Sprout Wings

.

“Following dark winter’s strife,

a warm air rises,

teemed with life.

Birth, rebirth,

as the waiting die.

Old love, new love

sprouts wings to fly.”


― Phar West Nagle

fly

on wings

sail the sky

to chase the wind

soar

Tanka: 5,7,5 . 7,7 syllables per line

.

another season

the Creator does not fail

a time to adjust

.

all animals must adapt

man is not an exception

Poem:

.

paid the bills, no money left over
only dreams of being in the clover
contemplating what to do when I win the lotto
you just wait has been my motto

dreams with no action never work
believing in good luck is just a quirk
to put that cherry on the banana split
maybe tomorrow I’ll get around to it

what’s not to enjoy about living
glad to multiply the joy by giving
having a family by birth or by choice
just too many reasons to rejoice

do we really need a reason for being
what if we all were just dreaming
forget the questions, let your soul soar
know that happiness is rewarded by more

Over and Done

.

"Dont

over finish

your work.

There is value

to done.”

.

~   Paul Gauguin

.

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

.

work

to act

make it run

while you have fun

play

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.

weather is perfect
a time to go out and play
beautiful day

ignoring world chaos
democracy is alive

.

Poem:

.

sunshine and rainbows, another beautiful day
the lucky have nothing to do but play
everyone can enjoy nature at it’s best
given life, every soul has been blessed

precipitation and wind, the weather is miserable
only the ducks may deem it considerable
the weather is good as a conversation piece
guess right or wrong the odds will never increase

the smart are patient knowing that water is life
the tolerant are able to avoid the strife
the wise do not discuss politics or religion
being careful not to expose the family addiction

ignore the weather it is about to change
most opinions are useless and usually strange
today, love, forgive, be patient, tolerant and kind
let only peace and happiness cross your mind
