No, Thank You

.

“If the only

prayer you said

was ‘thank you,’

that would be

enough.”

.

~ Meister Eckhart

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

prayer

a thought

asking for guidance

listening for the answer

meditation

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

sadness turned to joy

negative to positive

anger turned to love

.

Poem:

.

he thought what he felt was a feeling
but the alcohol always kept him reeling
looking forward he saw only the ceiling
his reality was never truly appealing

near death made him change his ways
time allowed him to see through the haze
his body recovered from the sick malaise
to a Higher Power he gives the praise

it became a slew of feelings that he felt
his roller coaster emotions needed a seat belt
his cold stone heart had begun to melt
a new hand of cards he had been dealt

a new friend and then more friends
a fellowship that taught him to make amends
how the wreckage of the past to cleanse
and the twelve steps that paid big dividends

today his feelings are a joy to explore
emotions that are allowed to soar
a life that has been his to restore
peace, serenity and so much more

The Silence Between Them

.

Notes

don’t make music

until you learn

to insert silence

between them.”

.

~ Ben Folds

.

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

.

pause

one note

white keys, black keys

chords to make tune

rest

.

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

.

ice forms on the branch

winter arrival announced

last leaves fall to ground

.

Poem:

.

quiet the noisy mind
be amazed at what you will find
rare feelings called serenity and peace
appreciation of this world to increase

silence, God’s opportunity to talk
enjoyed while taking an evening walk
wind and waves provide the best music
natures company a nice therapeutic

it takes a friend to break the silence
one willing to give good guidance
two souls that enjoy a mutual trust
a beautiful union sprinkled with angel dust

walk softly but carry a big love
quietly enjoy the blessings from above
