A True Poet

.

“He who draws noble delights

from sentiments of poetry

is a true poet,

though he has never written

a line in all his life.”

~ George Sand

poem

oral history

before written word

rhymes easy to remember

Haiku:

a bright sunny day

window view comfortable

winter’s chill outside

Poem:

.

mother cultivated the beautiful iris
from Spanish iris translates to mean rainbow
exquisite colors which remain nameless
captured in the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh

pleasurable emotions tied to beauty
all creation is in perfect balance
except for the crazy who are a little fruity
and those who went down the hole with Alice

the birds and the bees, nature’s splendor
the males awesome colors to attract a mate
the sitting female camouflaged to fool the predator
except for the nerd who can’t get a date

we guess the exception is there to keep the balance
a unique place for the wanna be, the pretender
what God has provided in normals absence
in a mother’s heart everyone is a contender

Rise Up And Soar

.

“I do not understand

the whole thrilling verse,

but I love the way poetry

turns ordinary words

into winged things

that rise up and soar!”

.

– Margarita Engle

Elfje: (Cinquain)

dare

to fly

to be you

rise up and soar

individual

.

Haiku:

.

birds rise up and soar

escaping the predator

survival defense

.

Poem:
.

who doesn’t like the challenge
the imbecile, the retarded
the emotional with too much baggage
the coward with feelings guarded

those from the gene pool discarded  . . .
dare to be a man among men
strong enough to take out the garbage
willing to be wrong every now and then

be willing to define your role
know that it is OK to share a feeling
understand that God gave you a soul
emotions are not for concealing

who gains from acting macho
double dealing with someones heart
a ghost who is sordid and hollow
an ego that is far from smart

be the man who makes your mother proud
a loving person who can care and share
stand head and shoulders above the crowd
a man of faith, a wish and a prayer

have a goal to make this world a better place
be willing to accept all of God’s grace.
