Dreams Gave Both

.

At Night Love said,

“Wake still and think of me,”

Sleep, “Close your eyes

till break of day,”

But Dreams came by and

smilingly Gave both to

Love and Sleep their way.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

mad

mind slipped

away from reality

irresponsible inappropriate social behaviors

crazy

.

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

.

heart felt petty love

the verge of insanity

the reason to love

.

Poem:

.

when does infatuation become love
does love mature as we grow older
questions answered when push comes to shove
true love is in the heart of the beholder

the poet uses love as a subject because
love can be whatever the poet wants it to be
for many ailments love is the probable cause
always and ever, to be true love it must be free

the heart knows the difference between love and like
love is different things to different people
love does not travel well on a high speed turnpike
life is love in one long continuous sequel

healthy relations use the same definition of love
the happiest use a guidance from above

Riches

.

“I have

no riches

but my thoughts,

Yet these are

wealth enough

for me”

.

~ Sara Teasdale

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

memories

emotions shared

time spent together

common bonds, mutual pleasures

riches

.

Haiku:

.

winter hot, spring cold

natures rhythm run amuck

unseasonable

.

Poem:

.

what stirs the emotions
fluffy white clouds against an azure blue sky
the birds and the bees singing and buzzing
should I laugh or should I cry

do hearts have feelings
is it sad or am I happy
tears of remorse, tears of joy
must the words always be sappy

events accompanied by somesthesia
visible, audible, aromatic or tactile
vivid memories and thoughts subliminal
will they continue when we become senile

are feelings sensual or are they intuitive
are passions the product of nurtured or nature
the sick shut down the emotional stream
no longer human, a thoughtless cold creature

be moved, be human, enjoy God’s creations
His greatest works are emotionally inspiring
