Elevate The Soul

.

“To elevate

the soul,


poetry


is necessary.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje: (Cinquain)

soul

you are

from the mind

what’s in your heart

life

.

Lune: REVERSED 3-5-3

poetry

is necessary

to live

.

Poem:

.

it is nine AM and the spam callers have started
intruding into my life that has been uncharted
empathy, everyone has to make a living
sympathy, it is my part to be forgiving

enjoying chaos, loving the tempest in the tea cup
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
the backward brain cannot make up its mind
to God we are all just one of a kind

time will move on, with or without me
a drifting raft in the middle of a large sea
envious of those who own a motor
debating my impact as a one in a million voter

is there a subliminal meaning to any of this drivel
something to do with my head being mounted on a swivel
rumbling, mumbling, stumbling, through one day at a time
can perverse thinking be a punishable crime

pardon me but I am just having some fun
trying not to get caught while being on the run

A Frozen Moment

.

“A poem is

a frozen moment

melted by each reader

for themselves

to flow into

the here and now.”

.

― Hilde Domin

.

.

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

now

not when

watching the time

fluttering feelings confused thoughts

anticipation

.

Haiku:

.

rain comes to a stop

everywhere a mud puddle

child’s summer playground

.

Poem:

.

baseball and apple pie
American institutions
under a vast blue sky
peaceful  revolutions

home of the free
home of the brave
from sea to shining sea
Old Glory is proud to wave

states rights stay home on  the range
central government unsurpassed
liberal wants to change
conservative holds on to the past

while seeking the compromise
life goes on
everyone reaching for the gold  ring prize
while the next generation receives the baton

heading toward a moral firestorm
can the nation bring about world peace
immigrants must learn to conform
if we all behaved we would need fewer police

today I pray
please pray with me
may we find a safer way
to let the good be free . . .
