A Passion

.

“With me

poetry

has not been

a purpose,

but a passion.

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.

.

mead

pale ale

drunk by peers

mixed with bock beer

brewed

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

drugs and alcohol

mind and body impairing

stuffing the feelings

.

Poem:

.

just another emotional test
her mate, his love, was laid to rest
no need to hide how we feel
sobriety has taught us how to deal

share the feelings with a group of friends
the forlorn anguished soul to cleanse
get up, move on, try to help another
every soul is your God given brother

have gratitude for the good times past
accept that nothing in this world will last
work your program, seek peace of mind
to everyone, including yourself, be kind

feel the feelings, go with the flow
live in the light, avoid the shadow
be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
living a life that is happy, joyous and carefree

Quiet Please

.

.

“Poetry is

the least imposition

on silence

in a world

of chatter.”

.

~ Marvin Bell

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

talk

ignoring reticence

dominating the conversation

pompous know it all

chatter

.

Haiku:

.

blossoms are blooming

natures perpetual song

bees and butterflies

.

Poem:

.

some talk to hear themselves talk
some chatter because they fear the silence
the noise doesn’t help them walk the walk
emotionally there is no balance

it is not the words spoken
it is the actions that count
all riders need a token
many quandaries to surmount

life is to grow up and change
become the best person you can be
many priorities we must rearrange
not me but you will be the key

seeking happy, joyous and free
serenity and peace of mind
when sobriety adorns your marquee
recovery is what you will find.

ME and the Boss
