Whatever It Is

.

“I am solitary

as grass.

What is it I miss?

Shall I ever find it,

whatever it is?”

.
~ Sylvia Plath

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

stupid

can’t learn

memorized by rote

having not yet learned

ignorant

.

Haiku:

.

bright lightning flashes

loud thunder claps following

furious wind gust

.

Poem:

.

It goes, whatever It is.
It will go on without me.
It is life, the quiz.
It is never free.

It is the good question.
It is the dubious answer.
It is the impression.
It is the brain power.

if I caught It
what would I do with It
life is such a nebulous It
living is to enjoy It

It comes.
It goes.
is It a plan from a Higher Source
It is whatever you want It to be

tag – – – your It

Uniting

.

“Poetry is

the art of

uniting pleasure

with truth.”

.

― Samuel Johnson

.

.

Elfje:

.

noise

vulgar speech

display of ignorance

oaths among the stupid

swearing

.

Haiku:

.

God lives forever

time measured by the light year

man’s life but a blink

.

 

Poem:

.

can I tell a lie

grandiose ego I

makes me want to cry

the morals which I defy

 

Mother taught me right

the church made  me fear sin

the commandments I thought were trite

it was always more important to win

 

t’was instant gratification that I sought

never dreamt of the consequence

tried every sin that could be bought

the highs were far above common sense

 

struck sober by a God incident

was almost restored to sane thinking

the addiction was false imprisonment

controlled by habits that were stinking

 

to thine own self be true

a better way of living

a Higher Power to see me through

enjoying a life I thought was missing

 

I cannot tell a lie

I no longer want to be that bad guy
