A Separate Experience

.

.

Literature is not

a picture of life,

but is a separate experience

with its own kind of flow

and enhancement.”

red

the stripes

the stars white

a flag to honor

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

Poets Were Daydreamers Too

.

“Freud thought that

a psychosis was

a waking dream,

and that poets were

daydreamers too,

but I wonder if the reverse

is not as often true,

and that madness is a fiction

lived in like a rented house”

madness

genetically predispositioned

post traumatic stress

going off one’s rocker

insanity

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

successful hours

daylight wanes

prayers end the day

Poem:

.

politics and religion can ruin small talk
most people are not qualified to discuss either
their lame excuse is having a mental block
even the smartest can be an underachiever

say the word poetry and watch them squirm
remembering hippies and beatniks reading prose
the genre doesn’t even appeal to every bookworm
rhyme is left to the lover who wants to propose

seems that everyone is just too serious
or just too stupid, enjoying movies that have no plot
beyond ordinary understanding they believe the mysterious
going a lifetime of never having an original thought

the sad lament is that most of them are politicians
praying that they may find some legitimate positions
