Borrowed Words

.

.

“Next o’er his books

his eyes began to roll,

In pleasing memory

of all he stole.”

.

~  Alexander Pope

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

read

magic words

between the lines

what others have penned

write

.

Haiku:

.

the days become short

sunlight barely warms the soul

winter chill arrives

.

Poem:

.

everyone’s words, only my feelings
every day new beginnings
songs sung without a tune
cryptic stories spelled out in rune

time marches along in single file
illusions dance just once in awhile
memories walk beside those who contrive
the future stands for those who survive>

results commensurate with what we spend
don’t critique if you did not attend
soon, to breathe, you’ll need a permit
to the Big Brother we all will submit

whatever means we need to employ
so that this life we may enjoy

Living Poems

.

.

“Ye are better than all the ballads

That ever were sung or said;

For ye are living poems,

And all the rest are dead.”

.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

chantey

folk song 

poemtalesaga

sung by Burl Ives

ballad

.

Haiku:

.

hurricane season

tropical storms bring ruin

man has no recourse

.

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

.

rainbows bring their hope

life and spirits lifted up

smiles with ohs and ahs

.

Poem:

.

the weather has a profound force
one’s moods it does endorse

clouds and rain a feeling of doom
grey and black describing gloom

a calm starry night renders awe
magnified when viewed upon the utah

bright sunlight warms the soul
a creators vision to extol

rainbows and butterflies
smiles, to the eyes a colorful prize

equatorial deserts and muggy rain forest
nice to visit if you are a tourist

beware of the cold , the blizzard
accused of creating the lounge lizard

for those whose winter sports are euphoric
they need to learn the word phantasmagoric*

how to beat the weather blues
time to take a Caribbean/Mediterranean cruise

defeat the weather, put on a happy mood
for being able to put your mind anywhere, have gratitude

*phantasmagoric:  having a fantastic or deceptive appearance,
as something in a dream or created by the imagination.
having the appearance of an optical illusion, especially one
produced by a magic lantern. The Greek word phantasma,
meaning “image,” is the ancestor of phantasmagoric, a word
you can use to describe anything so weird it doesn’t seem real.
