A Magic Fairy Tale

.

“You see

the magic in

a fairy tale,

you can face

the future.”

.

~ Danielle Steel

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

.

look

face up

side to side

from back to front

pose

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

dreary stark winter

dark low clouds are depressing

natures long cold nap

.

Poem:

.

Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland
fabulous stories that are so grand
Wizard of Oz, Winnie-the-Pooh
forever and forever, always new

stories that piqued the imagination
giving little minds a good foundation
Charlotte’s Web, Goodnight Moon,
And the dish ran away with the spoon

those that read had a real childhood
Cat In The Hat, The Little Engine That Could
stories with  lessons we needed to learn
from good and evil the wisdom to discern

may the next generation not get lost
face in the screen with their fingers crossed
support your library, give books a home
ignorance is what lead to the fall of Rome

Haiku On Twitter

“So I don’t think

I’ll make Poet Laureate,

but I swear I’m not

twisted and bitter

If finely-wrought talents

don’t weigh in the balance,

I can always write

haiku on Twitter.”

.

― Rosy Cole

.

Elfje:       (Cinquain)

.

form

verses function

prose and rhymes

written from the heart

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

written words of praise

cannot explain the seasons

nature or reasons

.

Poem

.

maybe I am just a lunatic
the moon looming as a subject
the witch crossing its face on a broomstick
my feeble mind in a total disconnect

waiting for the cow to cross over
saw the fork elope with the spoon
rover, rover cross through the clover
if it were June would I swoon or croon

childhood memories in a scramble
events twisted by the fragile ego
emotional harms overshadow the gambol
fantasies to celebrate the grandiose libido

a dark stormy cloud obscures the man
guess I’ll return to believing I’m Peter Pan
