Set the Darkness Echoing

.

“I rhyme

To see myself,

to set the

darkness echoing.”

~ Seamus Heaney

Elfje: (Cinquain)

green

cows chewing

farmer forever mowing

eventually it becomes milk

grass

.

Haiku:

.

smell freshly mown grass

see the storm clouds gathering

hear the summer buzz

.

Poem:

.

the boys of summer play their game
aspirations of reaching the hall of fame
the girls they have a league of their own
amazing how fast the pitches are thrown

fanatics root for the home team side
win or lose they show their pride
peanuts and crackerjacks at exorbitant prices
tasteless pizza served by the slices

fresh air and sunshine a good excuse
the scorecard as a remembrance to use
win or lose it was good family face time
remember the heroes when in their prime

whose the best ? ? ?
harmless discussions to become embroiled
definitely better than “a good walk spoiled*”

Haiku Challenge #70

“Poetry can be dangerous,

especially beautiful poetry,

because it gives the illusion

of having had the experience

without actually

going through it.”

.

he craned his long neck

seeking the golden sunshine

welcoming the day

 

he craned his long neck

searching for his beloved

her golden tresses

 

they met with a kiss

seeking the golden sunshine

they longed for pure  love

 

with true hearts of gold

their love increased with the dawn

welcoming the day
