Self-understanding

.

.

“For what is a poem

but a hazardous attempt

at self-understanding:

it is the deepest part

of autobiography.”

.

– Robert Penn Warren

Happiness
Supreme delight
Attaining considerable good
Manna for the soul
Felicity

.

Haiku:

.

felt but rarely seen

hot or cold the air shimmers

visible seasons

.

Poem:

.

A beautiful thing

a work of art

it makes the soul sing

the flowers in the cart

the bird on the wing

Mother Nature knows her part

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me

 

the subtle curves of the human body

the rainbow displaying all of the colors

the culture that enjoys decors gaudy

or is it natures well camouflaged wonders

 

beauty grows when viewed from the heart

to touch, to smell, to imagine, satisfaction

is there a real message in abstract art

or just wishing to evoke a shocked reaction

 

calm, serene enjoying the aesthetic

a positive attitude of happiness

to looking beyond the artificial cosmetic

wonderful memories that are priceless

the real, the surreal, never synthetic

accepting all splendor as God’s kindness

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me

Just the Ash

.

Poetry is just

the evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is

just the ash.”

.

~ Leonard Cohen

wet

the grass

does not burn

pray for more rain

drought

HAIKU:

.

nature accepts change

seasons become important

call them what you may

.

Poem

.

the crow  of premonition

perched on the scarecrows head

sparking the farmers intuition

foreboding a feeling of dread

.

is it a truth or an old wives tale

does the Great Creator have a sense of humor

what is it with the salt on his tail

can the bird really tell the future

.

a creature of opportunity

he loves to go for the bling

and lives with a reputation of ambiguity

with a signature caw he does not sing

.

Jim Crow reigned in the South

God, please make us all color blind

for those who didn’t read it was word of mouth

apparently bird brained is the state of mankind

.

the humble rarely have to eat crow

the braggart is the crowing chicken

he knows best who can go very slow

why worry . . .  the future is hidden
