Masters Of The World

.

.

“On the shining yards of heaven

See a wider dawn unfurled. . . .

The eternal slaves of beauty

Are the masters of the world.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

master

over all

leader by name

land, sea, air, fire

lord

.

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

.

dysfunctional fun

locking children out of house

who gets the last laugh

.

Poem:

.

do you only see the ugly
do you only see the beautiful
is your life just awfully fugly
is your life an enjoyable musical

life is an emotional roller coaster
up and down, slow and fast
is your best look printed on a wanted poster
do you fit into a typical typecast

does your life fit your personality
does your personality fit your life
can you claim a dual modality
how well do you handle strife

can’t answer any of the questions above
who really cares
it’s always your life to do with as you love
upstairs or downstairs

Money, Money, Money

“There’s no money

in poetry,

but there’s

no poetry

in money, either”

― Robert Graves

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

miracles

unexplainable coincidences

against all odds

answer to a prayer

blessings

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

undeserved blessings

miracles

manna from heaven

Poem:

.

up and down
emotions on a merry-go-round
reaching for the golden ring
riding on the yoyo string

good times bring the happy
setbacks deliver the crappy
the sick have absolutely no control
no escape from their funky hole

the shrink guesses, then writes
good drugs dispensed to calm the nights
the crazy will misuse and abuse
trying to make sense of Mother Goose

the addictive personality blooms
inspiration for sad cartoons
depression brings on thoughts of suicide
neuroses ebbing and flowing with the tide

feelings of love totally abandoned
conscious reality touched at random
who knows how many quietly suffer
battling demons who are much tougher

patience and tolerance, more is learned each day
if man survives, a cure may be found, we pray
