No Other Rule

.

“Write

what you like;

there is no

other rule.”

.

~ O. Henry

.

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

.

joy

some fun

a big thrill

glad to be nice

glee

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

beautiful sky

sun and mist

rainbows everywhere

.

Poem:

.

looking, lost, trying to find fantasyland
this ugly, smelly reality I cannot stand
transport me to a faraway zone
let me hide by using a clone

let’s create a new space and call it Love
built with the blessings received from above
air and noise pollution may not exist
the sky above always rainbow kissed

soft melodies provided by the birds and the bees
herbal aromas wafting about on a fresh breeze
every trail and path lined with a display floral
the horizon represented by a bucolic mural

a sirens scream, a grieving mothers wail
back to earth, dreams wasted to no avail
a bang and a thud, everything used and abused
only the crazy from this world are excused

to cope, one must adjust the altitude
work hard at keeping a good attitude
let reality suck, if it must
let go, relax, in God you must trust

A Small Truth

.

“A poet must discover

that it’s his own story

that is true,

even if the truth

is small indeed.”

.

― Jim Harrison

.

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

lies

lies, lies

told a fib

you lying dirty crook

prevaricator

.

Haiku:

.

the summer solstice

sun begins southern journey

the years longest day

.

Poem:

.

time racing, thoughts fleeting
happy heart is loudly beating
mind trained to think positive
my attitude, my prerogative

laugh, love, enjoy the moment
days spent needing no atonement
motives aimed at helping others
those that need it if I had my druthers

getting my cue from Mother Nature
I’m only another of her lovely creatures
seeking balance for my fragile soul
in God’s realm there is no loophole

just gratitude for being alive
a better world I could not contrive
