How Do I Love Thee

.

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth

and breadth and height

My soul can reach.”

cost

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

.

feeling kinda blue

I really miss seeing you

your smiles make my day

.

Poem:

.

easy words
a lesson for everyone
something about the bees and the birds
making learning fun

no subliminal innuendo
shooting straight from the hip
no need for a big crescendo
pictures from a comic strip

short words
a story for everyone
something about the ladies and lords
making life fun

choose the words that cannot tell a lie
straight from the stiff upper lip
put the ice cream atop your apple pie
doing a roundover into a backflip

long hard words
impressing no one
something about measuring wood in cords
if you can read you have already won

be a winner, read my poems every Saturday and Sunday
always written in short easy words

Gushes Poetry

“I opened my veins.

Unstoppably life spurts out

with no remedy.

Now I set out

bowls and plates.

Every bowl will be shallow.

Every plate will be small.

And overflowing their rims,

into the black earth

to nourish the rushes,

unstoppably without cure,  gushes poetry …”

~ Marina Tsvetaeva

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

shallow

not deep

a transparent person

motives on the surface

superficial

.

Haiku:

.

on oceans high tides

moon makes its monthly cycle

sailors set their sails

.

Poem:

.

it’s easy to have an awesome day
just be careful of what you say

be nice to the little old lady next door
guidance from a Higher Power implore
wants or needs, be careful what you ask for

believe that souls exist without colors
healthy children respect their mothers
the happiest treat everyone like brothers
sharing unconditional love with others

be patient with those who are innocent
be tolerant of those who are ignorant
forgive the eclectic who think they are different

just be the person God wants you to be
enjoying a life that is happy, joyous and free

.

Comment:

God’s will for me is to: be nice, be loving, be patient, be tolerant,

be forgiving and just be the person He wants me to be.
