Feel

“It is not

half so

important

to know

as to feel.”

sense

goose bumps

move the soul

true heart felt love

feel

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

missing the loved one

absence makes heart grow fonder

taking forever

Poem:

.

God grant me some patience and tolerance
to find a place in a social distancing audience
a curmudgeon in recovery can still think of others
can they be brothers from different mothers

as one gets older do you forget your manners
do parents no longer teach social standards
sorry doesn’t cut it, please excuse me
you will not be invited for tea at three

cutting in line, like there won’t be enough
confronted they become filled with huff and puff
a whole generation living off the dole
enough votes to give bad politicians control

Woodstock was a peaceful demonstration
today’s aberration it is nothing but aggravation
looting and arson are not a protest
liberals objecting to the rioters arrest

pray that sanity will someday be restored
that civil unrest will not be ignored
that life again may start moving forward
a peace and calm will be the reward

snow can’t hide crocus

first sign of spring lifts its head

waiting the robin

Poem:

.

is your God Hole filled to capacity
that place in your chest next to the heart
where the candle of love fosters sagacity
where emotions give tears their start

you can see the glow in a soul who knows peace
a smile and a kind word always on their lips
their patience and tolerance seem to never cease
forgiveness is not a game played with poker chips

the man who glows knows unconditional love
his God hole grows with everyone he greets
he knows that his blessings come from above
his glow grows brighter with every soul he meets

be the brightest soul on earth
let you God hole candle glow
do the next right thing for all your worth
let the words and deeds be apropos
