A True Poet

.

“He who draws noble delights

from sentiments of poetry

is a true poet,

though he has never written

a line in all his life.”

.

~ George Sand

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

poem

oral history

before written word

rhymes easy to remember

bard

.

Haiku:

.

a bright sunny day

window view comfortable

winter’s chill outside

.

Poem:

.

mother cultivated the beautiful iris
from Spanish iris translates to mean rainbow
exquisite colors which remain nameless
captured in the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh

pleasurable emotions tied to beauty
all creation is in perfect balance
except for the crazy who are a little fruity
and those who went down the hole with Alice

the birds and the bees, nature’s splendor
the males awesome colors to attract a mate
the sitting female camouflaged to fool the predator
except for the nerd who can’t get a date

we guess the exception is there to keep the balance
a unique place for the wanna be, the pretender
what God has provided in normals absence
in a mother’s heart everyone is a contender

Makes Me Dream

.

“For my part

I know nothing

with any certainty,

but the sight

of the stars

makes me dream.”

.

~  Vincent Van Gogh

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

stargaze

mind unfettered

thoughts of fantasy

hopes and wishes made

daydreams

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

revenge being sought

ugly mind

ego puncturing

.

Poem:

.

can you believe the noise of the universe
man’s interference only making it worse
short wave, long wave, the queens wave
man has just crawled out of his cave

reality is faced with a population explosion
global warming is creating an implosion
crocodile tears for the next generation
hope they can find a cure for stagflation

maybe they will just invent another word
how many flavors can they add to bean curd
the future is a question without an answer
history is the story of the gandy dancer

today is the future and history rolled into one
ignore the questions and go have some fun
