Masters Of The World

.

.

“On the shining yards of heaven

See a wider dawn unfurled. . . .

The eternal slaves of beauty

Are the masters of the world.”

.

~ Bliss Carman

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

master

over all

leader by name

land, sea, air, fire

lord

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

dysfunctional fun

locking children out of house

who gets the last laugh

.

Poem:

.

do you only see the ugly
do you only see the beautiful
is your life just awfully fugly
is your life an enjoyable musical

life is an emotional roller coaster
up and down, slow and fast
is your best look printed on a wanted poster
do you fit into a typical typecast

does your life fit your personality
does your personality fit your life
can you claim a dual modality
how well do you handle strife

can’t answer any of the questions above
who really cares
it’s always your life to do with as you love
upstairs or downstairs

The Ancients

.

“It has been said

by the ancients

that poetry is a

picture without form,

and painting is a

poem with form”

.

– HuaI (Song Dynasty)

.

Elfje:

.

form

or function

words or shapes

art for arts sake

ancient

.

Elfje   (Cinquain)

.

gasp

can’t breathe

trying to survive

everything is black and white

nightmare

.

Haiku:

.

nature has her form

survival of the fittest

are we included

.

Poem:

.

flights of fantasy, daydreams
over and over the same unreal themes
the what if I were rich instead of beautiful
dancing, singing, the star of a musical

no morbid thoughts to inspire a poem
wishing the reveries were to be an omen
castles in the air sparked by jealously
life’s decisions handled carelessly

dreams, not goals, wasting life’s precious moment
my lethargy being my own worst opponent
move a muscle, change a thought
maybe today, maybe today,  I’ll hit the jackpot
