Like Beautiful Music

.

“A poet is an unhappy being
whose heart is torn
by secret sufferings,
but whose lips are so
strangely formed that when
the sighs and the cries
escape them, they sound
like beautiful music.”

.

― Soren Kierkegaard

sound

two feet

hale and hearty

planted on the ground

healthy

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

music to my ears

symphony

orchestra in tune

.

Poem:

.

am I hearing things
can it be a wish and a prayer
is it the sound of angels wings
pixies a silent oath do swear

am I seeing things
could it be just a mirage
is it politically attached with strings
gnomes hidden by camouflage

am I feeling things
emotions tied to the heart
wistfully longing for magic rings
gremlins believe in modern art

am I dreaming things
may it be the kissing disease
gifts of beauty from benevolent kings
fairies that can float on a breeze

what determined who I am
I probably need a 12 step program

Dreams Do Show

.

“All days are nights

to see till I see thee,

And nights bright days

when dreams do show

thee me.”

.

― Shakespeare; William, Sonnets

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

music

mathematically perfect

instruments unique sounds

what do you hear

euphony

.

Haiku:

.

as front follows front

cyclical weather patterns

hot cold rain hot cold

.

Poem:

.

why is love such a common poetic theme ? ? ?
because love is such a hard thing to describe
philosophers go to great lengths to prescribe
but poets can explain the word in a dream

analogies, metaphors swiftly drip from the poet’s  pen
feelings physical, emotional and spiritual
mixed and matched with words lyrical
learned on the laps of the mothers of men

love is in the mind of the beholder
sensations essential to a time and place
objects or persons which we cannot efface
sentiments that grow stronger as they become older

thank you Shakespeare for the sonnet
for the purist it is truly mnemonic
