Uniting

.

“Poetry is

the art of

uniting pleasure

with truth.”

.

― Samuel Johnson

.

.

Elfje:

.

noise

vulgar speech

display of ignorance

oaths among the stupid

swearing

.

Haiku:

.

God lives forever

time measured by the light year

man’s life but a blink

.

 

Poem:

.

can I tell a lie

grandiose ego I

makes me want to cry

the morals which I defy

 

Mother taught me right

the church made  me fear sin

the commandments I thought were trite

it was always more important to win

 

t’was instant gratification that I sought

never dreamt of the consequence

tried every sin that could be bought

the highs were far above common sense

 

struck sober by a God incident

was almost restored to sane thinking

the addiction was false imprisonment

controlled by habits that were stinking

 

to thine own self be true

a better way of living

a Higher Power to see me through

enjoying a life I thought was missing

 

I cannot tell a lie

I no longer want to be that bad guy

Remixed

.

.

“Poetry is

never abandon

it is only

remixed.”

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

almost

first loser

came in second

not quite good enough

excuses

.

Haiku:

.

blue waters sparkle

spawning fish return upstream

natures great mystery

.

Poem:

.

The rhythm of the loving heart
is synchronous with the Spirit of the Universe
a loving heart beats much louder in part
and is one that a Higher Power will gladly endorse

The loving heart creates harmonious echoes
that will be heard for many generations to come
the loving heart will make us heroes
no matter where we our intentions come from

The best loving heart is attached to a kind mind
allow your actions to teach by good example
the way happy, joyous lives are best defined
to assure that all of life’s rewards are ample

Peace of mind is the reward for doing your part
serenity is feeling the contented beat of a loving heart.
