Necessary To Comprehension

.

“Poetry is as

necessary to comprehension

as science.

It is as impossible

to live without reverence

as it is

without joy.”

.

~ Henry Beston

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

awe

to admire

wonder and amazement

overwhelmed with deep admiration

reverence

.

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

.

souls that can reach out

reflect a Higher Power

humble yet sincere

.

Poem:

.

a laugh a day keeps the shrink away
negative depression is a killer
for some being silly really does pay
a sick mind writes the psycho thriller

gratitude keeps the mind in the positive
many are born with the backward brain
pity for those with a mind that is addictive
brainwashing is the best way to retrain

recovery depends upon honest ownership
the selfish and self centered cannot love
alcohol will drown a healthy relationship
chemical dependency is a habit to get rid of

a life guided by a Higher Power
an easy pathway to your ivory tower

Cheese

.

.

“Poets

have been

mysteriously

silent on the

subject of cheese.”

.

― G.K. Chesterton

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

reborn

new start

changing bad habits

aspirations for better living

rejuvenated

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

news to influence

listening to the talking head

opinions disguised

assuming that no one thinks

what can one person do – vote

.

Poem:
.

mermaid kisses and starfish wishes
remembered dreams that are so delicious
light and airy, a contented happy heart
every moment a chance to have a fresh start

whatever happens it is God’s will
don’t give credence to a molehill
for the best life move on and accept
the universe knows that we have wept

relax, no worries, no frown
don’t let the little things get you down
go with nice people and go to good places
kindness is always rewarded with graces

an enlightened soul rolls with the tides
enjoying sand dollar millions and unicorn rides
