Daily Haiku

Sorry. I took a break for a bit. We had a baby shower and things got busy. Life happens. Right? Anyways, I bring you today’s haiku:

Poem

on__the_edge_of_meloncholy

magic time found a way through

my portals of space

it is shiny inside my pleasant caves

nothing to worry about in here

all is quiet and calm now

let it go no matter what they say

or how they may think

because it’s all in your head

 

red sunset casting silhouettes

upon the trees

i miss the tree that once grew with me

we were friends and companions

but that time is gone

so i must be moving on

feel that yearning to fix the gutters

of my mind

wishing to be driving

on the mother road

Steal This Poem and Improve Your Life…by Chris Noe

Steal This Poem and Improve Your Life

A false livelihood is among us here

They put her in a corner over there

Rape is a real sickness fueled by pressure

 

Communication is evaporating

We all want to be heard under street lights

That shine our thoughts and awaken reality

 

Life’s highways lead to unbelievable places

 

The warmth and comfort of these words

“It’s gonna be okay” is all you need to hear

Yet horror surrounds the peace in our hearts

 

There’s no way to escape the jaws of pain

When your best friend discounts your existence

From their world permanently

 

Or when the girl you once loved suddenly stomps on your soul

 

Who steals your identity?

 

Grandmother dies without saying goodbye

Your baby leaves this earth before you even get to say hi

 

Your loneliness leads you to painkillers and whiskey

To mask the agonies of anxiety and despair

 

Your therapist can no longer help you

And tells you to just move on

 

The bullying becomes too much to handle

Humiliation

 

Social media captures and suffocates you

Until there is no you

Then madness feels like the answer

 

Remember to hear the music of poets

To listen to the words that speak to you

 

Music saves

 

They are sounds the soul needs to hear

 

To look in the mirror and see you as someone

Who matters in this world

 

Pick up the phone and call

Reach out to family and talk

 

Sleep won’t fix it

Drugs won’t fix it

Solitude won’t fix it

 

Instead

 

Walk along the beach

Listen to the waves

Feel the warm sand run through your toes

Stroll down the sidewalk

On a sunny day and soak up the fresh air

Smile at strangers

Do what makes you happy

Strum your guitar strings

Free your mind from cerebral slavery

 

Do not hesitate to fulfill your dreams

One day at a time

Find laughter at a zoo

Watching children feed the goats

 

Visit a support group and listen to their stories

Learn to let go of the past

Forgive yourself

Love that person in the mirror

Wave at your reflection in the pond

You are never alone

 

The world is filled with kindness

Remove those regrets

Fill your emotions with laughter

And compassion

Reach out and never let go once you’ve

Grabbed a hold of true love

And it will carry you far

The rest of the way

On your life’s journey

Sunshine Joy

If I had to choose 3 poets who have inspired me to become a writer, I would choose e.e. cummings, Rumi and T. S. Elliot.

Below is an example of some of e.e. cummings finest work. It is an uplifting poem. He preferred to ignore traditional rules of grammar and punctuation. He also used a lot of lowercase letters. Nonetheless, I wrote my first poem in high school because of him. I enjoy free verse, no rhymes and curious stanzas……all of which make me happy!


i thank You God for most this amazing. . .

by e.e. cummings

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

next time….I will post a wonderful selection from the great Persian Poet….Rumi
