Favorite Team

.

“No matter the

disappointment,

you simply cannot

divorce your

favorite team.”

.

~ Kevin Walker

.

.

Elfje:

.

cheer

spectator sport

win or lose

represented by hometown heroes

fanatics

.

Haiku:

.

tufted titmouse flits

working hard building their nest

harbinger of spring

.

Poem:

.

sounds of happiness, spring provides the color

birds and bees reappear, a pallet for the artist watercolor

sounds and smells tickle the senses, allergies and more

natures tempo increases, far from the dreary winter we abhor

 

croaking frogs, water lily buds, the ponds icy bond released

trees sprout new nests, mom incubates, poppa provides a feast

the hibernators awaken, young to feed and teach

migrator following the sun, turtles eggs laid along the beach

 

gardens plowed anew, plantings ready, seeds to be sown

dreams of fresh veggies, satisfaction of producing your own

enjoying the longer days, feeling the cold leave the bones

flowers for the birds and bees, garden path paved with new stones

 

gratitude for Natures providence, will man ever find the key

the garden is happiness and contentment with which we all can agree

What’s It Like

.

“no poet can know

what his poem

is going to be like

until he has written it.”

.

~ W.H. Auden

.

Elfje:

.

what

who, when

where, why, how

questions with no answers

surprise

.

Haiku:

.

migrating birds seen

seasons are about to change

natures ebb and flow

.

Poem:

.

choices: up or down

is it a smile or a frown

a positive attitude of gratitude

or is it just a swing of the mood

 

do others push your buttons

feelings extracted with a summons

is the mind attached to the emotion

can the view be swayed by a magic potion

 

is the Pollyanna being realistic

must you always consult a mystic

can we overthink every decision

are your instincts in collision

 

it’s time: push has come to shove

can you suggest an alternative
