It Found Me

.

“I wasn’t meant

for reality,

but life came

and found me.”

.

~ Fernando Pessoa

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

frost

cold rime

creek to lake

all things that froze

ice

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

winter cold persist

glad to see daylight growing

spring stands in the wings

.

Poem:

.

magnolia blossoms aroma wafted above
young hearts below dreaming of love
springs chilly rain waters tomorrows hope
urges so strong that make some want to elope

generation after generation, God’s design
who can argue that it is not divine
fill your dreams with all you can imagine
be ready to accept whatever may happen

the quiet mind knows serene
renew ancient faith as did St. Augustine
with this life there is not a guarantee
it will be or it was meant not to be             (said Shakespeare)

stay young and always dream of love
for love will bring blessings from above

Your Apprenticeship

.

Most people

won’t realize that

writing is a craft.

You have to take

your apprenticeship in it

like anything else.”

.

~ Katherine Anne Porter

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

savor

taste good

sweet and sour

food hits the spot

flavor

.

Haiku:

.

daylight starts to wane

cool mornings herald winter

migrations begin

.

Poem:   no rhyme today, just a prose rambling

.

a little bird sitting upon a line
don’t do it, don’t do it,  don’t
he did it
poor  Miguel

he opened his thermos
the soup was cold

he opened his bucket
the bread had mold

he was too close to the mud puddle
when the bus came along

he was one number off
when the lotto was drawn

it was just one of those days
when nothing went right

along came Sofia
for Miguel a perfect sight

isn’t it wonderful how love
makes everything alright
