Let Your Soul Heal

.

“Give it air

& let the scar

on your soul

reveal itself,

because,

like the body,

it too was made

to heal itself.”

oodles, oodles and oodles, more goodies galore
what chocoholic could want for anything more
a true paradise is the bakery in a candy store
the only requirement is that you fit inside the door

put the candy along side the check out aisle
guilt will go away when you promise to walk another mile
remember to clean your teeth before you smile
for the obsessed there can never be a stockpile

just buy larger size clothing when you start to get plump
denying your passion will only make you a grump
only the young can do the long, broad or high jump
besides, who wants to be as healthy as Donald Trump

so I’ll have one more chocolate, if you please
just the weird can live on cottage cheese

An Ideal

“Every poet…

finds himself born

in the midst of prose.

He has to struggle

from the littleness

and obstruction of

an actual world

into the freedom

and infinitude of

an ideal.”

.

― Thomas Carlyle

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

unique

that place

like no other

paradise of one’s own

utopia

Haiku:

.

fog cascades surreal
fairy dust covers snails trails
morning dew sparkles

Poem:

.

I love tic-tac-toe
the game played with Xs and Os
Xs are for the hugs I crave
Os are for the kisses I gave

the British call it noughts and crosses
a stuffy way to put love in boxes
I guess a cold handshake will have to do
what do they do to the girl they want to woo

a special derisive thank you to Hallmark
knowing that love needed a renewed spark
for keeping St. Valentine’s legend alive
and a bigger business to contrive

can’t forget the sweets for the sweets
Russel-Stover and Godiva provide the eats
splurge, start the diet tomorrow
another good day for remorse and sorrow

this year, ignore the commercial
be special, love special
not just for that special day
but for each and every day

and in every way
