Little Men

.

.

“Up the airy mountain,

Down the rushy glen,

We daren’t go a-hunting

For fear of little men.”

.

~ William Allingham

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

fairies

magical powers

unseen garden gnomes

Mother Nature’s private guards

angels

.

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

.

angels we have called

please protect us from ourselves

help us be grateful

.

Poem:

.

welcome, welcome to my party
I hope that you will not be tardy
place cards eliminate your seating decisions
there are noisemakers and remembrance ribbons

for this party there is no rhyme or reason
just friends meeting to celebrate the season
there is no dress code, no gifts to bring
you’ve been invited even if you cannot sing

we’ll gather in the meadow idyllic
laughter assured as we attempt to speak poetic
God forbid that it should rain
keeping an eye on the barn’s weather vane

the pastry chef, her name is Echo
her voice sounds like the TV Gecko
she baked a huge white cake supreme
stuffed with a ton of chocolate cream

relax, delight, let your worries at home
please turn off that annoying cell phone
bring an attitude of gratitude to employ
you have been granted this life, so enjoy

Ah, I Remember

.

“Ah, distinctly I remember

it was in the bleak December

And each separate dying ember

wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly I wished the morrow;

— vainly I had sought to borrow

From my books surcease of sorrow

— sorrow for the lost Lenore.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

pleasure

feels good

free from guilt

can make everyone happy

delight

.

Haiku:

.

winter snows cover

Mother Nature takes her nap

cold silence prevails

.

Poem:

.

with a God given aptitude
and a very positive attitude
one cannot but have gratitude
for living a life of love
tolerance we can duplicate
patience which we can educate
forgiveness a spirit to elevate
guidance from above

beginning the day with reflections
strength to share kind affections
courage to follow His directions
being able  to love
doing nothing that is immoral
learning to live with thinking abnormal
accepting that no one is immortal
inspiration from above

no fear of being secluded
resentments finally concluded
in society a joy to be included
glad to share the love
given a pathway to recovery
relief from all of the drudgery
every breath a God given luxury
blessings from above
