What Am I Saying

.

“I am so clever

that sometimes

I don’t understand

a single word

of what I am saying.”

.

~  Oscar Wilde

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

clever

so smart

mentally quick, resourceful

showing inventiveness and skill

ingenious

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

it has stopped raining

sunny skies

humidity builds

.

Poem:

.

ha, ha, ha
laughing is a positive
wa, wa, wa
crying is a negative

most souls live somewhere in the middle
no crying, no laughing, no playing the fiddle
the fortunate live life on the positive side
never forgetting when they have cried

shed a crocodile tear for the ignorant
guard your ego with motivations innocent
laugh at the pompous clowns know as politicians
sympathize with the many who suffer untreated addictions

the world will go on with or without us
even the best are just another bozo on the bus
laughing with but not at others
we are all siblings from different mothers

ha, ha, ha
laughing is contagious
wa, wa, wa
crying is courageous

All That Glitters

.

“For you may palm

upon us

new for old:

All,

as they say,

that glitters,

is not gold.”

.

~  John Dryden

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

flowering

beautiful colors

exquisite pleasing aroma

subject for the artist

bouquet

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

shallow babbling brook

from the mountains melting snow

stocked with rainbow trout

 

will global warming kill it

will pollution get there first

.

Poem:

.

the beautiful grandchild giggles
the laugh of the innocent young
the walk is mostly unstable wiggles
to mother’s hem she desperately clung

smiling until she wants something
small grunts eventually become crocodile tears
your heart she is constantly touching
now realizing how quickly went the years

remembering when her father had no fears
could or would not give up trying for nothing
each new step rewarded with cheers
win or lose there was always the loving

praying that her generation will live in peace
that man’s selfish insanity will soon cease
