Elevate The Soul

.

“To elevate

the soul,


poetry


is necessary.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Elfje: (Cinquain)

soul

you are

from the mind

what’s in your heart

life

poetry

is necessary

to live

.

Poem:

.

it is nine AM and the spam callers have started
intruding into my life that has been uncharted
empathy, everyone has to make a living
sympathy, it is my part to be forgiving

enjoying chaos, loving the tempest in the tea cup
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
the backward brain cannot make up its mind
to God we are all just one of a kind

time will move on, with or without me
a drifting raft in the middle of a large sea
envious of those who own a motor
debating my impact as a one in a million voter

is there a subliminal meaning to any of this drivel
something to do with my head being mounted on a swivel
rumbling, mumbling, stumbling, through one day at a time
can perverse thinking be a punishable crime

pardon me but I am just having some fun
trying not to get caught while being on the run

Trifles

.

“Trifles make

perfection,

and perfection

is no trifle.”

.

~ Michelangelo

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

.

plain

most clean

no foul dirt

as God made it

pure

St Valentines Day
his unconditional love
a channel for God

you too can be His channel
just love without a limit

.

Poem:

.

failed, misplaced, skipped, omitted, lost
you can’t retrieve the past at any cost
don’t blame the memory for getting old
it is mostly the lies that we have been told

hindsight tells me that I missed my prime
either misused or squandered most of my time
no use crying over all of the spilled milk
a sows ear can’t be made into a purse of silk

forget the past, let the hair down, have some fun
soak up the sun, even if the work is not done
time is an element that man will not conquer
it’s our perception what makes time a monster

today, let time manage it’s own image
are you alive ?,
just thank God for that privilege
