True Poems Flee

.

“To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry,
though never in a Book
it lie —
True Poems flee —”

.

~ Emily Dickinson

flee

open heart

mind set free

kindness, happiness, love, me

freedom

.

Haiku:

.

natures bright beauty

obvious, no camouflage

for all to enjoy

.

Poem:

.

every man his own song
a tune always remembered
forgotten words, just hum along
a happy soul unencumbered

first learned on mothers lap
upon playgrounds in grade school
mouth hidden by a baseball cap
whatever it took to be real cool

reminders of the first love
sock hop dances at the “y”
cooing like a mourning dove
songs like American pie

1812 Overture, Bolero
doo wop to jazz
a little song sparrow
and all that razzmatazz

we all love shower room acoustics
even the saddest music can make one happy
pencils make wonderful drum sticks
mesmerized by the tune that is catchy

sing your favorite song
find a friend, enjoy polyphony
let your heart beat strong
delight in life’s fine harmony

be someone’s sunshine
and
know that
the music will never die

If You Don’t Read

.

“Maybe you’re
one of those people
who writes poems,
but rarely reads them.
Let me put this as
delicately as I can:
If you don’t read,
your writing is going
to suck.”

.

~ Kim Addonizio

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

together

we stand

voices in harmony

our cause in agreement

united

.

Haiku:

.

fog greets the morning

condensation shrouds windows

world a white blur

.

Poem:

.

who or what is the best teacher
mother, father, guru, preacher
does the experience have to be yours
does everything hide behind locked doors

what sparks a child’s interest in learning
is intelligence connected to yearning
will television replace common sense
can artificial intelligence teach self defense

government wants to dumb everyone down
programmed parents just wanna be clowns
the rich get richer, the poor just succumb
elderly try to survive on a fixed income

greed, avarice and jealousy the political ideals
constitution rewritten by a court of appeals
what ever happened to cursive and civics
can the world be cured by metaphysics

pray, as we see the world population increase
try to do your part to  teach world peace
smile
