Young And Alive

.

“Know that there

is often hidden

in us a dormant

poet,

always young

and alive.

.

― Paul de Musset

.

Elfje:

.

joy

big smile

laugh out loud

glad to be alive

happiness

.

Haiku:

.

wind whispers through trees

background rhythm for the birds

birds who sing God’s praise

.

Poem:

.

Good words we want to hear
Celebrating the best of times
Knowing we have nothing to fear
Listening to the church bell chimes

Wonderful news that makes the heart sing
Hopes and dreams that all come true
After winters despair a beautiful spring
Watching the flowers come into view

Mother Nature donning her finest
Love and kindness fills every soul
All of the world at it’s brightest
To make the mind and spirit whole

Being the person God wants us to be
Friendship needs no words between you and me

Ink On White Space

.

“You can tell

it’s a poem

because it’s swimming

in a little gel pack

of white space.

That shows it’s a poem.”

.

~ Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist

.

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

reading

or writing

between the lines

ideas that grow horns

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

the thirsty plant sighs

welcomed spring showers arrive

nature replenished

.

Poem:

.

cacophony of the house

too many selfish bodies

hard of hearing spouse

each their own secret follies

.

everyone has their own device

each competing for attention

advertisers vying to entice

subliminal below comprehension

.

time for a vacation

need to seek the silence

the oceans roar salvation

regaining emotional balance

.

God teaching me patience

different strokes for different folks

are their steps to teach us tolerance

delusional reality or just a hoax

.

can meditation stop the noise

who is inconveniencing whom

because they know how it annoys

only made worse because we presume

.

shut the door

turn out the light

time to snore

say goodnight

.
