Masters Of The World

.

.

“On the shining yards of heaven

See a wider dawn unfurled. . . .

The eternal slaves of beauty

Are the masters of the world.”

~ Bliss Carman

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

master

over all

leader by name

land, sea, air, fire

lord

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

dysfunctional fun

locking children out of house

who gets the last laugh

.

Poem:

.

do you only see the ugly
do you only see the beautiful
is your life just awfully fugly
is your life an enjoyable musical

life is an emotional roller coaster
up and down, slow and fast
is your best look printed on a wanted poster
do you fit into a typical typecast

does your life fit your personality
does your personality fit your life
can you claim a dual modality
how well do you handle strife

can’t answer any of the questions above
who really cares
it’s always your life to do with as you love
upstairs or downstairs

Suggestiveness


Nobody, I think,

ought to read poetry,

or look at pictures or statues,

who cannot find a great deal

more in them than the poet

or artist has actually expressed.

Their highest merit is suggestiveness.

– Nathaniel Hawthorne

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

interpretation

artist intent

imaginative figurative  portrayal

nothing that is literal

ambiguity

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

beautiful lady

classic poise

man’s greatest desire

.

Poem:

.

does God have a heart
does He think and feel
is He above being smart
is He really, really, real

why does everything have an opposite
will good possibly overcome evil
could hate or love predominate
shall man ever learn to be civil

if we had the answers
would it matter anyways
everything succumbs to cancers
does God count in days

is this life to be enjoyed ? ? ?
if so, ignore the answers and questions
know that the end we cannot avoid
and just follow mothers directions
