Trifles

.

“Trifles make

perfection,

and perfection

is no trifle.”

.

~ Michelangelo

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

.

plain

most clean

no foul dirt

as God made it

pure

St Valentines Day
his unconditional love
a channel for God

you too can be His channel
just love without a limit

.

Poem:

.

failed, misplaced, skipped, omitted, lost
you can’t retrieve the past at any cost
don’t blame the memory for getting old
it is mostly the lies that we have been told

hindsight tells me that I missed my prime
either misused or squandered most of my time
no use crying over all of the spilled milk
a sows ear can’t be made into a purse of silk

forget the past, let the hair down, have some fun
soak up the sun, even if the work is not done
time is an element that man will not conquer
it’s our perception what makes time a monster

today, let time manage it’s own image
are you alive ?,
just thank God for that privilege

The Use Of Words

.

“One great

use of words

is to hide

our thoughts.”

.

~ Voltaire

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

thoughts

mental images

actions and reactions

things I might do

visions

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

what I am saying

may not be what I’m thinking

if you only knew

beating around the big bush

intentionally deceived

.

Poem:

.

living a dream
merrily rowing upstream
living a fairytale
forever chasing the holy grail

perpetually stalking illusions
thinking about not growing old
“whatever” is my cup of tea
maybe it will be filled with fool’s gold

reality check
the spaceship has landed
could we be a smaller speck
let your imagination be expanded

knowing that our lives are but a blip in time
understanding that even the powerful made a very small dent
before they know it most have passed their prime
for some each day is one entire event

for the older souls time is but a blur
is evolution the path of least resistance
can or will a world peace ever occur
will there ever be a meaning to our existence

firstly, are we asking the right question
will there ever be a lasting impression
seeking the answers propels us forward
what is , is what a Higher Power has ordered
