Fossil Poetry

Language

is

fossil Poetry.”


~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Elfje: (Cinquain) Classic, each word only a single syllable.

.

words

you said

nouns and verbs

a tone of voice

speech

Haiku:

pitter patter rain

seedling needs food, sunshine

Gods hydroponics

Poem:

.

he was dreaming of building a rocket
while wearing a hat like Davy Crockett
no dreams, much to young to smoke a pipe
most of the world saw him as a stereotype

mumbled and stumbled through life as a teenager
went to college but could never declare a major
got drunk and was kicked out of the fraternity
managed to impregnate the ugliest girl in the sorority

never confused with being an eager beaver
managed to survive as an underachiever
alcohol and drugs he turned into an abuse
the mean ugly world gave him an excuse

since we love happy endings, we’ll give him recovery
finding the truth was a road of discovery
he now lives a life that is happy, joyous and free
believing in a Higher Power was beginning key

to the still sick and suffering he shares his story
to the God of his understanding he gives a glory
more sobriety, more keys, more doors to open
enjoying the best world he could have ever chosen

We Enter Art

.

…sometimes we enter art

to hide within it.

It is where we can go

to save ourselves,

where a third-person voice

protects us.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

voice

express emotions

sing a song

say what you think

communicate

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

for instant pleasure

broken hearts

games some people play

.

Poem:

.

feel the word, think love
enjoy the blessings from above
the more you give, the more you receive
a grateful heart will easily perceive

peace begins with me
be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
a grateful heart knows serenity
no need to hide a secret identity

to have a friend, be a friend
every effort is worth the dividend
sharing the ups, the downs and the in between
living in divine grace as did Saint Augustine

eliminate the limits, think big
be faithful and never, ever renege
don’t grow too old before your time
believe that today you are in your prime

try to make this world a better place
do anything that will improve the human race
share something that will make everyone laugh
or donate to charity with your autograph
