Bring Some Of It With You

.

“You will

find poetry

nowhere

unless you bring

some of it with you.”

.

― Joseph Joubert

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

rhyme

shared thoughts

reader to listener

audience to the writer

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

freezing rain breaks boughs

nature’s attempt to prune limbs

springs healthy new growth

.

Poem:

.

once there were a happy people
living and loving very peaceful
every house had a heaven pointing steeple
children played and laughed gleeful

could there ever again be such a place
acceptance did not depend on your face
everyone respected each others space
there was only one human race

can politicians dictate such a thing
do miracles arrive on an angel’s wing
faithful marriages signed with a ring
harmonies that all are able to sing

will geneticist eventually eliminate the ego
no more testing with a placebo
no man made boundaries, you are free to go
peace and love the only credo

let us all raise a grateful prayer
work together to clear the air
eliminate the threat of warfare
solve the need for welfare

know that time will go on without us
only evil thoughts should be treasonous
most hopes and dreams are superfluous
God,
just let me be another bozo on the bus

Whatever It Is

.

“I am solitary

as grass.

What is it I miss?

Shall I ever find it,

whatever it is?”

.
~ Sylvia Plath

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

stupid

can’t learn

memorized by rote

having not yet learned

ignorant

.

Haiku:

.

bright lightning flashes

loud thunder claps following

furious wind gust

.

Poem:

.

It goes, whatever It is.
It will go on without me.
It is life, the quiz.
It is never free.

It is the good question.
It is the dubious answer.
It is the impression.
It is the brain power.

if I caught It
what would I do with It
life is such a nebulous It
living is to enjoy It

It comes.
It goes.
is It a plan from a Higher Source
It is whatever you want It to be

tag – – – your It
