The Originality

.

“Thank goodness

I was never

sent to school;

it would have

rubbed off some

of the originality.”

.

~ Beatrix Potter

.

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

.

new

not old

first time through

not a used thing

fresh

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

an original

avant-garde

hopefully better

.

Poem:

.

be happy you are you and not me
inside of others heads we cannot see
I am happy to be me and not you
then, neither of us would have a clue

let the children be children
their personality is already built in
let others be others if they must
it is only in God that we can trust

billions of souls every one of them unique
the fortunate survive to become an antique
just be glad that you are you
find the way, you may become a guru*

.

  • *guru   ” from Hindi and Punjabi, from Sanskrit guru
    ‘weighty, grave’ (compare with Latin gravis ),
    hence ‘elder, teacher’.”
    gu – one, an elder   ru – who shows the way, teacher

As The Wind Blows

.

“Write as

the wind blows

and command

all words

like an army!”

.

~ Hilaire Belloc

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

go

this way

and that way

as the wind blows

flow

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

they would not, could not

show any true emotions

children of abuse

.

Poem:

.

he awoke from a pleasant dream
lying  softly next to a gurgling stream
life was going good or so it seemed
actually better than he had ever dreamed

there was a time when things were bleak
his soul was lost he thought he was unique
his life was held in the grip of an addiction
humbled to his knees with a life of dereliction

a disease that is physical, mental and spiritual
to a cure which is in the realm of metaphorical
beyond self help it takes a collaboration
shown a pathway by the healed’s affirmation

following their suggestions he became humble
he salvaged a life that was about to crumble
promises made, promises kept
life is no struggle when you learn to accept
