Fossil Poetry

Language

is

fossil Poetry.”


~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Elfje: (Cinquain) Classic, each word only a single syllable.

.

words

you said

nouns and verbs

a tone of voice

speech

.

Haiku:

pitter patter rain

seedling needs food, sunshine

Gods hydroponics

Poem:

.

he was dreaming of building a rocket
while wearing a hat like Davy Crockett
no dreams, much to young to smoke a pipe
most of the world saw him as a stereotype

mumbled and stumbled through life as a teenager
went to college but could never declare a major
got drunk and was kicked out of the fraternity
managed to impregnate the ugliest girl in the sorority

never confused with being an eager beaver
managed to survive as an underachiever
alcohol and drugs he turned into an abuse
the mean ugly world gave him an excuse

since we love happy endings, we’ll give him recovery
finding the truth was a road of discovery
he now lives a life that is happy, joyous and free
believing in a Higher Power was beginning key

to the still sick and suffering he shares his story
to the God of his understanding he gives all glory
more sobriety, more keys, more doors to open
enjoying the best world he could have ever chosen

Upon The Poetry

.

“Honest criticism

and sensible appreciation

are directed

not upon the poet

but upon the poetry.”

.

~ T.S. Eliot,

.

.

Elfje:             (Cinquain)

.

smile

improves apearance

uses fewer muscles

can be very contagious

happiness

.

Haiku

.

awesome is the ant

a biblical proverb who

moves heaven and earth

.

Poem:

.

sunbeams warm the sand
bodies wishing to be tanned
visits to the beach

umbrellas and chairs aligned in a row
the world speed turned down to slow
cheeks colored like a fuzzy peach

children of all ages building castles
egotist flexing over developed muscles
we must be careful what we teach

domain of the ogling voyeurs
the perfect body connoisseurs
the prejudice that we preach

families playing together
lotioned skin resembles leather
squeals of laughter replacing speech

mind’s images creating memory
today becomes tomorrow’s history
same moment, a different picture for each

a gentle reminder, sand everywhere
and warm reflections of a day without care.
