The Untier Of Knots

.

“The poet is

an untier of

knots,

and love

without words

is a knot,

and it drowns.”

~  Gabriela Mistral

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)   classic, each word only one syllable

.

kind

be good

treat me fair

do next right thing

love

.

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

.

bawling, sobs and tears

she, who was the drama queen

never to console

.

Poem:

.

searching for my inner strength
for my love I would go to any length
speaking the truth with only candor
never a hint of being a philander

learning that the perfect word is we
in all affairs, to be as honest as can be
to face the good times and the bad
having a trust that is truly ironclad

the deepest feelings, more than a friend
someone on whom you can always depend
the best partner ever for playing charades
a person with whom you can count decades

the heart that will go with me to any length
the soul who leads me to my inner strength

Angels In Disguise

.

“Be not

inhospitable

to strangers,

lest they be

angels in disguise.”

.

~ W B Yeats

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable

.

death

last breath

to the end

those left to grieve

dead

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.

he loved her so much
spirits entwined to the end
he was left to grieve

a generation now gone
time does not wait for a soul

.

Poem:

.

Death, the poets greatest fear
the thought of losing someone so dear
always searching for the meaning of life
the heart wounded by an emotional knife

why that person, why not me
the only human with whom I could agree
their unwavering love knew no limits
souls that were touched by holy spirits

never alone, their echoes live in our hearts
lonely because the laughter never starts
unknown triggers renew the grief
inner turmoil caused by an emotional thief

let the tears flow, they cleanse the soul
because we know for whom the bells toll

.

ME and my dearest Boss
