Useful

.

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

.

~  Ogden Nash

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
.
verse
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise
hymn
.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

Angels In Disguise

.

“Be not

inhospitable

to strangers,

lest they be

angels in disguise.”

.

~ W B Yeats

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

.

death

last breath

to the end

those left to grieve

dead

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.

he loved her so much
spirits entwined to the end
he was left to grieve

a generation now gone
time does not wait for a soul

.

Poem:

.

Death, the poets greatest fear
the thought of losing someone so dear
always searching for the meaning of life
the heart wounded by an emotional knife

why that person, why not me
the only human with whom I could agree
their unwavering love knew no limits
souls that were touched by holy spirits

never alone, their echoes live in our hearts
lonely because the laughter never starts
unknown triggers renew the grief
inner turmoil caused by an emotional thief

let the tears flow, they cleanse the soul
because we know for whom the bells toll

.
