In My Life

I –

will have poetry

in my life.

And adventure.

And love.

Love above all.”

splish

bubbly water

taking a bath

on a Saturday night

splash

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

butterflies galore

senses swelled by the garden

joy and happiness

Poem:  **     ABba/abAB/abbaA    (rondel)

who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese
add a drizzle of honey from the bees
an appreciated staple for the breakfast table

the immigrants recipe came from an angel
everything or cinnamon raisin if you please
who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese

for many connoisseurs lox are a staple
a mixed bakers dozen are just a tease
all washed down with a juice you squeeze
finagle a bagel whenever you are able
who doesn’t love a holey bagel

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?

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

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

.
