The Final Achievement

.

“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

eased
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me
pleased

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

please pay the piper
compensate
donate to the cause

Poem:
.

azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun

cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.

eyes that sparkle

a very happy heart

peace and happiness

joyful bliss

by doing God’s will

Poem:

.

a hot muggy summers night
air so thick it hazes the moonlight
crickets and frogs don’t seem to mind
what a wonderful world God has designed

man’s so vain he thinks he can affect the weather
it’s Mother Nature who puts things together
evolution caused by the Earth’s wobble
man is but one percent of the climate bobble

the earth’s crust is constantly shifting
the tectonic plates are always drifting
man’s existence is but a blip on the Earth’s timeline
for what little we know we can thank Einstein

who cares if New York City sinks under the sea
that Saint Andreas fault sets California free
is there an Orwellian world in our future
or will civilization flush itself down the sewer

will man’s ego still reign supreme
or will we wake up and learn that it was all a dream
