What Am I Saying

.

“I am so clever

that sometimes

I don’t understand

a single word

of what I am saying.”

.

~  Oscar Wilde

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

clever

so smart

mentally quick, resourceful

showing inventiveness and skill

ingenious

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

it has stopped raining

sunny skies

humidity builds

.

Poem:

.

ha, ha, ha
laughing is a positive
wa, wa, wa
crying is a negative

most souls live somewhere in the middle
no crying, no laughing, no playing the fiddle
the fortunate live life on the positive side
never forgetting when they have cried

shed a crocodile tear for the ignorant
guard your ego with motivations innocent
laugh at the pompous clowns know as politicians
sympathize with the many who suffer untreated addictions

the world will go on with or without us
even the best are just another bozo on the bus
laughing with but not at others
we are all siblings from different mothers

ha, ha, ha
laughing is contagious
wa, wa, wa
crying is courageous

The Colors Change

.

“Life’s like

a painters palette,

just when you’ve got

everything worked out

the colours change”

.

~ Benny Bellamacina

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

black

darkest colour

absence of light

while over the rainbow

white

.

Haiku:

.

birds migrating south

can winter be far behind

seasonal cycle

.

.

.

Poem:

.

lived in the negative
could never see the positive
the brain is on backward
the emotions fractured

one was never enough
morally never grew up
selfish and self-centered
the mouth was uncensored

suicide was always an option
rage on the verge of eruption
an existence lived in purgatory
fodder for a horrible short story

shifted gears, took it out of reverse
told that life is not a permanent curse
followed the suggestions of a few
found a way of living that was new

the road still has the same pot holes
easy to miss with God at the controls
it’s easy to be serious only part time
dance, sing, laugh, love,
enjoy the rhyme . . .
