The Longest Distance

.

“In philosophy,

as in politics,

the longest distance

between two points

is a straight line.”

.

~ Will Durant

Elfje:            (Cinquain)     
.
draw
go over
make a mark
not a straight line
trace
.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
acting silly helps
avoiding reality
tense emotions eased
.

Poem:
.

relax, listen to your inner guidance
God will talk to you in the silence
choose to listen which is the next right thing
God’s choir is provided when the angels sing

prayer and meditation really work
serenity and peace of mind a Godly perk
all efforts designed to bring a spiritual experience
from self will run riot to God’s will with obedience

the silence broken by the sounds of laughter
fitting in to a fellowship that we sought after
a place to learn what is the next right thing
experience, strength and hope which you may bring

work your program, walk the walk
from the heart whenever you may talk
be the person you Higher Power wants you to be
Honest, Open-minded, Willing and free

my silly faux pas

red faced with nowhere to hide

laughing at myself

Poem:   just because they rhyme

.

the secretary is adept at billing,
has to be the best at answering the phone

the wine cooler is best for chilling,
not cold enough for the ice cream cone

the dentist is known for his drilling,
skills the patient wishes he has hone

the turkey is enhanced by its filling,
everyone fighting for the wishbone

events are more social with tailgate grilling
fanatics with seats near the home team’s end zone

artisan breads start with unique milling,
you don’t need to be British to enjoy a scone

it is an art to eat soup without spilling,
slurping accepted in the right tone

feeding the pigs is sloppy swilling,
a job much better done by a drone

to each their own for what is thrilling,
some can even do it alone

the garden weeds pulled by tilling,
the lazy cover everything with stone

the start of every success begins with willing
doing God’s will can put you on a throne

in the name of religion can man stop killing,
unfounded fear and ego to which we are prone
