A Beautiful Sunset

(I)

horizon’s betting

all eyes not to skip the sight

or endless regret


(II)

with luck we will meet

once in a life time sunset —

leave prints in our mind


What Do You See #79

#NaPoWriMo2021 – Day 27

Fireflies


petite delight angels

your light is magnificent

like bedtime story wrapped in lullaby

but inside the glass cage

of countless days imprisoned

freedom then perished, broken over time

wings start to fall, consumed

and pain is beyond mended

no longer a bewitching dancing lights

the soul at last conclude

that time has been suspended

old lullaby will soon exit the night


Kerf poem consists of 12 lines made up of 4 tercets, with 6/7/10 syllabic counts for each tercet, following a rhyme scene of abc abc dec dec.

On the Loose

A man came back from the gym

Find a big surprise waiting for him

Where is my house, he rants

At last, off the market thence?

Nay, missus said – wind took it for a spin


Evening news, the anchor announces,

“We’d like to bring you the news

A house just left and gone

Call if it lands on your lawn

Warning, house is dangerous — y’know, loose screws”


This is my very first time making Limerick poems. Here’s a few information about Limericks from Literary Devices:

A limerick is a poem that consists of five lines in a single stanza with a rhyme scheme of AABBA. Most limericks are intended to be humorous, and many are considered bawdy, suggestive, or downright indecent. The subject of limericks is generally trivial or silly in nature. Most limericks are considered “amateur” poetry due to their short length and relatively simplistic structure. However, this does not take away from reader enjoyment of this literary device. With traditional limericks, the first, second, and fifth lines feature the same verbal rhythm, rhyme, and have seven to ten syllables. The third and fourth lines must rhyme (differently from the rhyme of lines one, two, and five), feature the same rhythm, and have five to seven syllables.

There are some very funny limericks out there which can be easily found by using google.

Thank you to Sadje for picking the best image so far for WDYS Challenge #70. When I saw the image above, right away I knew a limerick(s) is calling me. So there, I tried it.

Pride

Lone soul in bare night

A beacon, beckoning love

Pride, in world so lost


Loneliness,

has many faces.

When finally unveiled,

invokes fragility amidst pride,

blocking one from admitting.

My reaction in the form of haiku and gogyahka to an invoking image and challenge from Sadje’s What Do You See #69.

A Morning Monologue

Ah, you caught me,

caught me stealing a glance

What can I say,

your sight just sucks me

like a magnet

So you got me

Now,

what can I do for you

I have to offer something

‘ cause it’s rude not to

I’ve interrupted you,

your alone time

You can punish me

Please, punish me

I’ll take anything

Anything other than

silence

Thanks to Sadje What Do You See # 68 – February 8, 2021.
