The Spontaneous Overflow

.

“Poetry is

the spontaneous overflow

of powerful feelings:

it takes its origin

from emotion recollected

in tranquility.”

.

.

~ William Wordsworth

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

loud

ear piercing

rapping, banging, pulsating

oversized car audio system

obnoxious

.

Haiku:

.

morning chill no frost

cold air moves towards tropics

winter ebbs and flows

.

Poem:

Tranquillity, serenity , peace, quiet and calm
destroyed by the horrific moron next door
there is no app for that on my favorite dot.com
instincts have been reduced to pacing the floor

Something is trying to teach me a lesson
can’t see the value in patience and tolerance
learning the two step to avoid depression
praying to God to rid me of this annoyance

Is this a new game, what’s it called
war, battle, shoot, maim, destroy
can’t figure out why no one is appalled
to the mentally disturbed it’s more than a toy

The console a babysitter with no parental control
addictive behaviors being fine tuned
rapidly disappearing down the rabbit hole
to a life of failure they are surely doomed

A grateful heart will never be jealous
but for the grace of a Higher Power
protect those who you value precious
don’t let the insane destroy your ivory tower

Every day will hold at least one blessing
smile, it keeps them guessing.

Speak Wildly

.

“The poet knows

that he speaks

adequately,

then, only when

he speaks somewhat

wildly.”

.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

illusion

minds eye

what could be

listening to the silence

imagination

.

Haiku:

.

gurgling fountains

pond covered with lily pads

croaking frogs chime in

.

Poem:
.

why argue,
does anyone remember
how to have a discussion,
debate has become a monologue

arbitration skills long forgotten
ignorance leads to a temper shorten
does he who yells the loudest win
isn’t anger and rage a deadly sin

is it the ego that says we can’t be wrong
is it the will that must be strong
or is it just a deep seated need to dramatize
what does it take to compromise

for some it seems to be just a bad habit
for a covey it’s just another sabbat
an addicts need to be antisocial
paranoia that grows exponential

be wise, keep your mouth shut
a flappy jaw will expose your butt
arguing with the idiot makes you the moron
think outside of the box, be the sharpest crayon

engage the brain before running the mouth
be sure to speak only the truth
if you must argue, for God’s sake
be a humble loser and buy the cake
