A Separate Experience

.

.

Literature is not

a picture of life,

but is a separate experience

with its own kind of flow

and enhancement.”

.


~ William Stafford

red

the stripes

the stars white

a flag to honor

blue

Haiku:

.

flowers need water
lack of rain is apparent
what is God planning

.

Poem:

.

those who can’t, teach
critics who can’t, preach
the human form of the leech

it is so easy to pick on others
done by those who don’t like their mothers
the loners who can’t be like brothers

governments just wanting to placate the herd
politically correct and gender neutral preferred
unfortunately love has become a passé word

woe is the man whose ego is right sized
by the really sick he is totally despised
as a milk toast he is characterized

keep on praying, don’t be afraid
big money has manufactured this charade
they know that there is no free in free trade

there will come a day that no one can predict
one can only hope that it will be a peaceful conflict
hopefully it is the winning side that peace has picked

today, try to make your own choices
be wary of the devil and his many voices
don’t let social media control your devices

don’t teach, don’t preach, share the love
vote for those who believe that there is a God above
and just stay out of the way when push comes to shove

In Slow Motion

.

.

Poetry

is prose

in slow

motion.”

.

― Nicholson Baker,

The Anthologist

.

.

Elfje:

.

hurry

run fast

with head down

no place to go

emotions

.

Haiku:

.

the hummingbird flits

in slow motion it’s still fast

summers brilliant gem

.

Poem:

.

I still know no better
errors, screw-ups and mistakes
nickname was the flake
never needed an abettor

a Higher Power was my protector
should have died a couple of times
never caught doing the crimes
could never pass the lie detector

today is a new way of thinking
before the act understand the consequences
before the bet take care of the expenses
it all begins with no more drinking

thoughts and actions guided by God’s will
faith that I’m protected by  fairy godmothers
finding the most satisfaction helping others
working for dreams and wishes to fulfill

life, as always, a matter of choices
learning that there are another options
seeking out the most enjoyable actions
finding pleasure in listening to the voices

hopefully, today, that voice will be yours.

ME and the Boss
