Fill It Up

.

“It’s just endless
what you can learn from
a single work of art.
You can fill up the crevices
of your life,
the cracks of your life,
the places where
the mortar comes out
and falls away-
you can fill it up with
the love of art.’

.

~  Vincent Price

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.
scare
cause fear
shock the nerves
make the heart jump
spook                                    (What Vincent Price was know for.)
.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
spring colors blossom
refreshed after winters sleep
birds and bees arrive

.

Poem:

.

seeing red, totally vivid
ignorant actions that make one  livid
anger is another form of fear
ulterior motives made unclear

emotions that must be explained
to keep the soul from being drained
the lessons to teach patience and tolerance
situations that require our total sufferance

wisdom achieved by learning to listen
uncovering motives that were hidden
Spiritual progress became our ultimate goal
rediscovering the value of our soul

no longer red, what we see is clear
serenity and peace devoid of fear

very flesh

a great poem.”

~ Walt Whitman

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

rhyme

lyric verse

language in cadence

from haiku to prose

poem

.

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

.

feelings of anguish

lost love leads to a heartbreak

emotional scars

.

Poem:

.

clear the noisy mind
leave the negative far behind
learn to love the silence
seek emotional balance

enjoy life one day at a time
never average, always the sublime
simply high on life, avoiding the chaos
for others misfortune a real pathos

don’t just practice being kind
share with others your peace of mind
make sure your love is unconditional
never a fake, really, truly convincible

for the ignorant, patience and tolerance
for the stupid a heart felt sufferance
no resentments allowed, know that forgiveness heals
a contrite heart to the world appeals

be the person your God wants you to be
the soul that is happy, joyous and free
