Forwards or Backwards

Go snow

Either way you say it

The meaning is the same

We dont want you around here

Snow go

Cinquain

A friend of mine used to say”There’s a lot of truth in jesting” and in this case it’s true. The poem may sound humorous but it’s meaning is real 😊 Snow be Gone!

Extravagance

Garbage, Trash

Wanting and wasting are we

Living in a plastic worldly tent

Of high tech commodity

Wanting and wasting are we

Our waste destroying the sea

And littering our enviroment

Wanting and wasting are we

Living in a plastic worldly tent

Triolet

This poem is based on an “up-ended” meaning of this phrase: “waste not, want not”

This is actually a proverb which means:

if you use a commodity or resource carefully and without extravagance, you will never be in need.

This was one of my mom’s favorite sayings. She lived the the Great Depression. We would all do well to learn to do this nowadays.
