The Experimental Life

.

“The world has

never favored

the experimental life.

It despises poets,

fanatics, prophets

and lovers.”

.
― Randolph Bourne

Elfje: Cinquain

.

hook

by crook

what the heck

nails on the paw

claw

.

Senryu:

,

lost in mornings mist

a question which way to turn

the mind is at sea

,

Poem:

.

so sad
they died so young
taken by the disease of addiction

I’m mad
so many songs to be sung
for some families a predisposition

granddad
the first to be stung
but not the first to suffer from the trip to perdition

dad
heard it from grandmother’s tongue
but he chose to ignore the dreaded admonition

son
much to young to see how the door swung
hopefully the last to suffer from this malediction

I’m glad
on the ladder there is one more rung
a twelve step program to keep the devil in remission

No Fear

.

.

Don’t

be afraid

of poetry.”

.

~ Clifton Fadiman

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

poet

who writ

don’t know it

but it does rhyme

verse

.

Senryu: 5 , 7 , 5 syllables with people and their emotions as a subject.

.

anger starts with fear

we didn’t get what we wanted

you took advantage

.

Poem:

.

gentle waves of warm water cover the feet
the sun providing a glorious bone warming heat
any day at the beach will soothe the soul
nature reinforcing that God is in control

evolution is such a marvelous thing
only the crazy to the past want to cling
revolution is not necessarily evolution
anarchy is never a very good solution

peace, make love not war
use science to give everyone more
think of the consequences, not just the profits
believe that the Creator knows more than the prophets

predicting the future we all must agree
it is as easy as following the greed
why listen to entertainers and TV show host
their agenda is not as friendly as Casper the Ghost

today, be kind, be loving and watch what you say
and when all else fails, take the time to pray
