Those Who Don’t Believe

.

.

“And above all,

watch with glittering eyes

the whole world around you

because the greatest secrets

are always hidden in

the most unlikely places.

Those who don’t believe in magic

will never find it.”

.

.

~  Roald Dahl

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

magic

hocus pocus

now you don’t

now you see it

prestidigitation

.

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

.

happy, joyous, free

the addict recovering

ever vigilant

.

Poem:

.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:”
Thus St. Francis of Assisi begins his prayer
one soul at a time asking love to increase
replacing negatives one need not bear

from seven negatives, each a positive given
a personal dedication to prayer votives
become willing to accept God’s admonition
sympathise, love, abandon selfish motives

“divine Master” give me the strength
to do what is right at any price
the courage to go to any length
to make this world a place that is nice

know the wonderful paradoxes,
that you must give to receive
satisfaction that the soul transfixes
love more for happiness to achieve

have faith, there is nothing to despair
enjoy a beautiful life given for us to share

Locked Away

.

Your poetry-

-it doesn’t deserve

to be locked away,

hidden from the rest

of the world.

And neither do you.”

.

― Tessa Emily Hall

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

hidden

not seen

between the lines

physical presence, true meaning

obscured

.

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

.

trembling with true fear

unknown future looms doubtful

selfish wants control

.

Poem:

.

can you laugh for no reason at all
what does it take to keep you on the ball
how boring do you want your life to be
is your whole life wrapped up in me, I, me

today start thinking outside of the box
use your head for more than storing rocks
find a new way to make a friend
don’t wish, don’t dream, don’t pretend

action is the key to a happier life
they live the longest, husband and wife
no one deserves to be hidden from the world
there is no flower until the bud is uncurled

bloom,
do your best to make this world a better place
zoom,
do your own thing, just avoid the rat race
