Self-understanding

.

.

“For what is a poem

but a hazardous attempt

at self-understanding:

it is the deepest part

of autobiography.”

.

– Robert Penn Warren

Elfje: (Cinquain)

Happiness
Supreme delight
Attaining considerable good
Manna for the soul
Felicity

.

Haiku:

.

felt but rarely seen

hot or cold the air shimmers

visible seasons

.

Poem:

.

A beautiful thing

a work of art

it makes the soul sing

the flowers in the cart

the bird on the wing

Mother Nature knows her part

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me

 

the subtle curves of the human body

the rainbow displaying all of the colors

the culture that enjoys decors gaudy

or is it natures well camouflaged wonders

 

beauty grows when viewed from the heart

to touch, to smell, to imagine, satisfaction

is there a real message in abstract art

or just wishing to evoke a shocked reaction

 

calm, serene enjoying the aesthetic

a positive attitude of happiness

to looking beyond the artificial cosmetic

wonderful memories that are priceless

the real, the surreal, never synthetic

accepting all splendor as God’s kindness

 

today my eyes must yearn to see

and learn what beauty means to me
