A Justification

.

“Poetry had always seemed

something I could turn to

in need – an emergency exit,

a lifebuoy, as well as

a justification.”

.

~ John Fowles

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

justification

wrong explanation

building plausible excuses

legitimizing the illegitimate reason

alibi

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

flowers aroma

heady scent

draws pollinators

Poem:

.

stop it . . .turn off that damned TV
it was entertainment, now it’s propaganda
even football was reduced to a bended knee
aren’t you privy to the left wing memoranda

the Lone Ranger will never ride again
gone are Howdy Doody and Clarabell
no moral message, nothing but a brain drain
now, everything ends with a violent bombshell

we were warned by Orwell in 1984
social media has become our Big Brother
not an honest soul remains to keep score
time to pray for a fairy godmother

be a friend, have a friend, do something nice
good deeds travel fast with no purchase price

Ah, I Remember

.

“Ah, distinctly I remember

it was in the bleak December

And each separate dying ember

wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly I wished the morrow;

— vainly I had sought to borrow

From my books surcease of sorrow

— sorrow for the lost Lenore.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

pleasure

feels good

free from guilt

can make everyone happy

delight

.

Haiku:

.

winter snows cover

Mother Nature takes her nap

cold silence prevails

.

Poem:

.

with a God given aptitude
and a very positive attitude
one cannot but have gratitude
for living a life of love
tolerance we can duplicate
patience which we can educate
forgiveness a spirit to elevate
guidance from above

beginning the day with reflections
strength to share kind affections
courage to follow His directions
being able  to love
doing nothing that is immoral
learning to live with thinking abnormal
accepting that no one is immortal
inspiration from above

no fear of being secluded
resentments finally concluded
in society a joy to be included
glad to share the love
given a pathway to recovery
relief from all of the drudgery
every breath a God given luxury
blessings from above
