Must It Be Understood ? ? ?

“I’ve written

some poetry

I don’t understand

myself”

.

~ Carl Sandburg

Elfje:   (also known as a Cinquain)

.

words

homonym, homophone

similar but different

sounds like but not

understand

.

Haiku:

.

true spring has arrived

jasmine fragrance fills the air

sinuses react

.

Poem:

.

the jasmine, the jasmine, the blooms proliferate

the arbor moans under the vines weight

the fragrant aroma wafts through an open window

for the chickadees there is a convenient pillow

.

every blossom so intricately designed

as a host there is a scrumptious feast refined

just like snow flakes there are never two the same

for the Great Creator there is a miracle to acclaim

.

the garden is a frame for the artists blank canvas

colors and shapes developed like a poems stanzas

Mother Nature provides the pallet of a rainbow

the gardeners blueprint is their personal trousseau

.

delightful, wonderful, awesome, a subject never boring

real or imagined, my your garden always be most adoring.

Cheer

“A poet is

a nightingale,

who sits in darkness

and sings to cheer

its own solitude

with sweet sounds.”

.

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

.

Troiku

.

the rainy season

thunder and lightening daily

swamps are being born

 

the rainy season

daylight goes from long to short

warm oceans give birth

 

raining cats and dogs

thunder and lightening daily

life’s vital water

 

Mother Natures gifts

the Great Creators bounty

swamps are being born

ME and the Boss

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the first stanza shares the first line of the origina haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the second stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section
