My Soul, My Senses

.

“Like poetry,

in times of intense emotion

the image returns to me.

Like poetry, it stroked

my soul and, by turns,

lulled and stoked my senses.”

.

― Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

Poem:

time to duck into fantasyland
what to do when reality sucks
reality, where everything fun has been banned
and even the the worst will cost you big bucks

let’s all go down the hole and meet the Mad Hatter
a place where there are no lines of race or creed
a land where politically correct doesn’t matter
where victories are won and no one has to bleed

then there are the delightful perks
the chocolate ice cream has no calories
lose weight by thinking about what works
toys run forever, no need for batteries

no greed eliminates the need for police or politics
everyone you meet wears a smile on their face
rewards for everyone with no need to do tricks
taking only what you need, remembering God’s grace

awakened by the boombox thats a mile away
oh what can I do, just hope and pray

The Crazy Thing

.

“The crazy thing

about poetry

is how

its simplicity

makes it complicated.”

.

― Richelle E. Goodrich

Elfje:

.

faith

more that

you give away

more you will receive

paradox

.

Haiku:

.

brown fields gently sleep

spring rains awakens their souls

colors shout new life

.

Poem:

.

winner, winner
chicken dinner
sometimes a win is a loss
a rolling stone gathers no moss

who’s keeping score anyways
are you always seeking praise
if you mind, does it matter
if it matters, should you mind

Geisel thrived on nonsense
who lives in your subconscious
can you say you’re in your right mind
or do you listen to the mind chatter

remember, God knows what you are thinking
is the thinking stinking from too much drinking
blessed to know the things I can change
it is the attitude that  we can rearrange

the moral, the lesson, don’t think too much
life is best lived with a soft touch
