Make Up A Rhyme

.

“I can’t even

make up a rhyme

about an umbrella,

let alone death

and life

and eternal peace.”

.

― Knut Hamsun, Mysteries

Elfje:                  (Cinquain)

.

peace

conflict avoidance

patience, tolerance, forgiveness

synchronized with the Uni-verse

serenity

.

Haiku:

.

morning to quiet

heat is already stifling

dog days have arrived

.

Poem:

.

death, life and eternal peace
searching for the proverbial golden fleece
life and death are gauranteed
fleece and peace need a superhuman deed

the poem makes up the rhyme
the poet just selects the time
the subject is in the language
knowing a lot of words is an advantage

today’s inspiration is umbrella
not Mary Poppins but Cinderella
searching for the charming prince
rarer than the flowering quince

I’m glad that poems need only rhyme not reason
the thought police may call it treason
Orwell’s incitement was done in prose
will it ever happen, nobody knows

many a poem ramble on forever
short and sweet is enjoyably more clever
