    Poetry is lame. Why waste your time on such bunk, when life is so short?

    At first I was shocked
    Then suddenly I noticed
    Nice Haiku, Molnar!
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    I just decide that haiku are worth 170 twollars. Thanks Sue and Molnar for the first two haiku!

    Fishing for wisdom in the sea of doubt
    a nibble of understanding lost again
    Patience
    Patience

    Hunting for knowledge in a forest of darkness
    a shadow of thought missed again
    Long-suffering
    Long-suffering

    Harvesting for ideas in a field of desolation
    a grain of insight withered away
    Resignation
    Resignation

    April

    Cool
    It becomes wet
    Hot, it steams;
    Never takes the same route
    Into a heart frozen shut still, yet, but not forever.
    I bite my knuckles when the clouds drift overhead.
    They bring the unknown
    And they bring the inevitable.

    Take me out of this waiting.
    I want the sky blue
    And I want the grass dry
    And the pavement friendly to my bare soles.
    Give me bee hum
    And leaf rustle
    And stop this dance you savor
    As you change from
    One to the next.

    She seeks it here, she seeks it there,
    Knocka seeks it everywhere.
    Is it a number or is it a word?
    Finding an answer is just absurb.

    They seek it here, they seek it there
    Twelevers seek it everywhere.
    Is a picture or just a caption?
    Whatever it is gives satisfaction.

    He seeks it here, he seeks it there.
    Moscow seeks it everywhere.
    A haiku, a sonnet, an ode or short lines,
    Poetry, free verse or just some rhymes.

    Default Day 108 - National Poetry Month

    I dance slowly down
    the road
    One foot, and another, and a third
    the cadence of my footfalls
    a tiny earthquake

    Today I dance alone
    although here and there
    I see others dancing
    to their own symphony
    ignored by the crowd who stand
    silent and still

    As I dance slowly and alone
    I see a silver glint
    and as I dance
    the dance becomes me
    and I become the dance
    and the road and the earthquake

    When I stop the dance it hurts
    sharp pains
    as if the dance is ripped
    from my bones
    or am I ripped from the bones
    of the dance
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    Search. Research. Re-search.
    Stand beside. Stand under. Stand down. Understand.
    Mad. Razz. Wink. Very Happy. Surprised. Smile.
    Theory. Trust. Truth. Try.
    Work. Rest. Work.
    Thursday

    Leave alone. Leave, alone. Lone some leave. lonesome leaves.
    Look again. Look again. Look again.
    Whatever comes to you, comes to you.
    Sad. Confused...Roll Eyes.
    Cool. Sir prized again. Missed her green.
    Very happy. Brick wall yet everything is cool.

    the stakes are soaring
    in this game
    I find it boring
    all the same
    yet I canít leave the table

    the players cloaked
    in strange facades
    Iím left to wonder if theyíre gods
    whose horses left the stable

    this chop twice slice and dice
    three times four plus five advice
    raging fire turned to ice
    in this dreamers fable

    it surely was a magic time
    when his soul
    amended mine
    until I felt that I could fly
    that keeps me at the table

    chasing shadows that I feel
    looking for a shard thatís real
    longing for a piece of steel
    to forge when I am able

    what I know
    is what I see
    four times four plus five and three
    seven days a week for me
    until I cut the cable
