More Useful

.

“The poet

must be

more useful

than any

other member

of his tribe.”

.

Comte de Lautréamont

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

tribe
his kin
your own folk
our band with pride
clan

scent was in the air
met a pie man goin’ where
to the county fair

one a penny hot crossed bun
a pun can be so much fun

.

Poem:

.

it was a full moon, what a scare
heard noises but nothing was there
men in wolves clothing were howling
the old wives faces were scowling

the shining brought out the lunatic
tricks to be played on the local dipstick
lore propagated by the areas monsters
what evils lurk in the deep ponds waters

souls revisiting on all hallows eve
reminders for those left to greave
could the cow jump over the moon
lovers taking the time to spoon

the moon is such a wonderful topic
except for those who are totally myopic

Today’s Word

.

“For last year’s words

belong to

last year’s language

And next year’s words

await another voice.”

.

~ T.S. Eliot

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

trash

man’s refuse

unneeded and unwanted

a treasure for nobody

garbage

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

listen everyone

pending storm

very quiet night

.

Poem:     sonnet: the weather

.

thunder rolls past every afternoon
daily showers bring humidity
gulf winds bring in the monsoon
stifling weather breeds stupidity

lightning kills more than all other storms
It never rains on a golf course
best time to dig for fishing worms
rain cannot wash away remorse

weather the topic, safe to discuss
accept what it is without making a fuss
some like it  cool, some like it hot
easy, just move to your ideal spot

change is the only thing you can expect
without having to be politically correct
