A Character

.

“Then you are a poet?’

she asked, fingering

the flyer in her pocket.

No not at all,

he waved his hand.

I am merely a character

in a poem.”

hand

pass out

give to each

play cards for fun

deal

.

Senryu:

.

her expectations

she will cry over spilt milk

she wants what she wants

.

Poem:

.

no rhyme, no reason, no character
the poem had no relationship with an ancient mariner
the words just stumbled along looking for a home
the poem even sought advice from the garden gnome

even the writing muse shook her head
she said no line could be writ with a golden thread
despite the obstacles the poem kept trudging along
the page had to be filled come right or wrong

and then in a dream the character appeared
a hero who said there was nothing to be feared
said she, the words you seek are a dime a dozen
and most are as enjoyable as a kissing cousin

the poem was ecstatic, giggling with delight
the ideas kept coming day and night
adieu the hero said, my job is done here
she said the poems model should be Shakespeare

so is this a sonnet, to be or not to be
probably. with just an extra quatrain, as you can see

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
