Not Knowing

.

“Though I play at

the edges of knowing,

truly I know our part

is not knowing,

but looking, and touching,

and loving”

.

― Mary Oliver

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

misplaced

can’t find

lost in space

how important is it

squandered

.

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

.

for crying out loud

how upset can you make me

will you please stop it

.

Poem:

.

Dreams are who you want to be
Who you are is in your heart
the happiest soul possesses a hidden beauty
your willingness to be you will set you apart

take pride in whatever you do
even doing nothing takes a bit of talent
don’t be a person that one can see through
just choose to be a spirit that is gallant

it is no sin to reinvent yourself
especially when you go from bad to good
a person not afraid to come down off of the shelf
avoid the excuses to have, could, would and should

let today be your day to really shine
no need to wait for the stars to align

Our Emptiness

.

“Trees are poems

the earth writes

upon the sky,

We fell them down

and turn them into paper,

That we may record

our emptiness.”

.

~ Kahlil Gibran

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

barren

devoid of

big empty space

nothing to sneeze at

void

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

over extended

exhausted

giving it ones all

.

Poem:

.

get your head out of the sand
do you think that you’re a one man band
believe that you will never crash land
do you always want more than the Bird-in-Hand*

you’re a wanna be guru, the blind leading the blind
did you ever consider having a balanced mind
to a life below average you have resigned
know that even the sane are one of a kind

for you hope and faith are still achievable
miracles that bring about change are believable
there hasn’t been a soul that was irretrievable
in God’s world there is nothing inconceivable

time to put the ego in its place
name the bad habits you need to erase
give friends and family their needed space
ask a Higher Power for His grace

be willing to say I do not know
don’t believe your own braggadocio
learn to go with the flow
look up, see the rainbow

be kind to yourself, offer lenity
provide for yourself every amenity
hope and faith, a life of peace and serenity
gratitude for having a new identity
