Those Who Don’t Believe

.

.

“And above all,

watch with glittering eyes

the whole world around you

because the greatest secrets

are always hidden in

the most unlikely places.

Those who don’t believe in magic

will never find it.”

.

.

~  Roald Dahl

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

magic

hocus pocus

now you don’t

now you see it

prestidigitation

.

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

.

happy, joyous, free

the addict recovering

ever vigilant

.

Poem:

.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:”
Thus St. Francis of Assisi begins his prayer
one soul at a time asking love to increase
replacing negatives one need not bear

from seven negatives, each a positive given
a personal dedication to prayer votives
become willing to accept God’s admonition
sympathise, love, abandon selfish motives

“divine Master” give me the strength
to do what is right at any price
the courage to go to any length
to make this world a place that is nice

know the wonderful paradoxes,
that you must give to receive
satisfaction that the soul transfixes
love more for happiness to achieve

have faith, there is nothing to despair
enjoy a beautiful life given for us to share

A Crack

.

“There is

a crack

in everything.

That’s how

the light

gets in.”

~   Leonard Cohen

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

light

denotes love

God’s great creation

ideas that really matter

bright

.

Haiku:

.

howling wind blows east

snow creates whiteout blizzard

life is put on hold

.

.

Poem:

.

there once was a lady from Minneapolis
her credo in life was happiness
she began each morning with a prayer to God
this wondrous universe she would applaud

a great big smile she always wore
for her being kind was never a chore
her every action showed unconditional love
sharing the graces she received from above

her daily focus was to do God’s will
never to make a mountain out of a molehill
for the sick and suffering she was patient
never took things for granted, was never complacent

for the stupid and ignorant she was tolerant
she was very very proud to be independent
for the misguided she was forgiving
content she was with her standard of living

each day ended with a prayer of gratitude
for being seen and not being viewed
