It’s Ended

.

“How does a poet

know when a poem

is ended?

Because it lies flat, taut;

nothing can be added

or subtracted.”

~ Carol Shields

Elfje: Cinquain

.

one

or two

but not three

no need to count

more

.

Haiku:

.

the wild universe

natural phenomenon

ever evolving

.

Poem:

.

good , better, best
another day that God has blessed
new events we call the news
usually something that we do not choose

a good day, nothing happened at all
not even handwriting on the wall
food on the table, the roof stayed up
love overflowed the proverbial cup

a better day, something really nice happened
an incident that no one could have imagined
the post it note for a happy memory
a warm thought for the hearts treasury

the best day, God had better plans than I did
on that day He proved that every pot has a lid
it was the day He introduced me to the one I love
daily I thank the heavens and the God above

blessings for you, may today be your best
may you easily pass every stress test
pray that your silver linings turn to gold
may the love you give be returned two fold

The Ability To Dream

.

“The ability to dream

is all I have to give.

That is my responsibility;

that is my burden.

And even I grow tired.”

.

~ Harlan Ellison

.

.

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

.

grow

so slow

in a row

go with the flow

know

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.

the earth goes around

April showers, May flowers

seasons come and go

Mother Nature is alive

even after we succumb

.

Poem:
.
God is good, all the time
from the omnipotent to the sublime
a Higher Power with many names
studied in a book by William James

the Universe is good and filled with love
all the blessings emanate from above
humans are the perpetrator of all evil
man has invented everything that is illegal

begins with a thought, then the reaction
only the good and love ends in satisfaction
immoral thoughts, wrong actions, a daily double
a dreary future facing so much trouble

Today, be the person your God wants you to be
hopefully one who is happy, joyous and free
