No Wings

“The man

with no

imagination

has no

wings.”

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

wings

red bird

mate for life

from here to there

fly

came to play baseball
World series in the fall
the best head to head

can’t bet against the money
big market teams advantage

Poem:

.

remember the poem with the made up words
emulating e.e. cummings was so absurd
the story about the bird who thought he was bold
the real truth, whole truth, can now be told

the bird had wings but no imagination
we  think he was influenced by a strong libation
instead of thinking, he should have flew
that night he was the main ingredient in the stew

now he is part of a real poem with words that rhyme
and the star of a story that is true some of the time
poems that take readers to an imaginary paradise
desert first is peaches and cream with sugar and spice

poetry that puts the mind into motion
the sounds of waves on the shore of the ocean
poetic license to create something new
hopefully read by more than just you

Today’s Word

.

“For last year’s words

belong to

last year’s language

And next year’s words

await another voice.”

~ T.S. Eliot

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

trash

man’s refuse

unneeded and unwanted

a treasure for nobody

garbage

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

listen everyone

pending storm

very quiet night

Poem:     sonnet: the weather

.

thunder rolls past every afternoon
daily showers bring humidity
gulf winds bring in the monsoon
stifling weather breeds stupidity

lightning kills more than all other storms
It never rains on a golf course
best time to dig for fishing worms
rain cannot wash away remorse

weather the topic, safe to discuss
accept what it is without making a fuss
some like it  cool, some like it hot
easy, just move to your ideal spot

change is the only thing you can expect
without having to be politically correct
