Of Interest

.

.

“You cannot write for children…

They’re much too complicated.

You can only write books

that are of interest to them.”

.

~ Maurice Sendak

Elfje:           (Cinquain)

.

fascinating

imagination piqued

a compelling subject

boys and girls differences

interesting

.

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

.

happiness enjoyed
discovered after the fact
blinded by the light

.

Poem:                              (puns allowed)

.

he was a mighty man the legends say
feet spread wide he could span the bay
lumberjacks said he was the best they ever saw
friend of the mountain lion and the bear
his custom was to appear out of nowhere

they say he stood as high as the redwoods
natives believed he was a child of the gods
for miners he was a man they could really dig
his knack was helping people in distress
he was the guardian angel of the pony express

he helped tame America’s wild wild west
avoiding praise he was forever modest
for the pioneer he was the ultimate trailblazer
he was a very close cousin of Paul Bunyan
descended from a chief of the Chipewyan

he answered to the name of Mighty Mike
there was not a creature he did not like
for the homesteader he was a guiding light
his spirit, they say, still lives in the mountains
gurgling streams and big skies his favorite domains

pay homage to Mike whenever you can
seek peace between nature and the human

Without

.

“Any healthy man

can go without food

for two days-

-but not without poetry.”

.

~ Baudelaire

.

.

Elfje:        (Cinquain)

.

hope

wish for

generate good karma

for only what’s needed

faith

.

Haiku:

.

fall waits quietly

warm earth helps summer linger

daylight becomes less

.

Poem:

.

wafting aromas Saturdays baking
taste of heaven in the making
natures best mixed with love
taught by angels from above

apple, peach, cherry pie
the best molasses makes shoofly
scones, eclairs, turnovers and  strudels
oh me, oh my, I could eat oodles

remembering things that were home made
just down the street by the crazy old maid
sitting, cooling on the open window sill
shes watching us with looks that could kill

one for each, she would finally say
happiness to savor for the rest of the day
