Yearning In Desire

.

“And this gray spirit

yearning in desire

To follow knowledge

like a sinking star,

Beyond the utmost bound

of human thought.

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

opine

your interpretation

what should be

not what could be

editorialize

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

emotional tic

tears for every occasion

a heartfelt response

feelings that reflect instincts

sensations keeping life real

.

Poem:

.

amazed to see dancing elephants
not your usual vision of elegance

minds that create wonderful fantasy
learning your own meaning of insanity
excessive pride leads to vanity

is there really such a thing as normal
the happiest are those who live informal
the young do not have an exclusive on vernal

forget resentments, let go and let God
there isn’t a soul that is not flawed
to those who are due, stand and applaud

the winners always think positive
leaders communicate in the demonstrative
you can never be too old to be cognitive

for only the best, profound respect is reverent
gloriously unique, everyone is different
know that this world is absolutely magnificent

awe struck by the breaching of whales
a joy to be entertained by fantastic tales

Footprints

.

“Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sand of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o’er life’s solenm main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

plod

walk wearily

keep on going

through thick and thin

trudge

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

rain, rain go away

come again

as you surely will

.

Poem:

.

spirituality is a God that glows
religion is crowd control
love is a heart that shows
hate is to blacken one’s soul

kindness is thinking of others
meanness is born of selfishness
happiness is celebrating mothers
anger is the birthplace of nemesis

good or evil is a choice
life is best lived in balance
do the next right thing and rejoice
when in doubt, always chose silence
