Yearning In Desire

.

“And this gray spirit

yearning in desire

To follow knowledge

like a sinking star,

Beyond the utmost bound

of human thought.

.

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

opine

your interpretation

what should be

not what could be

editorialize

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

emotional tic

tears for every occasion

a heartfelt response

feelings that reflect instincts

sensations keeping life real

.

Poem:

.

amazed to see dancing elephants
not your usual vision of elegance

minds that create wonderful fantasy
learning your own meaning of insanity
excessive pride leads to vanity

is there really such a thing as normal
the happiest are those who live informal
the young do not have an exclusive on vernal

forget resentments, let go and let God
there isn’t a soul that is not flawed
to those who are due, stand and applaud

the winners always think positive
leaders communicate in the demonstrative
you can never be too old to be cognitive

for only the best, profound respect is reverent
gloriously unique, everyone is different
know that this world is absolutely magnificent

awe struck by the breaching of whales
a joy to be entertained by fantastic tales

Gushes Poetry

“I opened my veins.

Unstoppably life spurts out

with no remedy.

Now I set out

bowls and plates.

Every bowl will be shallow.

Every plate will be small.

And overflowing their rims,

into the black earth

to nourish the rushes,

unstoppably without cure,  gushes poetry …”

.

~ Marina Tsvetaeva

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

shallow

not deep

a transparent person

motives on the surface

superficial

.

Haiku:

.

on oceans high tides

moon makes its monthly cycle

sailors set their sails

.

Poem:

.

it’s easy to have an awesome day
just be careful of what you say

be nice to the little old lady next door
guidance from a Higher Power implore
wants or needs, be careful what you ask for

believe that souls exist without colors
healthy children respect their mothers
the happiest treat everyone like brothers
sharing unconditional love with others

be patient with those who are innocent
be tolerant of those who are ignorant
forgive the eclectic who think they are different

just be the person God wants you to be
enjoying a life that is happy, joyous and free

.

Comment:

God’s will for me is to: be nice, be loving, be patient, be tolerant,

be forgiving and just be the person He wants me to be.
