Like Beautiful Music

.

“A poet is an unhappy being
whose heart is torn
by secret sufferings,
but whose lips are so
strangely formed that when
the sighs and the cries
escape them, they sound
like beautiful music.”

.

― Soren Kierkegaard

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

sound

two feet

hale and hearty

planted on the ground

healthy

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

music to my ears

symphony

orchestra in tune

.

Poem:

.

am I hearing things
can it be a wish and a prayer
is it the sound of angels wings
pixies a silent oath do swear

am I seeing things
could it be just a mirage
is it politically attached with strings
gnomes hidden by camouflage

am I feeling things
emotions tied to the heart
wistfully longing for magic rings
gremlins believe in modern art

am I dreaming things
may it be the kissing disease
gifts of beauty from benevolent kings
fairies that can float on a breeze

what determined who I am
I probably need a 12 step program

Philosophical

.

poetry is

“the most philosophical

of all writing”

whose object is

“truth…carried alive

into the heart by passion”.

.

~ William Wordsworth    (1770-1850)

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

urge

restless desire

an instinctive motive

natural disposition towards scratching

itch

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

follow the hearts lead

believe love

the best emotion

.

Poem:

.

for every philosophy that is true
there is a philosophy that is blue

if it doesn’t fit, create a new word
greek or latin base preferred

when is a debate not an argument
is being stupid a thought impairment

each philosophy ends in the same black hole
we are all unique as is every lump of coal

treat every day as a commencement
all souls have received the same life sentence

find a philosophy that you may call your own
one that the world would be glad to clone

seeking the will of a Higher Power
may lead you to the top of the ivory tower

be kind, be forgiving, practice unconditional love
this philosophy will bring blessings from above

be the best happy dance choreographer
and always be the good hearted philosopher
