In One’s Own Life

.

“Poetry is nothing

if it exists

only in books.

One has to find it

in one’s own life.”

.

― Marty Rubin

Elfje:

.

ready
get set
on your mark
no place to go
ratrace

.

Haiku:

.

serene and peaceful
natures majesty displayed
tranquil summers eve

.

Poem:

.

In and Out

.

in
ones
own life
the ebb and flow
the coming and going
growing to physical maturity
hopefully becoming wise along the way
trying to resolve life’s mysteries
quickly the time has passed
celebrating or mourning
reflecting on events
it’s God’s time
over and
out

What’s It Like

.

“no poet can know

what his poem

is going to be like

until he has written it.”

.

~ W.H. Auden

.

Elfje:

.

what

who, when

where, why, how

questions with no answers

surprise

.

Haiku:

.

migrating birds seen

seasons are about to change

natures ebb and flow

.

Poem:

.

choices: up or down

is it a smile or a frown

a positive attitude of gratitude

or is it just a swing of the mood

 

do others push your buttons

feelings extracted with a summons

is the mind attached to the emotion

can the view be swayed by a magic potion

 

is the Pollyanna being realistic

must you always consult a mystic

can we overthink every decision

are your instincts in collision

 

it’s time: push has come to shove

can you suggest an alternative
