The Soul Of Poetry

“Real haiku is the soul of poetry.

Anything that is not actually

present in one’s heart is not haiku.

The moon glows, flowers bloom,

insects cry, water flows.  .  .  .

 This is the essence of haiku.

moon

synodic month

earth’s only satellite

a clear nights extravaganza

lunar

.

Haiku:

.

cricket songs have ceased

the rivers and lakes frozen

winters solid grip

.

.

Poem:

.

enjoying life with a true passion
smug as a bug in a rug satisfaction
not to worry that the bubble will burst
when we die we’ll be over the worst

fingers, toes and eyes crossed
praying for luck whatever the cost
seeking places that induce laughter
who cares what may be in the hereafter

serving coffee, tea or me
just be the person you want to be
laugh, lust, just don’t get caught
only God knows what you thought

find yourself a new definition for fun
something to enjoy when you are on the run
find people and places that can fill the bill
make sure that everything flows from your free will

hope you enjoy this silly rhyme
know it was not a waste of time
today, be serious only when you need to be
just remember to giggle when you go to pee

Springtime Is Lovetime

.

“sweet spring

is your time

is my time

is our time

for springtime is lovetime

and viva sweet love”

stuck

which way

water, water everywhere

an island unto himself

marooned

.

Haiku:

.

flying geese honking

signs that seasons are changing

fleeing winter’s chill

.

.

Poem:

.

never ever stop being a child
laugh everyday
sing everyday
let your imagination run wild

be grown up serious when it’s needed
play everyday
pray everyday
a good attitude can never be defeated

be willing to share all of your world
love everyday
cry everyday
always have your flag of peace unfurled

happiness, the commandments to obey
be the person God wants you to be,
everyday
