Tales To Spin

.

“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”

.

― Shel Silverstein

.

Elfje:

.

imagination

contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed

tales

.

Haiku:

.

what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place

.

Poem:

.

let go or be pulled along

replace it with something better

does every life need a theme song

are we marked with a scarlet letter

.

seeking positive reinforcement

family and friends the preferred source

proud to receive a personal endorsement

stepping stones to  life’s best course

.

the devil dines on the negative

set your table with the bright optimistic

the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited

allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic

.

focused on the here and now

have faith, you do know how.

Nonsense

.

“If I had a world of my own,

everything would be nonsense.

Nothing would be what it is,

because everything would be 

what it isn’t.

And contrary wise, what is, 

it wouldn’t be.

And what it wouldn’t be,

it would.

You see?”

.

~ Lewis Carroll

.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

.

Elfje:

.

diametric

opposite worlds

inverse to reverse

assumed to be real

nonsense

.

Haiku

.

the jabberwocky

doesn’t need make any sense

natures world does

,

Poem:

.

poetry so serious

the truth so mysterious

thinking outside of the box

being as sly as a fox

.

do poems need to be true

words all mixed up like a stew

having fun piquing one’s imagination

choosing a lyric that is thracian

.

defining the poets little world by writing

avoiding the mundane by trying to be exciting

making it up as they go along

glad to know that they can’t be wrong

.

those who can’t rhyme as they compose

justify the effort by calling it poetic prose

the poem should always be a total performance

even when the content is gobbledygook nonsense

.

believe, you are a poet, you simply don’t know it

just pretend that you’re building a banana split

so write, write, the words precisely right

and allow your soul to take flight.

ME and the Boss

don’t know what from this might be,

just made it up ….
