Over and Done

.

"Dont

over finish

your work.

There is value

to done.”

.

~   Paul Gauguin

.

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

.

work

to act

make it run

while you have fun

play

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

weather is perfect
a time to go out and play
beautiful day

ignoring world chaos
democracy is alive

.

Poem:

.

sunshine and rainbows, another beautiful day
the lucky have nothing to do but play
everyone can enjoy nature at it’s best
given life, every soul has been blessed

precipitation and wind, the weather is miserable
only the ducks may deem it considerable
the weather is good as a conversation piece
guess right or wrong the odds will never increase

the smart are patient knowing that water is life
the tolerant are able to avoid the strife
the wise do not discuss politics or religion
being careful not to expose the family addiction

ignore the weather it is about to change
most opinions are useless and usually strange
today, love, forgive, be patient, tolerant and kind
let only peace and happiness cross your mind

What Can Be Explained

.

.

“What can be

explained

is not poetry.

.

~ William Butler Yeats

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

prose

not poems

stream of conscious

stoned hippies ruined poetry

meaningless

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

how fast is the mind

speed of light

to quick to forget

.

Poem:

.

they read the same paragraph
there were two different opinions
they saw the same photograph
neither had the same visions

who is to judge right or wrong
as long as nobody gets hurt
providing the price is just a song
given that the first course is dessert

how important is it anyhow
this too shall pass
does it make one raise the eyebrow
does it make you first in class

be tolerant,  allow others to be right
be patient, prayers are answered in God’s time
be forgiving, be willing to give up the fight
be generous, brother, can you spare a dime

be the person God wants you to be
a  soul that is happy, joyous and free.
