Nothing

“Poetry

makes

nothing

happen.”

but

and if

or what else

maybe is a possibility

Haiku:

seasons transition

resting roots, no leaves to feed

tree ring marks the year

Poem:

.

millions upon millions of life stories
some sad, some happy, most just boring
genre is what writers call categories
imagination is the mind exploring

romance, mystery, western, horror
is a book about history really nonfiction
can we believe a diary from the explorer
writing for many is just an addiction

poetry gives one the ability to fabricate
blue, black, purple, no need to color the lie
the author always wins his own debate
choose your own flavor for the pie in the sky

today I am the hero, tomorrow the goat
a wonderful life lived by my own anecdote

Exaltation Of The Mind

“A song is

the exaltation

of the mind

dwelling on eternal things,

bursting forth in the voice.”

― Thomas Aquinas

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

.

Cupid’s arrow strikes

the smitten don’t understand

is it love or lust

.

Poem:

.

sing a song of romance
love will give you the chance
for the one who receives your affection
mesmerized at first glance

the heart feels the inflection
the mind believes it is perfection
the whole world becomes satisfying
all things glow with a rosy reflection

passions arise which are gratifying
a steadfast devotion which is undying
love will give you the chance
don’t doubt, believe in the mystifying

love does not arrive by happenstance
God’s design includes all circumstance
