Connecting Genius and Madness

* Written for Elly's "At Least Three Proverbs and One Quote Contest" (Modified Haiku with rhyme)

Aristotle quote: “There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.”

American Proverbs
Edgar Allen Poe: “I remained too much inside my head; I ended up losing my mind.”
Robin Williams: “You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it”
Marilyn Monroe: “Imperfection is beauty; madness is genius.”


can genius be found
if you fail to look around
     head buried in ground

to stay in my mind
others may think I am blind
     label me maligned

welcome is madness
if you believe it’s genius
     and make others guess

shall I cling to it
this madness, every last bit
    to genius commit

imperfection reigns
for people who play mind games
    desiring acclaims  

I must not lose this
ties to poetic genius
     deep in mind’s abyss  


*Written October 4, 2014
The two words are “genius” and “madness”
First two verses are a play on Poe’s proverbs
Third verse is inspired by the Aristotle quote
Fourth verse is a play on Robin Williams’ proverb 
Fifth verse is inspired by the Marilyn Monroe proverb
Sixth and final verse is inspired by the Poe proverb

A Season lost

The season I lost A season which can't be found The past, never came Another season Approaching my vision now I cannot miss it This time, I will know The experience I'll gain from this new season If I miss this chance I will lose my fall feeling and the love I had The experience my experience will last if i hold my sight I blinked and it left the love I had left my heart the season has passed

Wish you were here

Canopy of trees
trying to cross sky limit....
green revolution

a distant river
lying naked lazily....
an enticing call

the old learned stones
whispering me history ....
wish you were here now

Enlightenment

So many people
are out smelling the flowers...
Hope some planting them.

Pluck not the flower
Let it be the delight of 
other travelers

Flowers in morning 
tell us to look up always 
and not to look down

By plucking petals
impossible to gather....
fairness and fragrance

Fairness and fragrance
always will stay in the hand
that gives to someone

I asked a flower,
“What is the meaning of life?”
opened empty hands.

with the entire world watching

knowing they will not live
yet they bravely give

the sacrifice's
ordinary men will make
will save their nation

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Take two sides in good or bad

Dyaus' Rainbow Palette

Hues and crests from God

   Both a promise, and blessing-

       Only seen in spring.


Striking features true

  In minds of religious view-

        Punish the wicked.


Noah, only knew

   Covenant, words from his lips-

      Spoke to all beings.


All animals joined

   With some of Noah's own kin-

      Is that not a sin?

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.
Nevermore.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.
Forever.

Crisis in Identity

Misguide in knowledge
Misled in society
Grain pretend as wheat

Poor generation
Camouflaged by the motion
Lost in true nation

Your skin ain't no lie
Intelligence miss your mind
Turn back, take a side 

Ain't no harm you plead
To the country where you breathe
Dedicate indeed

GOD'S BLESSING RAIN FALL

                                              High spirited song
                                      forces to jump up and bounce

Demanding on happiness
See what you have got

We forgot the thanks
We remember the ache
Selfishness of human

Untouched, but last forever.

Haiku

 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 HAIKU; MEMORIES AND OBSERVATIONS and EXERCISES


 Archery
 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.

 First

 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Alone

 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.


 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.



 Memory

 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.



 Memory 

 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.



 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.


 Exercise I


 Diagonally
 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.


 Exercise II

 Vociferously,
 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.


 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 Incompatibility.
 He had to learn it.


 All his writing was
 autobiographical.
 He was egocentric.


 SEASONS

 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.


 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 Synch

 Summer. I feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

Longing for your love,
Probably I might be blessed,
If not one sided !

Sitting in a group,
Yet loneliness grips my mind,
Probably elsewhere !


You hear my heartbeats,
Reciprocate hugging heats,
Probably dreaming !

You dont know me

I seemed to be misunderstood by most
The inside is me, outside what you see
Are the remnants of a tattered host
In me you will find a soul of honesty 

But also confusion and frustration
And you may mistake me as troublesome
But I live life as a celebration
Appreciate life to the optimum

Sometimes I can be recklessly funny
Sometimes I am seriously reckless
Sometimes I am bright and sunny
Sometimes theres too much stress

Please don’t judge or be confused by me
I am what I am, I am what you see.

Ode to Misha

It`s been more than eight summers ago or so that I last saw you. But dear, not a day has passed that I forgot you or our memories. Your dark raven eyes, and silky ebony fur, how I miss them so! I love you, Misha, Your presence I still long for, every single day.

Approach

Sledge hammers breaking
Through the invisible walls
Holding me hostage

Chip away the pain
Moving toward releasing
The bricks and mortar

Where is my power?
My strength is dissipating
My resolve so weak

Needing to move on
Two heavy feet are throbbing
My balance is off

Summoning courage
I swing wildly back and forth
Expecting a change

What a Year

I am back here now
Wondering how I survived
Trying to relax

Twists and turns endng
It is time for a new bed
A place for resting

The backward glance
Reminds me that time passes
Always a new start

Just when you breathe out
Something else needs attention
That is life, I guess

Every year passes
New insights and blinders come
Amid confusion

Step out on the road
Find your balance once again
Breathe in and breath out

Group of 26 various haikus

Night time yet again /starlight swallowed by black-hoes /Never to reach earth 

Monster under bed /Darkness engulfing my heart /Flashlight in closet 

Broken down body /Pieces still falling apart /Trying to survive 

Needed violence /Craving others' destruction /A bloody green-world 

Another world waits /To be drastically changed  /For better or for worst 

Take away my soul /A Genni in a bottle /Waiting for my hell 

Follow me right now /into the heart of her dream /To understand pain

What is my purpose /If no one recognizes /Who I truly am 

Where do I go from /A path lost in time and space /Path through destruction 

Do you give a damn /That people fall through the cracks /Life and sanity 

Where is your passion? /To afraid to make a change /Life requires life 

Wish upon a star /It falls from the black heavens /Death for a lost soul

Power to control /How the world spins around us /Orbiting people

Future behind us /Broken possibilities /Wondering what if

what inspires dreams / To quickly flee from our minds / Do they shape the soul? 

Do you know yourself? / Understand your heart and soul / Or did you give up?

My wondering thoughts/ foot steps past our minds limits/ into a new world 

Waiting for time's change / scared of what I will find there /What will be taken? 

Looking for details/ What secrets will they reveal?/ Our humanity 

He gave memories/ Remembering as her own/ Truth lost inside time 

Questions Propagate / What's inside Pandora's box / All of his secrets

Apple falls from tree / Down the rabbit hole it rolls / Mad Hater picks up 

Depression soaks in / Into my thoughts and body / Draining who I am

Stress stretches my soul / Rubber band about to break / Crashing into life 

Life flipped upside down/ World falling into pieces/ Some forever lost

How many lost dreams/ Are never fulfilled in life/ That could of been real?

reincarnated Buddha sees ten, mmm, eleven mystic Haikus in the lotus

youth
play while growing up
play when living toward your dreams
play when you are old

drowning
the trick of swimming
is to know when to stroke it
and when to float it

snuff
when terminating 
some life, plant or animal,
rejoice its being

lessen
serenity prayer
reminds there's little control
you're human, ok?

past 
ancestors taught you
everything they knew 'til then
they could do no more

present
did you hear of the
golden rule when you were young?
remember it now

future
children need guidance
look to past and present to
help guide them forward

policy
rules are made to be
followed from experience,
but always questioned

visions
both dark and light views
show beauty and/or wisdom
to enrich our lives

song
it's better to sing
on key and pitch, but any voice
is better than none

...lastly
a five seven five
rule of writing light verse makes
things interesting

Foul Sisters

Bitterness holds me.
I do not like her embrace
because it is cold.

Her touch makes me rot
not outwardly, but inside
corrupting my soul.

Her wretched voice crows:
"Everyone else is crooked."
No one else speaks up.

I do not love her,
but when she is here with me
we see eye to eye.

She then reminds me:
"Condemnation will come soon."
I hate her also.

Together they drone
robbing me of any will
to get up and leave.

The sisters love me.
I withhold my affection,
yet they cling to me.

They each take a turn,
kissing me with rancid breath
and bugs in their hair.

I want far better.
I need better company,
yet I sit with them.

Opening Mouths

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Unlocking the pain
Making waves in the ocean
The under tow pulls

A downward thrust calls
Swim hard up to the blue sky
Breathe in and breathe out

Open mouths suck air
To calm the tired spirits
Exhaling their pain outward

Deeply remember
Listen to the suffering
Take it not on board

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

A Haiku Sextet

Losing her, a dream,
winter ravaged my
soul.
The snowman melts.

Solitary bird,
why sing you only of
spring
outside my window?

I stole a flower
from nature's bed,
bottled it.
Now it is dying.

The crunch of brown
leaves
tells me nothing
whatsoever
about decay, death.

It is November--
but the air forgets
that as
it dances spring.

Winter is most real,
fall most sad,
summer holy,
but spring is a
dream.

Disease

It's common and contagious
Leaves some in denial

Some call it Jealousitus
Try not to catch it

Leo

Sleeping next to me
The sounds of noisy slumber
Warm and steadying

Life surprises me
Love, I did not see coming
Filling me with hope

Pushing out the fear
Fragile evaporations
Welcomed in my heart

Releasing blossoms
From my knotted aging limbs
Looking forward now

A new season calls
Pleasures come without the guilt
New sproutings of faith

My secret to keep
Private lessons for learning
Before it's too late

My arm curls around
Breathing sounds are comforting
I hope I can sleep

Faces

- Recognition
Up in the night sky,
A face, with two gleaming eyes…
Cold like a glacier.

- Laughing
It’s our inside joke,
Tiny bubbles in the pool…
Fresh rain on the ground.

- Languid
Faces in moon light,
Satellites cross the night sky…
It’s warm, go swimming.

- Again
Like a falling star,
Gleaming tear-drops on my face…
Dew in the morning.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Our love once smelled new
Blossomed with life, grew in time 
Like flowers at noon

I miss you Chula,
You left me without a word
Hurricanes come fast

I once overheard
“If you bow at all, bow low.”
Our leaf flew from branch

Death would be softer
Without you I am not whole
Snow covers my heart

At Wick's End

Candles in rock pool...
Water like the deepest sea...
A stirring began.

Two hearts turn to flesh.
Angelic auras ignite
Infatuation.

Silent, holding hands...
Yet full of words afterwards
Sent in love letters

With upside down stamps,
Scented poetry pages
Drip unfailing love.

Charismatic speech,
Uncommon romantic deeds 
And fantasies bloom.

Unconditional
Promises prematurely
Penned with shallow love

Melt souls like soft wax.
Formless objects of desire
At wick end's dead flames

Reveal the candles'
Mistaken identities-
"I thought I knew you's".

Reality lights
On the still, stagnant pool with
Ripples of "you said's".

Glowing nimbuses
Form the rolling thunderheads
And vapors of rain.

Soft shoulders turn cold.
Tongues set on fire with Hell's rage
Turn indifferent.

Two hearts become stone,
And the first visitation
Evokes hurt and hate.

Endangered peace talks
Precede a trail of tears to
Extinct promises

In boxed up letters
Rubber banded together
In a hidden place.

And ask for nothing.

Red, White, and Blue

Red petals attract
Every eye and head turned to
Gardens of Surprise

Columns supporting
White ceilings looming so high
Cracking over time

Blue vapors seeping
Low notes soaring to the depths
Sung by compromised ladies

Red pilgrimage made
Engraved names lovingly touched
Thoughts sliding backwards

Humid white clouds cry
Tearful chants for the dying
Over white-washed walls

Blue flames flickering
Gasping for the air to breathe
Time will not heal wounds

Red bleeding fountains
Spurting out toward the sky
Evaporating

Searching for release

Twenty Haiku

Now she sits down, head
hung low as my soul,
picking at the grass

Her head’s on the desk
counting out the syllables
just like me

When the moment calls
ah, what use are syllables
let’s break the cycle

Five seven five five
five seven five seven five
five seven five five

Tick tock, going round
and round and round and round and
round and round and round

As eons crawl by
the moments repeat themselves
only for those who listen

Facsimile smiles
she told me this yesterday
and I know the secret

“Cut it out guys, it’s
serious as a heart attack”
that was good timing

A hole on the knee
a hole in her jeans
a hole in my soul, oh yeah

Counting out the words
what utter futility
what else in our lives?

Eight bars of light sit
on the ceiling, letting us
see what we are doing

Impeach Bush and Cheney
afterdowningstreet.org
says the orange bracelet

until they all come home, I
will wear this yellow bracelet
to show my solidarity

Hair stands on my hand,
blown by the breeze
of the air-conditioner

A silver cross is hung
from the fire alarm
blown as well on the breeze

Under the sun, we
play out our peaceful lives
never stopping to think

Dammit, go away
sit down, because you
are the freak

“Nice guys finish last”
stop talking to my lady
well, not really my lady

This feeling,
I must deal with it
Alone

Dangerous, dangerous lady!
Don’t you know you’re heading down
the road to heartbreak?

their mistakes.)

SHADOW OF THE HUMMINGBIRD

As I sit, staring at the Hotel wall
the shadow of a bird, floating, flying
'gainst the shadow of a Honeysuckle Bush
furiously flapping,  shadow Wings
feasting 'pon life's blood - nectar
shadow World in which we dwell
Reflection or reality
Ofttimes I wish mere reflection it were
for then life would matter little
troubles - a mere shadow would then become
Shadow of delightful Hummingbird
'gainst shadow of Hotel wall
and Honeysuckle Bush
Illusion
