Poem

.

It started out with kisses

quickly escalated to an altercation

toe to toe

face to face

the screaming

the yelling

inferences to the animal donkey

naming family who resembled the monkey

I can’t remember who threw the vase

if only I hadn’t said

kiss my ass

No Interpreter Needed

.

“Great poetry

needs no interpreter

other than a

responsive heart.”

.

― Helen Keller

Elfje:

.

feelings

emotionally charged

accepting what comes

life on life’s terms   (Life on God’s terms)

human

.

Haiku:

.

the shores sandy dunes

pushed by the oceans currents

summer vacation

.

Poem:

.

some say the best poems extol the virtues of love

while soaring above on the wings of a dove

stories about feelings, fears and life

worries about things that cause angst and strife

.

every day the feelings are different

those without mothers become the ignorant

books with stories teach us how to feel

family and friends explain that which is real

.

some seek to alter the mood so they need not think

can’t figure out why when they lie to the shrink

sad are those whose brains are on a perpetual swing

ups and downs caused by the brains short circuit wiring

.

lucky are those whose friends have feelings that are mutual

the paranoid, the loner are not that unusual

will man ever be able to fix the brain

can there be a time when no one will be insane

.

until medicine finds the cure

self education will be the basic tool

learning to live the Golden Rule

hope’s of growing up and becoming mature
