Stupider

.

“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

.

~C. S. Lewis

.

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

.

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

flaw

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

.

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

The Face Of God

.

“To love

another person

is to see the

face of God.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

face

look to

fight to win

see what is ahead

confront

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

love is in the air

the atmosphere is pleasing

beautiful people

a gleeful wedding party

everyone has the feeling

.

Poem:

.

every thought is a prayer
a question or an answer to declare
no need to kneel beside the bed
close the eyes and clear the head

gratitude must be a part of the morning prayer
identifying, trying not to compare
challenging a faith that comes and goes
a soul that doubts what others propose

my whole life has been a wish and a prayer
the outcome, I deem, has been unfair
in God’s time all prayers are answered
like wildflowers his blessings scattered

it is alright to borrow someone else’s prayer
knowing that a prayer will go everywhere
some may receive its benefits, some may not
what is nice is that you gave them a thought

be careful what you pray for,
you might just get it
