You Are NOT Human

17 Jul

The poem below is a series of 13 haiku poems that tell one story. A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that consists of three lines containing 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables respectively.

I call this series of haiku tied together a Haiku Chain Poem. Also, as is my signature in all of my poems, the last line contains the title of the poem.

This poem was inspired by the block-buster film, Avatar and my personal spiritual beliefs.

I hope that you like this poem.

You Are NOT Human!

You are of the same
Essence as the Creator
of Heaven and Earth

Your body is a
house for your immortal soul.
You are not human.

Being human is not an
acceptable excuse to
set small, boring goals.

An avatar is
the personification
of a deity.

Is it not written
that “Ye are gods”? Is
it not David’s psalm?

Mary-Mary has
a great, inspiring song.
“It’s the god in me”.

Michigan, Eerie,
and Ontario are lakes.
Superior, too.

Nile, Mississippi,
Tigris, and Euphrates are
all big, great rivers.

Caribbean, Red,
and Mediterranean
are all mighty seas.

Atlantic, Arctic,
Pacific and Indian
are all deep oceans.

GOD is a river.
GOD is a great lake a big
sea and an ocean.

Your body is a
cup. GOD’s spirit is water.
YOU have that spirit.

You’re an avatar
made in the image of GOD.
You are not human.

The New Age Witches

26 Jun

This poem is a series of 12 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form.

This poem introduces the reader to a modern pagan religion called Wicca.


“The New Age Witches”

No brooms or black cats.
No cauldrons of boiling brew.
No black, pointed hat.

This is a new day.
Those stereotypes are so
passe. Ignore them.

We believe in one
GOD. We call her Great Goddess.
She is three in one.

The Maiden Goddess,
the Mother Goddess, and the
withered Crone Goddess.

These three represent
purity, fertility.
Wisdom is the third.

“Once a witch, always a witch.”
We were here before.

White and black magic.
We tap into the forces
of mother nature.

We advocate good
deeds and frown upon hurting
people. That’s not cool.

Our code of ethics:
“an it harm none, do what ye
will.” The Wiccan Rede.

Air. Earth. Fire. Water.
Spirit. The five elements.
Phases of matter.

Our magic circles
are where we do our work. Most
under a full moon.

Roots in Celtic and
Germanic paganism.
The new age witches.
