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

Good Poets Poems

.

.

If poets often commit suicide,

it is not because their poems

are bad

but because they

are good.

Whoever heard of a bad poet

committing suicide?

~ Walker Percy,

Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

attitude

negative, positive

one’s personal outlook

coping with the world

adjustment

.

Haiku:

.

universe explodes

expanding at hyper speed

time is man’s concept

.

Poem:

.

you must give up all hope
for a better past*
walking the slippery slope
tomorrow will be here too fast

living in the here and now
with an attitude of gratitude
contemplating the why or how
relying on God for fortitude

life is nothing but a decision
history a vague reference point
hindsight is always 20-20 vision
only the good shall we anoint

what was done, was done
today, let’s all have some fun

.
