Today’s Word

.

“For last year’s words

belong to

last year’s language

And next year’s words

await another voice.”

.

~ T.S. Eliot

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

trash

man’s refuse

unneeded and unwanted

a treasure for nobody

garbage

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

listen everyone

pending storm

very quiet night

.

Poem:     sonnet: the weather

.

thunder rolls past every afternoon
daily showers bring humidity
gulf winds bring in the monsoon
stifling weather breeds stupidity

lightning kills more than all other storms
It never rains on a golf course
best time to dig for fishing worms
rain cannot wash away remorse

weather the topic, safe to discuss
accept what it is without making a fuss
some like it  cool, some like it hot
easy, just move to your ideal spot

change is the only thing you can expect
without having to be politically correct

This Is The Way

.

“This is the way

the world ends

Not with a bang

but a whimper.

.

~   T.S. Eliot

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

chance

dumb luck

incident or coincidence

right place right time

encounter

.

Haiku:

.

cold frosty mornings

mountain blazes red and gold

leaves begin to fall

.

.

Poem:

.

ice on the windows, spidery crystals
a fingernail scratches her initials
the winter light colored the clouds gray
it was too cold to go out and play

she waited for father to come home from work
he worked down at the wharfs as a shipping clerk
his arrival would warm her heart
it was the time when her day would really start

as she sat at the window memories began to awaken
many years had passed since those images were taken
Dad had died and now Mom chose to join him
the house now vacant was somber and grim

life moves on, her children for her now sadden
all wait, knowing that the predestined will happen
