Little Men

.

.

“Up the airy mountain,

Down the rushy glen,

We daren’t go a-hunting

For fear of little men.”

.

~ William Allingham

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

fairies

magical powers

unseen garden gnomes

Mother Nature’s private guards

angels

.

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

.

angels we have called

please protect us from ourselves

help us be grateful

.

Poem:

.

welcome, welcome to my party
I hope that you will not be tardy
place cards eliminate your seating decisions
there are noisemakers and remembrance ribbons

for this party there is no rhyme or reason
just friends meeting to celebrate the season
there is no dress code, no gifts to bring
you’ve been invited even if you cannot sing

we’ll gather in the meadow idyllic
laughter assured as we attempt to speak poetic
God forbid that it should rain
keeping an eye on the barn’s weather vane

the pastry chef, her name is Echo
her voice sounds like the TV Gecko
she baked a huge white cake supreme
stuffed with a ton of chocolate cream

relax, delight, let your worries at home
please turn off that annoying cell phone
bring an attitude of gratitude to employ
you have been granted this life, so enjoy

When Combined

.

“Music, when combined

with a pleasurable idea,

is poetry;

music, without the idea,

is simply music;

the idea, without the music,

is prose,

from its very definitiveness.”

.

― Edgar Allan Poe

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

prose

no rhyme

very little reason

random thoughts, random words

didacticism *

.

Haiku:

.

seasons wet or dry

the tropics endless summer

muggy hot or hot

.

Poem:           6 x 3 + 2    aab ccb ddb eeb ffb ggb  hh

metaphors style his writing
his stories always very exciting
stubborn, he sticks to his ways

his art filled with symbolism
he never reacts to criticism
his thoughts radiate like golden rays

his thinking ignores the obvious
he walks the fine edge of notorious
when finished, that is where it stays

pleasures inferred by use of innuendos
readers view through clouded windows
past or future, he never counted in days

eventually was forever his ultimate goal
leading the gullible down the rabbit hole
his best genre was theatrical plays

he was quite prolific for many decades
he used every trick except for charades
his attitude was to do whatever pays

kudos to the writers who can stick to their guns
those  who can tell a story without using puns
