Humor and Laughter

.

“Humor is

a prelude

to faith,

and laughter

is the beginning

of prayer.”

.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

.

pray

my plea

if you please

may all be fair

grace

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

God given seasons

a prayer of gratitude

just go with the flow

.

Poem:

.

time, time, please slow down Mr. Time . . . .
you are faster than I can rhyme
your speed also made me miss my prime
you look like a mountain that I can never climb

please Mr. Time can you be so kind
promise that you will never leave me behind
I’m trying my best to survive just for today
does it help that you are named when I pray

I do thank you Mr. Time for all of the  memories
grateful to have celebrated so many anniversaries
it is my selfish heart that wants so many more
it is not as though I have been keeping score

I apologize Mr. Time for missing the point
today is the day that I must truly anoint
yesterdays and tomorrows can only cloud my view
today I will enjoy your Time looking for what’s new

There You Are

.

“No matter

where you go,

there you are,”
.
.

~ Yogi Berra

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

went

came back

took a trip

went to the fair

fun

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

running from police

for rioting and looting

anarchist was paid

being caught is no big deal

liberal judge looks other way

.

Poem:

.

one too many games without a helmet
the old mind is losing its merit
can’t remember names or dates
does this lead all men to their fates

going to see the doc next Tuesday
his choice of a supplement to stop the decay
is it worth my money to believe their hype
do I really fit into that old age stereotype

my tailor says I should forget to eat
leave the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat
thinking thin has produced no results
for motivation the wife is hurling insults

growing older has not been fun
but I guess it will happen to everyone
stop worrying, enjoy the day
one is never too old to play
