A Voice

.

.

“Was not writing poetry

a secret transaction,

a voice answering a voice?”

.

~ Virginia Woolf

.

.

Elfje:

.

sound

carrying thoughts

tone and inflection

quietly in my mind

voices

.

Haiku:

.

nobody but you

alone is not possible

the universe speaks

.

Poem:

.

to myself only am I known
the heart and soul always masked
always pretending to be alone

the projected persona is gregarious
the insides are roiling and knotted
if you knew, it would be hilarious

at one time the emotions were perceived as suffering
over the years those feelings have become quotidian
I now find that my misery is habitual and comforting

found a friend with whom I could commensurate
a loving Higher Power who has all of the answers
He notes that my emotional responses are inveterate

new sympathies for the old dog are difficult at best
a better way of thinking has become my quest

ME and the Boss

In Between

.

“I love you

as certain dark things

are to be loved,

in secret,

between the shadow

and the soul.”

.

― Pablo Neruda

.

I was going to write only once a week, Monday, on this blog

but here it is Friday, and the bug has bitten me, in between

the shadow and my soul, and the voice is yelling to be free,

hence a ditty or two.

.

Elfje:

Soul

Ethereal being

Voice inside me

My connection to God

Eternal

.

Haiku:

Define moral sense

Does the soul leave a shadow

Is it the conscience

.

Haiku:     (in the more traditional sense … seasonal)

winters long shadows

soul longs for eternity

life’s always too short

.

 don’t think so hard :  a poem … of sorts … 

.

don’t think so hard
go with the flow
don’t reveal your cards
enjoy God’s show

life can be difficult if you make it
trying to keep body, mind and soul in sync
life can be easy if you take it
all you need is the color pink

a silly day, a belly laugh
time to relax, rest and regale
take a snapshot, save the photograph
teach someone to love by using braille

call a friend, make a friend, be a friend
the Great Creator made this world a buffet
an honest effort is all you need to spend
please, delight in every moment of today

.

ME and the Boss

.

to feel better, laugh with others, not at others.
