My Pleasure

.

.

“If it ain’t

a pleasure,

it ain’t

a poem.

.

.

― William Carlos Williams

.

.

Elfje:

.

read

and write

compose the idea

make the words sing

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

spring blooms prolific

nature provides the pleasure

melted snow feeds brook

.

Poem:

.

twinkle, twinkle little star
nursery rhymes written from afar
how I wonder what you are
whose hand was caught in the cookie jar

star light star bright
does heaven only come out at night
can all of my wishes come true tonight
simple pleasures our souls delight

hickory dickory dock
everyone ran from the mouse in the clock
so glad the rodents don’t come in a flock
we’d cut off their tails with a tomahawk

Old King Cole was a merry old soul
got lost while out taking an evening stroll
wonder if he knew about the black hole
time out, snack time, chinese spring roll

And now poor Simple Simon bids you all “Adieu”
he’d come to get you but there is a hole in his canoe
we’ll end this little ditty with a happy thank you
and looking forward to seeing you’ll at (in) the zoo

my pleasure

The Ancients

.

“It has been said

by the ancients

that poetry is a

picture without form,

and painting is a

poem with form”

.

– HuaI (Song Dynasty)

.

Elfje:

.

form

or function

words or shapes

art for arts sake

ancient

.

Elfje   (Cinquain)

.

gasp

can’t breathe

trying to survive

everything is black and white

nightmare

.

Haiku:

.

nature has her form

survival of the fittest

are we included

.

Poem:

.

flights of fantasy, daydreams
over and over the same unreal themes
the what if I were rich instead of beautiful
dancing, singing, the star of a musical

no morbid thoughts to inspire a poem
wishing the reveries were to be an omen
castles in the air sparked by jealously
life’s decisions handled carelessly

dreams, not goals, wasting life’s precious moment
my lethargy being my own worst opponent
move a muscle, change a thought
maybe today, maybe today,  I’ll hit the jackpot

ME and the Boss
