Stupider

.

“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

.

~C. S. Lewis

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

.

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

flaw

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

.

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

Evolved

.

“All religion,

my friend,

is simply evolved

out of fraud, fear,

greed, imagination,

and poetry.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

vision

unreal thoughts

vivid mental picture

things that don’t exist

imagination

nature’s true colors

camouflage

can you see me now

Poem:

.

is there another world parallel to our own
what some have called the twilight zone

where everything is opposite, black or white
where the darkest dark becomes the bright

no good or evil, just a calm
ethereal music accompanying a psalm

everything positive, no negatives allowed
nine is the number assigned to every cloud

a surreal place that is not a dream
all meals end with peaches and cream

every soul is born with a red heart
all other features are a la carte

feelings that do not include fear and hate
there is no crooked, only straight

could we live in both worlds at the same time
in a place where there would be no crime

a place where speech writers would not take sides
where politicians don’t change with the tides

as long as there are egos it will not happen
but there is no reason that we cannot imagine

Today, think love, peace and prosperity
allow every motive to be benefit charity
