Curious Prosodic Fauna

.

“Every poet has

his dream reader:

mine keeps a look out

for curious prosodic fauna

like bacchics and

choriambs.”

.

~ W.H. Auden

drunk

happy vino

dripping with honey

seeking the deviant pleasure

Bacchanalia

.

Haiku:

.

the vine slowly twines

natures cornucopia

fruits red, white and blue

.

Poem:

.

soothing gurgle of the fountains water
butterflies bobbing by
every soul nods an imprimatur
the background a clear blue sky

the gardner paints a living pallet
flowers arranged by size and color
protected from vermine by a small vallate
no defense against the creepy crawler

sunset visits from hummingbirds
migrating robins stop for a bite
a contented smile needs no words
all heads turn to follow the light

lucky the soul who enjoys God’s gift
natures flora and fauna displayed
happy are those with a gratitude list
knowing that nothing at all is man-made

BALLPOINT PENGUINS

.

“The BALLPOINT PENGUINS,

black and white,

Do little else but write and write.

Although they’ve nothing much to say,

They write and write it anyway….”

~ Jack Prelutsky

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

grateful

perfectly imperfect

doing God’s will

serving others before self

Humble

.

Haiku:

.

the days grow longer

flora and fauna gain speed

hot summer signals

.

Poem:

.

he stuttered when he spoke
ideas moving faster than his tongue
it took forever to tell a joke
rarely spoke when he was young

no hesitations when he sang
writing became his minds escape
clear as a bell did he harangue
communicated well using an edited tape

his keyboard never stuttered
varied and wide his imagination
clever stories never cluttered
kudos and many a public citation

when asked the source of his inspiration
his simple reply, a Godly donation
