“breathe in

experience

breathe out

poetry”

.

― Muriel Rukeyser

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

art

song, dance

whats your choice

hearts beating with joy

pleasure

.

Haiku:

.

spirit of all things

ethereal nature moves

the sound of silence

.

Poem:

.

she shouted from the other room

something about a flower in bloom

.

I turned on my selective hearing

my thoughts turned to disappearing

.

her insistence sounded like a request

or maybe a very small order at best

.

obviously my turn, should I answer

I felt I was being treated like a gandy dancer

.

another yelp and the tone became stern

just go on, do it, her affections to earn

.

I go before the queen, who gave me audience

years and tears have given me sapience

.

a man should know that a happy wife

gives him a very happy life . . .

Rise Up And Soar

.

“I do not understand

the whole thrilling verse,

but I love the way poetry

turns ordinary words

into winged things

that rise up and soar!”

.

– Margarita Engle

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

dare

to fly

to be you

rise up and soar

individual

.

Haiku:

.

birds rise up and soar

escaping the predator

survival defense

.

Poem:
.

who doesn’t like the challenge

the imbecile, the retarded

the emotional with too much baggage

the coward with feelings guarded

.

those from the gene pool discarded  . . .

dare to be a man among men

strong enough to take out the garbage

willing to be wrong every now and then

.

be willing to define your role

know that it is OK to share a feeling

understand that God gave you a soul

emotions are not for concealing

,

who gains from acting macho

double dealing with someones heart

a ghost who is sordid and hollow

an ego that is far from smart

.

be the man who makes your mother proud

a loving person who can care and share

stand head and shoulders above the crowd

a man of faith, a wish and a prayer

.

have a goal to make this world a better place

be willing to accept all of God’s grace.
