Good Poets Poems

.

.

If poets often commit suicide,

it is not because their poems

are bad

but because they

are good.

Whoever heard of a bad poet

committing suicide?

~ Walker Percy,

Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book

attitude

negative, positive

one’s personal outlook

coping with the world

adjustment

.

Haiku:

.

universe explodes

expanding at hyper speed

time is man’s concept

.

Poem:

.

you must give up all hope
for a better past*
walking the slippery slope
tomorrow will be here too fast

living in the here and now
with an attitude of gratitude
contemplating the why or how
relying on God for fortitude

life is nothing but a decision
history a vague reference point
hindsight is always 20-20 vision
only the good shall we anoint

what was done, was done
today, let’s all have some fun

.

But Be

.

“A poem

should not

mean

But be.”

.

― Archibald MacLeish,

Collected Poems, 1917-1982

.

.

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

exist

must be

visable or tangible

not in the imagination

consist

.

Haiku:

.

happy larks warble

no concern for life or death

God is positive

.

Poem:

.

why me
am I am who I am
do I need a church key
does anyone give a damn

what does it mean to be free
will there be a final exam
is it more than the bird and the bee
was this world just a sham

can I just cop a plea
can I be as happy as a clam
scoring points on bended knee
why doesn’t everyone have to get with the plan

is there a God to play emcee
can my ego handle a grand slam
what really is my cup of tea
must I follow the flow diagram

too many questions,
never an answer
why not me
I’m just glad that I am
