Curious Prosodic Fauna

.

“Every poet has

his dream reader:

mine keeps a look out

for curious prosodic fauna

like bacchics and

choriambs.”

.

~ W.H. Auden

drunk

happy vino

dripping with honey

seeking the deviant pleasure

Bacchanalia

.

Haiku:

.

the vine slowly twines

natures cornucopia

fruits red, white and blue

.

Poem:

.

soothing gurgle of the fountains water
butterflies bobbing by
every soul nods an imprimatur
the background a clear blue sky

the gardner paints a living pallet
flowers arranged by size and color
protected from vermine by a small vallate
no defense against the creepy crawler

sunset visits from hummingbirds
migrating robins stop for a bite
a contented smile needs no words
all heads turn to follow the light

lucky the soul who enjoys God’s gift
natures flora and fauna displayed
happy are those with a gratitude list
knowing that nothing at all is man-made

in the very heart of poetry

.

“How they had dreamed

together,

he and she…

how they had planned,

and laughed, and loved.

They had lived for a while

in the very heart of poetry.”

~ Elizabeth von Arnim

beat

pulsating rhythm

without a murmur

physical, emotional, mental, spiritual

heart

.

Haiku:

.

Jack Frost almost bit

the sun warmed earth held its ground

spring flowers blooming

.

Poem:

.

the journey with no destination
growing and learning along the way
the soul exists in every location
the mind creates home and away

where am I really
when I think I am lost
comfortable and contented ideally
normal is akin to being star crossed

today is a luxury I must not lose
the moments to savor and relish
doing God’s will I cannot refuse
avoiding the self centered and selfish

today I will live in the present
lessons from the past not forgotten
avoiding the issues of discontent
joys and pleasures to enlighten

gratitude for a mind that is free
and to have lived in the heart of poetry
