Get Drunk

.
“One should always be drunk.

That’s all that matters…

But with what?

With wine, with poetry,

or with virtue,

as you chose.

But get drunk.”

.

~ Charles Baudelaire

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

hesitate

pregnant pause

take your time

maybe yes, maybe no

procrastination

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

admitted the crime

ought to be a civil law

just laughed at the judge

 

people take themselves serious

can’t put a price on feelings

.

Poem:

.

the opposite of bad is good
the place where most heroes stood

a life lived with conscientious integrity
never a question about the morality
a head held high with dignity

a smile, a kind word, always exuding goodness
every decision and action guided by virtuousness
promises made, promises kept, trustworthiness
to a Higher Power given his righteousness

every days effort completed with propriety
simple, sincere and transparent honesty
every soul treated with decency

accolades and cudos won with merit
traits that all of our sons should inherit

Not Knowing

.

“Though I play at

the edges of knowing,

truly I know our part

is not knowing,

but looking, and touching,

and loving”

.

― Mary Oliver

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

misplaced

can’t find

lost in space

how important is it

squandered

.

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

.

for crying out loud

how upset can you make me

will you please stop it

.

Poem:

.

Dreams are who you want to be
Who you are is in your heart
the happiest soul possesses a hidden beauty
your willingness to be you will set you apart

take pride in whatever you do
even doing nothing takes a bit of talent
don’t be a person that one can see through
just choose to be a spirit that is gallant

it is no sin to reinvent yourself
especially when you go from bad to good
a person not afraid to come down off of the shelf
avoid the excuses to have, could, would and should

let today be your day to really shine
no need to wait for the stars to align
