A Separate Experience

.

.

Literature is not

a picture of life,

but is a separate experience

with its own kind of flow

and enhancement.”

.


~ William Stafford

red

the stripes

the stars white

a flag to honor

blue

Haiku:

.

flowers need water
lack of rain is apparent
what is God planning

.

Poem:

.

those who can’t, teach
critics who can’t, preach
the human form of the leech

it is so easy to pick on others
done by those who don’t like their mothers
the loners who can’t be like brothers

governments just wanting to placate the herd
politically correct and gender neutral preferred
unfortunately love has become a passé word

woe is the man whose ego is right sized
by the really sick he is totally despised
as a milk toast he is characterized

keep on praying, don’t be afraid
big money has manufactured this charade
they know that there is no free in free trade

there will come a day that no one can predict
one can only hope that it will be a peaceful conflict
hopefully it is the winning side that peace has picked

today, try to make your own choices
be wary of the devil and his many voices
don’t let social media control your devices

don’t teach, don’t preach, share the love
vote for those who believe that there is a God above
and just stay out of the way when push comes to shove

Today’s Word

.

“For last year’s words

belong to

last year’s language

And next year’s words

await another voice.”

~ T.S. Eliot

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

trash

man’s refuse

unneeded and unwanted

a treasure for nobody

garbage

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

listen everyone

pending storm

very quiet night

.

Poem:     sonnet: the weather

.

thunder rolls past every afternoon
daily showers bring humidity
gulf winds bring in the monsoon
stifling weather breeds stupidity

lightning kills more than all other storms
It never rains on a golf course
best time to dig for fishing worms
rain cannot wash away remorse

weather the topic, safe to discuss
accept what it is without making a fuss
some like it  cool, some like it hot
easy, just move to your ideal spot

change is the only thing you can expect
without having to be politically correct
