The Final Achievement

.

“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin

eased
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me
pleased
.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
.
please pay the piper
compensate
donate to the cause

Poem:
.

azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun

cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.

The Day Worth Living


.

“It was only a sunny smile,

and little it cost in the giving,

but like morning light

it scattered the night

and made the day

worth living.”

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

purpose

anticipated outcome

guided planned actions

quality of being determined

intention

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

what really happened

unraveling mystery

count only the facts

it was not a fairy tale

no trolls or ogres involved

.

Poem:

.

to write a ditty
you must be witty

sarcasm is not included in the flow
crazy should come from the elbow

to be a wit you should never submit
but to others wit you should admit

when in doubt just write the pun
you will find that it is so much fun

so when your words begin to fail
just go to the local rummage sale
