No Fear

.

.

Don’t

be afraid

of poetry.”

.

~ Clifton Fadiman

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

poet

who writ

don’t know it

but it does rhyme

verse

.

Senryu: 5 , 7 , 5 syllables with people and their emotions as a subject.

.

anger starts with fear

we didn’t get what we wanted

you took advantage

.

Poem:

.

gentle waves of warm water cover the feet
the sun providing a glorious bone warming heat
any day at the beach will soothe the soul
nature reinforcing that God is in control

evolution is such a marvelous thing
only the crazy to the past want to cling
revolution is not necessarily evolution
anarchy is never a very good solution

peace, make love not war
use science to give everyone more
think of the consequences, not just the profits
believe that the Creator knows more than the prophets

predicting the future we all must agree
it is as easy as following the greed
why listen to entertainers and TV show host
their agenda is not as friendly as Casper the Ghost

today, be kind, be loving and watch what you say
and when all else fails, take the time to pray

A Moment’s Thinking

.

“A moment’s

thinking

is an hour

in words.”

.

~ Thomas Hood

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

excuse

plausible cause

communicate a reason

in so many words

explain

.

Haiku:

.

a perfect season

long hot days and muggy nights

summer grows the crops

.

Poem:

.

star crossed lovers see only each other
completely absorbed in one another
the moon or honeymoon will eventually be over
life is not always a bed of clover

for the majority there is a compromise
they bury the hatchet which is very wise
for the selfish sicky the war only escalates
for the sake of a pun they end up as stalemates

only the sickest hold a resentment forever
the wise are smart enough to never say never
human nature says that most relationships mellow
love and compassion make for the best bedfellow

I had a friend, to stay married it took him three tries
he learned to give, he learned to share, surprise
no secrets, she lets him know when things are not right
he said chivalry is not dead, he is now the white knight

may God bless all of your relationships
may your love avoid the apocalypse
