Stupider

.

“Now the trouble

about trying to

make yourself stupider

than you really are

is that you very often

succeed.”

.

~C. S. Lewis

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

sin

in hell

guilt and shame

to be a fool

flaw

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

forever the fool

not being true to myself

trying to be more

I cannot be embarrassed

because I am always right

.

Poem:

.

the farmer works 24/7, 365
his show is never taped, always live
following nature he knows all of the rules
experience and passion provide him the tools

from drought to flood natures rules do change
life is not always easy on the grange
the fickle consumer wants no GMO’s
yet they still buy all of those false promos

thank God for farmers, I love to eat
brought to the grocery store down the street
choices,  breakfast, lunch and dinner
if I choose right my diet can be a winner

please say a prayer for a bumper crop
may the farmer always come out on top

A Meteor

.

“A poem

is a

meteor.”

.

~ Wallace Stevens

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

vaporize

or explode

into earth’s atmosphere

God’s nightly fireworks display

meteor

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

happiness expressed

joyful heart

silent gratitude

Poem:

.

there is this place I call never-the-less
to all of my friends I give free access
the place is filled with excuses galore
who could wish for anything more

the place is a series of rooms, nooks and crannies
there is an cool pond to keep fire from the fannies
there is a looking glass that can see future trouble
it has yet to learn how to pick the daily double

make yourself fit using the many trick mirrors
there are free warm hugs when you get the shivers
the ceiling is made from the trees of knowledge and life
a picture of Heavens peace when man gives up strife

come visit, we’ll have lunch and go exploring
we’ll make a plan for man his faith restoring
regardless, at any rate, we can all be the critic
all the same, in any event, I’ll be there in spirit

never-the-less, we can all do it anyhow, God willing
never-the-less, we’ll never do it anyway, fates fulfilling
