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

“Whenever you think

or you believe

or you know,

you’re a lot of

other people:

but the moment you feel,

you’re nobody-but-yourself.”              ~ E. E. Cummings

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

feel

to think

what you deem

guess what it is

sense

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

forever in love

many decades together

God meant it to be

Poem:

.

my poetry, my way
in spite of what the experts say
after all it is my story
not written for praise or glory

sometimes true, sometime not
never done with any forethought
words picked at random from my brain
if I don’t let them out, I’ll go insane

allowing the poem to find it’s way
in spite of what the experts say
keep it short and simple to please my fans
me and my friends with short attention spans

always dreaming about writing the epic
am I lazy or to the reader empathetic
or possibly the satisfaction of just getting it done
feelings of true happiness while having fun

there, just finished with another one . . .
