What Do You Know

.

“It was a

scary thought.

A man could be

surrounded by

poetry reading

and not know it.”

.

~ Richard Russo

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

magical

optical illusion

sleight of hand

out of this world

fantasy

.

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

.

not guilty of love

platonic admiration

best friends forever

.

Poem:

.

she lived in a negative world
her hands into fist were always curled
her face wore a permanent frown
with makeup she looked just like a clown

jealous envy colored her eyes green
one upmanship made her a fairy queen
and nothing she ever did was very small
she was the consummate know it all

adding to her woes was being a hypochondriac
she was born under every sign of the zodiac
she knows everyone’s selfish ulterior motives
she believes the whole world is on sedatives

lost in space
psychiatrists example of a typical nut case
she is a child only a mother could love
it is the past that she can never let go of

patience, tolerance, she is in our prayers
sad that some lives are just nightmares

Whatever It Is

.

“I am solitary

as grass.

What is it I miss?

Shall I ever find it,

whatever it is?”

.
~ Sylvia Plath

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

stupid

can’t learn

memorized by rote

having not yet learned

ignorant

.

Haiku:

.

bright lightning flashes

loud thunder claps following

furious wind gust

.

Poem:

.

It goes, whatever It is.
It will go on without me.
It is life, the quiz.
It is never free.

It is the good question.
It is the dubious answer.
It is the impression.
It is the brain power.

if I caught It
what would I do with It
life is such a nebulous It
living is to enjoy It

It comes.
It goes.
is It a plan from a Higher Source
It is whatever you want It to be

tag – – – your It
