Without

.

“Any healthy man

can go without food

for two days-

-but not without poetry.”

.

~ Baudelaire

.

Elfje:        (Cinquain)

.

hope

wish for

generate good karma

for only what’s needed

faith

.

Haiku:

.

fall waits quietly

warm earth helps summer linger

daylight becomes less

.

Poem:

.

wafting aromas Saturdays baking
taste of heaven in the making
natures best mixed with love
taught by angels from above

apple, peach, cherry pie
the best molasses makes shoofly
scones, eclairs, turnovers and  strudels
oh me, oh my, I could eat oodles

remembering things that were home made
just down the street by the crazy old maid
sitting, cooling on the open window sill
shes watching us with looks that could kill

one for each, she would finally say
happiness to savor for the rest of the day

The Best Of The Best

.

“Prose:

words in their

best order;

poetry:

the best words

in the best order.”

.

~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

.

.

Elfje:        (Cinquain)

.

unexcelled

the most

beyond a doubt

one of a kind

unsurpassable     (YOU)

.

Haiku:

.

purest mother’s love

Nature’s greatest sacrfice

another life born

.

Poem:

.

you know what I mean
I hope not
a tap dance routine
what I said was not what I thought

it can be so hard to find the right words
emotions translated through gray descriptions
more difficult for those whose brains are on backwards
those who cannot follow a good living prescription

blessed are they who possess a glib tongue
better yet are those who can speak from the heart
the lucky figure it out when they are young
common sense does not require that one be smart

always choose your words carefully
and remember
best feelings are usually shared wordlessly
