The Longest Distance

.

“In philosophy,

as in politics,

the longest distance

between two points

is a straight line.”

.

~ Will Durant

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

draw
go over
make a mark
not a straight line
trace

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
acting silly helps
avoiding reality
tense emotions eased
.

Poem:
.

relax, listen to your inner guidance
God will talk to you in the silence
choose to listen which is the next right thing
God’s choir is provided when the angels sing

prayer and meditation really work
serenity and peace of mind a Godly perk
all efforts designed to bring a spiritual experience
from self will run riot to God’s will with obedience

the silence broken by the sounds of laughter
fitting in to a fellowship that we sought after
a place to learn what is the next right thing
experience, strength and hope which you may bring

work your program, walk the walk
from the heart whenever you may talk
be the person you Higher Power wants you to be
Honest, Open-minded, Willing and free

Poem:

.

it is alright to let your mind travel to far away lands
trips to a fantasyland that no one else understands
just remember to come home from time to time
unless your chosen vocation is being a street mime

those who think they are in control call it a daydream
hopefully your trips are not too frequently upstream
beware of the romantic delusion that verges upon lust
better to dream being rich and building a charitable trust

is it only the sick whose fantasies become nightmares
or was it what you ate that made you unawares
what of the seer whose mind cultivates premonitions
can anyone do it under the right set of conditions

must you make reservations to take these trips
must you pack a bag if you’re joining the apocalypse
let this rhyme stimulate your mind
and may all of your trips be one of a kind
