Fill It Up

.

“It’s just endless
what you can learn from
a single work of art.
You can fill up the crevices
of your life,
the cracks of your life,
the places where
the mortar comes out
and falls away-
you can fill it up with
the love of art.’

.

~  Vincent Price

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.
scare
cause fear
shock the nerves
make the heart jump
spook                                    (What Vincent Price was know for.)
.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
spring colors blossom
refreshed after winters sleep
birds and bees arrive

.

Poem:

.

seeing red, totally vivid
ignorant actions that make one  livid
anger is another form of fear
ulterior motives made unclear

emotions that must be explained
to keep the soul from being drained
the lessons to teach patience and tolerance
situations that require our total sufferance

wisdom achieved by learning to listen
uncovering motives that were hidden
Spiritual progress became our ultimate goal
rediscovering the value of our soul

no longer red, what we see is clear
serenity and peace devoid of fear

“One must

read poetry

with one’s

nerves.”

― Wallace Stevens

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

feel

the rhythm

the earth speaks

mother nature waxes poetic

sinews

.

Haiku:

.

rainbows perfect arc

leading to the pot of gold

puddles and flowers

.

Poem:

.

thank you soldier
I live a life or ease
with epaulets upon your shoulder
my freedom is your guarantee

from the American Revolution
to today’s police action
you defend the Constitution
democracy your sanction

only one day a year we celebrate you
that effort certainly pales compared to what you do
today we thank you on our blog
hoping it will become an eternal epilogue

Thanks to all who sacrificed and all who serve.
