Fossil Poetry

Language

is

fossil Poetry.”


~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Elfje: (Cinquain) Classic, each word only a single syllable.

.

words

you said

nouns and verbs

a tone of voice

speech

.

Haiku:

pitter patter rain

seedling needs food, sunshine

Gods hydroponics

Poem:

.

he was dreaming of building a rocket
while wearing a hat like Davy Crockett
no dreams, much to young to smoke a pipe
most of the world saw him as a stereotype

mumbled and stumbled through life as a teenager
went to college but could never declare a major
got drunk and was kicked out of the fraternity
managed to impregnate the ugliest girl in the sorority

never confused with being an eager beaver
managed to survive as an underachiever
alcohol and drugs he turned into an abuse
the mean ugly world gave him an excuse

since we love happy endings, we’ll give him recovery
finding the truth was a road of discovery
he now lives a life that is happy, joyous and free
believing in a Higher Power was beginning key

to the still sick and suffering he shares his story
to the God of his understanding he gives a glory
more sobriety, more keys, more doors to open
enjoying the best world he could have ever chosen

Succeed

.

“Success is

counted sweetest

by those

ne’er succeed.”

.

― Emily Dickinson

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

small

not microscopic

somewhere in between

smaller than a breadbox

little

.

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

.

fear creates bigot

one who can never be wrong

your opinion sucks

.

Poem:

.

switch gears
change your mind
let go of fears
let yesterday behind
no more tears
to ugly be blind

focus on love
let the sunshine in
do forgiveness a lot of
kindness is a win win
seek guidance from above
never ever sin

to the ignorant show patience
the best medicine is a good laugh
to the stupid extend tolerance
happiest are those who only take half
perfection is to seek the balance
warrant what will be an honest epitaph

relax
meditate
enjoy life to the max
let karma dictate your fate
let every ending be a happy climax
life should, could and can be great
