some Of It With You

.

“You will

find poetry

nowhere

unless you bring

some of it with you.”

.

― Joseph Joubert

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

rhyme

shared thoughts

reader to listener

audience to the writer

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

freezing rain breaks boughs

nature’s attempt to prune limbs

springs healthy new growth

.

Poem:

.

once there were a happy people
living and loving very peaceful
every house had a heaven pointing steeple
children played and laughed gleeful

could there ever again be such a place
acceptance did not depend on your face
everyone respected each others space
there was only one human race

can politicians dictate such a thing
do miracles arrive on an angel’s wing
faithful marriages signed with a ring
harmonies that all are able to sing

will geneticist eventually eliminate the ego
no more testing with a placebo
no man made boundaries, you are free to go
peace and love the only credo

let us all raise a grateful prayer
work together to clear the air
eliminate the threat of warfare
solve the need for welfare

know that time will go on without us
only evil thoughts should be treasonous
most hopes and dreams are superfluous
God,
just let me be another bozo . . . on the bus

Fill It Full


.

“I do think that poetry

is important though,

if you don’t strive at it,

if you don’t fill it full

of stars and falseness.”

.

― Charles Bukowski
.

Elfje:              (Cinquain)

.

life

every day

doing ones best

making the world better

love

.

Haiku:

.

bird chirps signal dawn

morning sun burns off the dew

miracles abound

.

Poem:                           (Rondeau and an almost)

.

I need a translation
a perfect quotation
do you know what I said
the language is not dead
love is the foundation

nuances in connotation
seeking a good vibration
easier spoken than read
I need a translation

romance can be a fixation
creating a fuzzy sensation
too many thoughts in my head
with this ring I thee wed
is this the day of my salvation                      (correct form)
I need a translation

.

or:

romance can be a fixation
creating a fuzzy sensation
too many thoughts in my head
with this ring I thee wed
is this the day I will forever dread           (my almost form)
I need a translation
