Favorite Poet

“Must be going crazy—

my favorite poet lately

has been me!

favorite

most liked

best there is

could never  do without

mine

.

Haiku:

.

Lightening and thunder

God’s ultimate fireworks show

highlights each season

.

Poem:

.

bugs rule the world

waiting for the bug man

the eco system to be imperiled

we know it is just another scam

.

the roach can survive a nuclear attack

live three days without it’s head

can see where its going in the pitch black

they will be here long after man is dead

.

the best bugs give us silk and honey

mosquitoes and fire ants the biggest pest

centipedes give us a run for our money

their goal is the whole wide world to infest

.

certain aboriginals do the larva eat

some pay good money for chocolate covered ants

I’m not quite certain I’d call them a treat

I will not go out of my way to give them a chance

.

no itching or scratching

it only makes things worse

just think of the millions now hatching

believe, Nature’s plan is not a curse

.

protect all life (maybe) as holy

but it is still fine to feed the fish

to eliminate the moths who make us holey

believe me, my favorite sound is still …. squish

The Rhythmical Creation Of Beauty

.

“I would define,

in brief,

the poetry of words

as the rhythmical

creation of Beauty.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

.

.

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

soothing

gentle sounds

pleasing gossamer dreams

still water runs deep

brooks

 

.

Haiku:

.

thunder lightening rain

God’s wonderful theater

life giving waters

.

Poem:

.

I can see the setting with my minds eye

with my words I want you to see it too

use your imagination, let it fly

let us all take a trip to the emotional zoo

.

let us start with the family, we know them best

Dad doesn’t count, his emotions are hidden

question his feelings he would flunk this test

real men don’t cry; a tear, heaven forbidden

.

Mom’s usually have all of the passion

child bearing, child rearing stretches the sensibilities

following Dr. Spock or whoever is the current fashion

in the end, Mothers intuition is the God given ability

.

Siblings, a curse or a blessing

some are like Mom, some are like Dad

memories fueled by feelings worth expressing

the best times, the worst times we have ever had

.

neighbors and friends can fill the zoo

from cuddly koalas to to the always hungry lion

over the cuckoo’s nest some of them flew

personally they all made their own bed to lie in

.

paint the picture, yourself, family and others

what colors do their personalities represent

the vibrant peacock, the camouflaged laughing hyenas

use your mental imagery how many matches can you invent

.

see the picture

who is the sicker

can’t go to the zoo

without looking for you
