No / Yes

.

“After the final no

there comes a yes /

And on that yes

the future world depends.”

.

― Wallace Stevens

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

action

doing something

with a purpose

going forward, not backwards

reaction

.

Haiku:

.

spring rains have arrived

brown earth turns to vibrant green

flowers add color

.

Poem:                  (Roundelay)

.

in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

a destination reached by a wish and a prayer
the store with a hundred flavors of ice cream
to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

to a place that has no care
precariously perched upon a balance beam
the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

the joy of being able to share
proud to be a member of the winning team
in a hurry to go nowhere
hitching a ride on a moonbeam
a world to conquer if I dare
a reality manufactured in a dream

Invisible

.

“The poet is

the priest

of the

invisible.”

.

— Wallace Stevens

.

.

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

twilight

in camouflage

concealed in color

birds chirp evening psalms

invisible

.

Haiku:

.

blizzard of brightness

an invisible world

a winter white out

.

Poem:

love lost, love gained
the backbone of music and verse
life’s tribulations to be explained

emotions usually hid in a closet
songs vicariously used to emote
seeking a ride on a fantasy rocket

love yourself, love others
some preach unconditional love
the best love comes from Mothers

when one is feeling down and small
it is best to remember
God loves us all
