The Longest Distance

.

“In philosophy,

as in politics,

the longest distance

between two points

is a straight line.”

.

~ Will Durant

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)     
.
draw
go over
make a mark
not a straight line
trace
.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
acting silly helps
avoiding reality
tense emotions eased
.

Poem:
.

relax, listen to your inner guidance
God will talk to you in the silence
choose to listen which is the next right thing
God’s choir is provided when the angels sing

prayer and meditation really work
serenity and peace of mind a Godly perk
all efforts designed to bring a spiritual experience
from self will run riot to God’s will with obedience

the silence broken by the sounds of laughter
fitting in to a fellowship that we sought after
a place to learn what is the next right thing
experience, strength and hope which you may bring

work your program, walk the walk
from the heart whenever you may talk
be the person you Higher Power wants you to be
Honest, Open-minded, Willing and free

Well-timed Silence

.

“Well-timed

silence

hath more

eloquence

than speech.”

.

~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

.

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

.

calm

no noise

a soft hush

a place to sit

still

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

God speaks in silence

meditate

listen to His word

.

Poem:

.

another lost moment in time
my ego became misplaced in the rhyme
a pregnant pause is not a well timed silence
wise are those who use God for guidance

why worry, most things forgotten don’t matter
if necessary God will put it on your platter
remember to sort your wants from your needs
even mustard comes from the smallest seeds

time spent wisely is usually with others
problems solved by a band of brothers
most important is to show up when promised
usually remembered when one is honest

today, take the time to do something nice
always done when following your own advice
