Philosophical

.

poetry is

“the most philosophical

of all writing”

whose object is

“truth…carried alive

into the heart by passion”.

.

~ William Wordsworth    (1770-1850)

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

urge

restless desire

an instinctive motive

natural disposition towards scratching

itch

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

follow the hearts lead

believe love

the best emotion

.

Poem:

.

for every philosophy that is true
there is a philosophy that is blue

if it doesn’t fit, create a new word
greek or latin base preferred

when is a debate not an argument
is being stupid a thought impairment

each philosophy ends in the same black hole
we are all unique as is every lump of coal

treat every day as a commencement
all souls have received the same life sentence

find a philosophy that you may call your own
one that the world would be glad to clone

seeking the will of a Higher Power
may lead you to the top of the ivory tower

be kind, be forgiving, practice unconditional love
this philosophy will bring blessings from above

be the best happy dance choreographer
and always be the good hearted philosopher

The Most Vivid

.

“Poetry is only the

highest eloquence of passion,

the most vivid form of expression

that can be given to our

conception of anything,

whether pleasurable or painful,

mean or dignified,

delightful or distressing.”

.

~ William Hazlitt

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sleep

sweet child

visions of sugarplums

dancing in your head

lullaby

.

Haiku:

.

hope springs eternal

winter succumbs to the sun

spring burst through the snow

.

Poem:

.

the optimist sees happy
pulling peppermint taffy
strolling the boardwalk by the sea
laughs and giggles snorted with glee
banter returned with a sally
sights and sounds enjoyed for free

one should not take themselves too seriously
however, demeanor should be held virtuously
always choose the perfect time to be silly
your opinion is the only one that counts, really
retribution is no reason to be an offender
usually better to be and equal rights defender

flights of fancy with no rhyme or reason
kindness and love need no season
stream of conscious not written in prose
picture the aroma of a perfect red rose
sometimes it is good to let the poem think
fear can push anyone over the brink

marshmallow clouds served for lunch
having fun is always a good hunch
forever chasing the proverbial rainbows
enjoying life from from toes to nose
getting sloppy wet kisses from a puppy
the optimist always sees the happy
