The Crazy Thing

.

“The crazy thing

about poetry

is how

its simplicity

makes it complicated.”

.

― Richelle E. Goodrich

.

Elfje:

.

faith

more that

you give away

more you will receive

paradox

.

Haiku:

.

brown fields gently sleep

spring rains awakens their souls

colors shout new life

.

Poem:

.

winner, winner
chicken dinner
sometimes a win is a loss
a rolling stone gathers no moss

who’s keeping score anyways
are you always seeking praise
if you mind, does it matter
if it matters, should you mind

Geisel thrived on nonsense
who lives in your subconscious
can you say you’re in your right mind
or do you listen to the mind chatter

remember, God knows what you are thinking
is the thinking stinking from too much drinking
blessed to know the things I can change
it is the attitude that  we can rearrange

the moral, the lesson, don’t think too much
life is best lived with a soft touch

Just One Person

.

“The purpose of poetry

is to remind us /

how difficult it is

to remain

just one person…”

.

― Czesław Miłosz

.

Elfje:     (Cinquain)

.

dexterous

many hats

will try anything

with multi faceted personality

confused

.

Haiku:

.

morning chill brings fog

fall colors portend winter

mother natures sleep

.

Poem:

.

The mind is the key
To a Higher Power I plea

I am but a steward of theUni-verse
Deigned not to do the perverse

Mother nature to protect
Nor my body to neglect

Acknowledging that the soul dwells
beautifully adorned in light pastels

In the heart of all who pray
For however long or short their stay

The mind is the enigma
Choices are what grow the stigma

The mind must humbly respect
So that the body and soul will reflect

A life that could not be any greater
A life that is worthy of the Creator
