Short Ride, Long Life, The Princess arrives, Copyright 2013 Doug Stuber

Short Ride, Long Life

You: transformed high princess of France who finds Spain

more alluring; who, upon raised eyebrows and sledgehammer

“hints” follows up slowly but surely to see what that old man

is all about. Does he know enough your customs of woo?

Jeong? Thrust and parry?  Is it you who, being so refined, end

up adapting to his ways , or will the gap widen only to close

permanently, assigned to separate lonely corners.? There’s a

softness in you that sends out an attractive beam, but is this

an automatic trait, thus approachable as real, or have brain-

waves, distorted by multiple realities interfered with instincts,

restricting freedom yet allowing curiosity to radiate?  Did

you cross the muddy field to intersect his chosen path? Is

coincidence created or part of some large plan to finally bring

him down?  No this can’t be true because life doesn’t play a

human heart this way; certain faith, augmented by trust is

gained over cream sauce noodles, post-joke smoke, laughing

at those who do not understand.  You make it so easy for him

to be himself, while also, in the span of one meal, laying out

the intricacies of the desires that will determine the nature of

your commitment.

Paradelle for You

 

To love the Ggachi call is to farm Korean soil.

To love the Ggachi call is to farm Korean soil.

When you laugh your light warms this human soul.

When you laugh your light warms this human soul.

The Ggachi laugh is to call this human soul,

Your farm warms; you light to love Korean soil.

Be brave, enlist the help of someone you just met.

Be brave, enlist the help of someone you just met.

Let the moonlight enhance, allowing you to dance.

Let the moonlight enhance, allowing you to dance.

You just enlist moonlight allowing the help to dance.

Be of someone you enhance, let the brave…

Put your hand in the place it is not allowed.

Put your hand in the place it is not allowed.

To be one you never thought but wished to be.

To be one you never thought but wished to be.

You thought your hand wished, but in the place, “to be”

Is not allowed. Never put it to the one to be.

Moonlight, allowing the Ggachi to enlist your hand

To put this brave human soil in the light,

But the laugh you dance to one you enhance

Warms when you call Korean farm to place someone.

You just wished your “let” to be the thought.

It is not your human soul you never allowed help you.

Paradelle:

AA (exactly the same)

BB

C – mix of the exact words of A or B

D- mix of the exact remaining words of A or B

Another of the same (EE, FF, GH)

Another of the same (II, JJ, KL)

MNOPQR – using all the words of the repeating lines in six new lines.

It has to include ALL THE WORDS exactly, no more or less.

Some wild mathematical Frenchman came up with this poetic form.  One is enough I think
