Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

planning tomorrow

trying not to make God laugh

learning the lesson

lucky is being prepared

to meet opportunity

.

Poem:

.

dreaming of things that will never be
people, places and riches that I will never see
positions of power that I could never achieve
feats of glory that no one would ever believe

always content to just be little old me
enjoying a life that is simple, carefree
almost on the verge of being complacent
doing my best to try everyone’s patience

if the questions wrong there is no answer
like why is hate such a ruinous cancer
the right question is who do you love
the answer should be everyone and God above

deliberately avoiding any philosophy
friends are those who share in honesty
enjoying the Creators grand design
sunrise, sunset, every one a beautiful shrine

both young and old go forth to seek peace
may your love of mankind never cease

Exaltation Of The Mind

“A song is

the exaltation

of the mind

dwelling on eternal things,

bursting forth in the voice.”

.

― Thomas Aquinas

saint

beyond kind

secret gift giver

his intercessions worked miracles

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

.

Cupid’s arrow strikes

the smitten don’t understand

is it love or lust

.

Poem:

.

sing a song of romance
love will give you the chance
for the one who receives your affection
mesmerized at first glance

the heart feels the inflection
the mind believes it is perfection
the whole world becomes satisfying
all things glow with a rosy reflection

passions arise which are gratifying
a steadfast devotion which is undying
love will give you the chance
don’t doubt, believe in the mystifying

love does not arrive by happenstance
God’s design includes all circumstance
