Will Soon Be

.

“My thoughts,

I think,

will soon be sound.

My mind,

I hope,

will soon be found.”

~ Tahereh Mafi

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

potential

can be

imagining the best

making the world better

possibilities

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

opportunities
incubate new ideas
possibilities

building a better mousetrap
sending a man to the moon

.

Poem:

.

the gentle flower succumbs to the violent storm
the egomaniac orchestrates a horrible holocaust
God and man their wills to perform
self satisfaction sought at any cost

in God’s universe evolution cures all ills
man’s world requires some recapitulation
while many succumb to the need for pills
imagine a world with only one nation

too many questions, never enough answers
will the truth be something different tomorrow
will the soul submit to cancers
is there some time that we may borrow

today let’s choose to be positive
every day is a good day to be happy
have faith that anything is possible
that the cure for everything will be chocolate candy

gratitude that you have the time to share some love
aware that your blessings come from above

Sweetly Played

.

“My love is like a red, red rose

That’s newly sprung in June:

My love is like the melody

That’s sweetly played in tune.

.

~ Robert Burns

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

tune

musical creation

voice or instrument

pleasing the savage soul

melody

.

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

.

celebrate your soul

where compassion arises

thoughts that make one whole

.

Poem:

.

headache from the rap music
a generation to be hard of hearing
definitely not thinking lucid
only to the most primal endearing

trying to exercise some tolerance
watching the noise flaunt their money
trying to ignore their arrogance
so too serious that it is almost funny

tattoos crying I have no self esteem
what’s with the pants down to the knees
negativity, hate and killing a major theme
a vocabulary that doesn’t include thank you or please

whatever happened to decent moral values
with less gratitude they expect more
it seems that the shock value is what really sells
words and actions almost impossible to ignore

respect is demanded, never earned
banging, clanging rap is even in the commercials
sitting at the red light all heads are turned
twenty four seven they live in the rehearsals

thank God electronics have saved the oldies
what is gold and platinum shall never tarnish
styles of music that won’t ever need apologies
listening to sweet melodies that most can cherish

tunes you can hum, words that convey love
maybe even a beat that you can dance to
poetic lyrics sung by angels from above
patience, the evil shall meet their waterloo
