Real Dreams

.

“Faith is the poetry

of our dreams;

action is the builder

of our reality.”

.

~  Steve Maraboli

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

truth

fully evident

cannot be denied

forever etched in stone

reality

.

Haiku:

.

icy chill, snowflakes

earth being held by winter’s grip

nature hibernates

.

Poem:

.

sunlight on the wings of a butterfly
summer sounds of bees and birds
nature’s magnificence one cannot deny
all mighty creation to glorify
comparisons at a loss for words

human vision pales inadequate
images that the artist attempt to capture
each and every day a cause to celebrate
God laughs as we try to prognosticate
time to stop thinking, enjoy the rapture

universe reduced to mathematical perfection
wavelengths that color the rainbow
mirror, mirror, whose reflection
emotions the only imperfection
an occasional mind like Leonardo or Thoreau

whose world is this anyway
can there ever be an honest legislature
is there a replacement for religion
does one need faith to file a petition
will man ever harmonize with nature

will man eventually destroy his domain
what is the true meaning of armageddon
were all humans born with the mark of Cain
can we be content with the mundane
shall we let peace cry out to heaven

Nonsense

.

“If I had a world of my own,

everything would be nonsense.

Nothing would be what it is,

because everything would be 

what it isn’t.

And contrary wise, what is, 

it wouldn’t be.

And what it wouldn’t be,

it would.

You see?”

.

~ Lewis Carroll

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

.

Elfje:

.

diametric

opposite worlds

inverse to reverse

assumed to be real

nonsense

.

Haiku

.

the jabberwocky

doesn’t need make any sense

natures world does

,

Poem:

.

poetry so serious
the truth so mysterious
thinking outside of the box
being as sly as a fox

do poems need to be true
words all mixed up like a stew
having fun piquing one’s imagination
choosing a lyric that is thracian

defining the poets little world by writing
avoiding the mundane by trying to be exciting
making it up as they go along
glad to know that they can’t be wrong

those who can’t rhyme as they compose
justify the effort by calling it poetic prose
the poem should always be a total performance
even when the content is gobbledygook nonsense

believe, you are a poet, you simply don’t know it
just pretend that you’re building a banana split
so write, write, the words precisely right
and allow your soul to take flight.

don’t know what from this might be,

just made it up ….
