Cold Ideas And Brain Dreams

.

“He was weary of himself,

of cold ideas and brain dreams.

Life a poem?

Not when you went about

forever poetizing

about your own life

instead of living it.”

.

~ Jens Peter Jacobsen

brain

floating cloud

letting thoughts materialize

mostly selfish, sometimes not

dreams

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

again, in God’s time

Mother Earth wobbles and shakes

ages come and go

man’s feeble concept of time

what’s a million years or so

.

Poem:
.

can’t carry a tune
my bucket is holy
can’t jump over the moon
everything gets done slowly

only color I can mix is brown
every picture is out of focus
at my best I was a not funny clown
my attempts at writing were atrocious

at school I struggled to be average
mumbling, stumbling, lived a boring life
at work they all used me as leverage
took three tries to get a good wife

can’t figure out rhyme or reason
my best guess is usually wrong
can’t decide on a favorite season
never, ever could I name that song

so I can’t, no reason to be blue
because what I can, is to love you

Nothing Changes

.

“All the new thinking

is about loss.

In this it resembles

all the old thinking”

.

― Robert Hass

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

different

most unusual

every living thing

not like anything else

unique

.

Haiku:

.

earth slowly changes

too big for man to affect

learn from the lessons
