A Gift

.

A book

is a gift

you can open

again and again.”

.

~ Garrison Keillor

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

swing

jazz type

to and fro

go the other way

sway

.

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

.

we all need someone

love, the grandest emotion

a reason to live

.

Poem:

.

along came the Coronavirus
delivered to man by the God Osiris
mostly it picked on the elderly
those who were compromised medically

Communist China was the original source
their deception added to the eventual course
the WHO added more misery to the woes
but, the free world were formidable foes

mitigation was begun by social isolation
economies paralized by the duration
in some arenas it was politics as usual
the far left proved themselves very delusional

eventually with scientific and human resolve
the Covid-19 pandemic was finally solved

Love and Fantasy

.

“Love

and

fantasy,

go hand

in hand.”

.

~ Marc Chagall

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

reality

does exist

cannot be argued

what is happening now

actuality

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

afraid to emote

someone may laugh at me

stuff unknown feelings

 

a life lived in confusion

was it love or lust ? ? ?

.

Poem:

.

chaos ruling
politics above common sense
who do they think they are fooling
can anyone see through the pretence

police action, conflict, a war by any name
always has the other side to blame
kind thoughts dissipating into thin air
real compassion is truly rare

words arranged and rearranged like a flower bouquet
too many choices, like on a Swedish buffet
a literal smorgasbord ending with a chocolate fountain
the next challenge always a bigger, higher mountain

was there anyone who knew what
or was it just another rhyming couplet
the poem is always forcing the rhyme
while our lives are running out of time

it is only a problem, if you make it one
if anything at all makes sense, you have already won
