What’s Important

.

“Poetry is not

the most important

thing in life…

I’d much rather lie

in a hot bath

reading Agatha Christie

and sucking sweets.

.

~ Dylan Thomas

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

sweet

dessert first

vanilla or chocolate

cake, pie, ice cream

delicious

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

voyeur hides his glance

invading your privacy

grabbing a sick thrill

.

Poem:

.

thunderstorms welcome the summer solstice
birds, bees and trees have a thankful cordis
the farmer amused to hear his corn growing
the stream in the meadow close to overflowing

while in the city there are riots of anarchy
youthful exuberance on the verge of insanity
looting and pillaging just because they can
motives falsely stated by the leftist newsman

no mind, no matter, just worlds apart
just hatred and fear, no loving heart
will the vote bring the country together
or will we be in for some rough weather

will the left take some rights away
can one be punished for what they don’t say
can the conservatives win a peace
will there always be a need for police

why worry, just try your best to be content
write a poem if you really need to vent
we will never know all of the conspiracy theories
just get it done so we can have a World Series

Cheese

.

.

“Poets

have been

mysteriously

silent on the

subject of cheese.”

.

― G.K. Chesterton

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

reborn

new start

changing bad habits

aspirations for better living

rejuvenated

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

news to influence

listening to the talking head

opinions disguised

assuming that no one thinks

what can one person do – vote

.

Poem:
.

mermaid kisses and starfish wishes
remembered dreams that are so delicious
light and airy, a contented happy heart
every moment a chance to have a fresh start

whatever happens it is God’s will
don’t give credence to a molehill
for the best life move on and accept
the universe knows that we have wept

relax, no worries, no frown
don’t let the little things get you down
go with nice people and go to good places
kindness is always rewarded with graces

an enlightened soul rolls with the tides
enjoying sand dollar millions and unicorn rides
