Writing Well

.

.

“Writing well

is the best

revenge.”

.

~  Dorothy Parker

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)     classic: each word only one syllable

.

pick

don’t grab

make it quick

catch what you can

choose

.

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

.

you can pick your love

will your choice pick you to love

whose heart gets broken

.

Poem:

.

you can’t win if you don’t play
can we treat life like a child’s game
are you a color or are you a bouquet
is there really something in a name

the clouds diminished into rainbows
the seasons came and went
clover in all colors covers the meadows
in nature nothing is ever spent

so many questions and so few answers
discovered today, obsolete tomorrow
does love motivate flamenco dancers
can eyes wide open see a peep show

I’m so content to ask the question
please, just don’t ask me for the answer

Humor and Laughter

.

“Humor is

a prelude

to faith,

and laughter

is the beginning

of prayer.”

.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

.

pray

my plea

if you please

may all be fair

grace

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

God given seasons

a prayer of gratitude

just go with the flow

.

Poem:

.

time, time, please slow down Mr. Time . . . .
you are faster than I can rhyme
your speed also made me miss my prime
you look like a mountain that I can never climb

please Mr. Time can you be so kind
promise that you will never leave me behind
I’m trying my best to survive just for today
does it help that you are named when I pray

I do thank you Mr. Time for all of the  memories
grateful to have celebrated so many anniversaries
it is my selfish heart that wants so many more
it is not as though I have been keeping score

I apologize Mr. Time for missing the point
today is the day that I must truly anoint
yesterdays and tomorrows can only cloud my view
today I will enjoy your Time looking for what’s new
