Bring Some Of It With You

.

“You will

find poetry

nowhere

unless you bring

some of it with you.”

.

― Joseph Joubert

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

rhyme

shared thoughts

reader to listener

audience to the writer

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

freezing rain breaks boughs

nature’s attempt to prune limbs

springs healthy new growth

.

Poem:

.

once there were a happy people
living and loving very peaceful
every house had a heaven pointing steeple
children played and laughed gleeful

could there ever again be such a place
acceptance did not depend on your face
everyone respected each others space
there was only one human race

can politicians dictate such a thing
do miracles arrive on an angel’s wing
faithful marriages signed with a ring
harmonies that all are able to sing

will geneticist eventually eliminate the ego
no more testing with a placebo
no man made boundaries, you are free to go
peace and love the only credo

let us all raise a grateful prayer
work together to clear the air
eliminate the threat of warfare
solve the need for welfare

know that time will go on without us
only evil thoughts should be treasonous
most hopes and dreams are superfluous
God,
just let me be another bozo on the bus

The Colors Change

.

“Life’s like

a painters palette,

just when you’ve got

everything worked out

the colours change”

.

~ Benny Bellamacina

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

black

darkest colour

absence of light

while over the rainbow

white

.

Haiku:

.

birds migrating south

can winter be far behind

seasonal cycle

Poem:

.

lived in the negative
could never see the positive
the brain is on backward
the emotions fractured

one was never enough
morally never grew up
selfish and self-centered
the mouth was uncensored

suicide was always an option
rage on the verge of eruption
an existence lived in purgatory
fodder for a horrible short story

shifted gears, took it out of reverse
told that life is not a permanent curse
followed the suggestions of a few
found a way of living that was new

the road still has the same pot holes
easy to miss with God at the controls
it’s easy to be serious only part time
dance, sing, laugh, love,
enjoy the rhyme . . .
