Curious Prosodic Fauna

.

“Every poet has

his dream reader:

mine keeps a look out

for curious prosodic fauna

like bacchics and

choriambs.”

.

~ W.H. Auden

drunk

happy vino

dripping with honey

seeking the deviant pleasure

Bacchanalia

.

Haiku:

.

the vine slowly twines

natures cornucopia

fruits red, white and blue

.

Poem:

.

soothing gurgle of the fountains water
butterflies bobbing by
every soul nods an imprimatur
the background a clear blue sky

the gardner paints a living pallet
flowers arranged by size and color
protected from vermine by a small vallate
no defense against the creepy crawler

sunset visits from hummingbirds
migrating robins stop for a bite
a contented smile needs no words
all heads turn to follow the light

lucky the soul who enjoys God’s gift
natures flora and fauna displayed
happy are those with a gratitude list
knowing that nothing at all is man-made

Riches

.

“I have

no riches

but my thoughts,

Yet these are

wealth enough

for me”

.

~ Sara Teasdale

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

memories

emotions shared

time spent together

common bonds, mutual pleasures

riches

.

Haiku:

.

winter hot, spring cold

natures rhythm run amuck

unseasonable

.

Poem:

.

what stirs the emotions
fluffy white clouds against an azure blue sky
the birds and the bees singing and buzzing
should I laugh or should I cry

do hearts have feelings
is it sad or am I happy
tears of remorse, tears of joy
must the words always be sappy

events accompanied by somesthesia
visible, audible, aromatic or tactile
vivid memories and thoughts subliminal
will they continue when we become senile

are feelings sensual or are they intuitive
are passions the product of nurtured or nature
the sick shut down the emotional stream
no longer human, a thoughtless cold creature

be moved, be human, enjoy God’s creations
His greatest works are emotionally inspiring
