No, Thank You

.

“If the only

prayer you said

was ‘thank you,’

that would be

enough.”

.

~ Meister Eckhart

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

prayer

a thought

asking for guidance

listening for the answer

meditation

.

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

.

sadness turned to joy

negative to positive

anger turned to love

.

Poem:

.

he thought what he felt was a feeling
but the alcohol always kept him reeling
looking forward he saw only the ceiling
his reality was never truly appealing

near death made him change his ways
time allowed him to see through the haze
his body recovered from the sick malaise
to a Higher Power he gives the praise

it became a slew of feelings that he felt
his roller coaster emotions needed a seat belt
his cold stone heart had begun to melt
a new hand of cards he had been dealt

a new friend and then more friends
a fellowship that taught him to make amends
how the wreckage of the past to cleanse
and the twelve steps that paid big dividends

today his feelings are a joy to explore
emotions that are allowed to soar
a life that has been his to restore
peace, serenity and so much more

My Pleasure

“If it ain’t

a pleasure,

it ain’t

a poem.

.

― William Carlos Williams

Elfje:

.

read

and write

compose the idea

make the words sing

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

spring blooms prolific

nature provides the pleasure

melted snow feeds brook

Poem:

.

twinkle, twinkle little star
nursery rhymes written from afar
how I wonder what you are
whose hand was caught in the cookie jar

star light star bright
does heaven only come out at night
can all of my wishes come true tonight
simple pleasures our souls delight

hickory dickory dock
everyone ran from the mouse in the clock
so glad the rodents don’t come in a flock
we’d cut off their tails with a tomahawk

Old King Cole was a merry old soul
got lost while out taking an evening stroll
wonder if he knew about the black hole
time out, snack time, chinese spring roll

And now poor Simple Simon bids you all “Adieu”
he’d come to get you but there is a hole in his canoe
we’ll end this little ditty with a happy thank you
and looking forward to seeing you’ll at (in) the zoo

my pleasure
