What Is The Question ? ? ?

.

“It is better

to know some

of the questions

than all of

the answers.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.

ask
call for
want to say
beg to see more
pose

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
Florida sweet corn
first crop is ready to pick
enough sun and rain

Poem:

.

there is this kitten from hell
all he does is very loudly yell
a needy cat all he wants is attention
the energy level is from another dimension

the cat in the mirror is his newest toy
full steam ahead, no need to be coy
such a little thing with such a loud purr
so much life in that small ball of fur

always in trouble, too much curiosity
to the family he is a source of jocosity
no, no, let go of that curtain
looks like he’ll need all nine lives that is for certain

will we still love him when he becomes a cat ? ? ?
probably, as long as he doesn’t become a bureaucrat

Hide And Seek

 .

.

“The same words

conceal and declare

the thoughts of men.”

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

hide

and seek

subliminal mind games

God knows your thoughts

exposed

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

politics aside

they must run

egomaniacs

Poem:

.

was it love or was it lust
my heart I could not trust
the primal urges exploded
my addicted brain yelled more
thoughts that I could not ignore
my gene pool overloaded

emotional needs never discussed
physical satisfaction was a must
the morals were completely eroded
fantasies and conquests keeping score
deeds normal people would deplore
to selfish needs I was devoted

I regarded myself with distrust
knowing what I was doing was unjust
I was the person to be avoided
came and went through the back door
rarely was I asked to do an encore
answers to my advances were pre recorded

no, not tonight, no, never, you slime ball
if I need a headache I give you a call
finally became tired of all the rejection
met a man who taught me to listen
with a new way of living I’ve been smitten
I’ve learned to communicate with affection

growing old has become a blessing
words of love gladly expressing
in the mirror I like the reflection
learning to love has had it’s rewards
making friends from this day forwards
universal love my only selection
