A Loving Heart

“A loving heart

is the beginning

of all knowledge.”

smile

pretty face

eyes that sparkle

a very happy heart

laugh

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

peace and happiness

joyful bliss

by doing God’s will

.

Poem:

.

a hot muggy summers night
air so thick it hazes the moonlight
crickets and frogs don’t seem to mind
what a wonderful world God has designed

man’s so vain he thinks he can affect the weather
it’s Mother Nature who puts things together
evolution caused by the Earth’s wobble
man is but one percent of the climate bobble

the earth’s crust is constantly shifting
the tectonic plates are always drifting
man’s existence is but a blip on the Earth’s timeline
for what little we know we can thank Einstein

who cares if New York City sinks under the sea
that Saint Andreas fault sets California free
is there an Orwellian world in our future
or will civilization flush itself down the sewer

will man’s ego still reign supreme
or will we wake up and learn that it was all a dream

A Justification

.

“Poetry had always seemed

something I could turn to

in need – an emergency exit,

a lifebuoy, as well as

a justification.”

.

~ John Fowles

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

justification

wrong explanation

building plausible excuses

legitimizing the illegitimate reason

alibi

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

flowers aroma

heady scent

draws pollinators

.

Poem:

.

stop it . . .turn off that damned TV
it was entertainment, now it’s propaganda
even football was reduced to a bended knee
aren’t you privy to the left wing memoranda

the Lone Ranger will never ride again
gone are Howdy Doody and Clarabell
no moral message, nothing but a brain drain
now, everything ends with a violent bombshell

we were warned by Orwell in 1984
social media has become our Big Brother
not an honest soul remains to keep score
time to pray for a fairy godmother

be a friend, have a friend, do something nice
good deeds travel fast with no purchase price
