Understood / Understand

“First, I do not

sit down at my desk

to put into verse

something that is

already clear in my mind.

. . .

We do not write

in order to be understood;

we write in order

to understand.”     .       ~ Cecil Day Lewis

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

who

what, when

where, why, maybe

answers rarely agreed upon

you

.

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

.

remorse, guilt and shame

negative thoughts on steroids

fuel for depression

.

Poem:           ( villanelle )

.

feelings that are too large to measure
those events that make the heart proud
memories that we will always treasure

ceremonies summoned to mind with pleasure
impressions remembered when on the pink cloud
feelings that are too large to measure

events easily recalled at one’s leisure
always happy to be shared with a crowd
memories that we will always treasure

gratitude and blessings regardless of the weather
more joy than anyone should be allowed
feelings that are too large to measure

the successful life changing great adventure
from the rooftops we shouted aloud
memories that we will always treasure

times that bring friends and family together
emotions with which we all are endowed
feelings that are too large to measure
memories that we will always treasure

No / Yes

.

“After the final no

there comes a yes /

And on that yes

the future world depends.”

.

― Wallace Stevens

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

action

doing something

with a purpose

going forward, not backwards

reaction

.

Haiku:

.

spring rains have arrived

brown earth turns to vibrant green

flowers add color

.

Poem:                  (Roundelay)

.

in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

ME and the Boss.
