I am back after a long, fun-filled vacation, emotional reunions with friends and family after a gap of three years. Though jet-lagged, I am getting inspired by this beautiful challenge. Thanks to David for choosing a thought-provoking image for Ekphrastic poetry challenge this month.
The day we all gathered harmony of colors depicted the dreams that connect us with love
that day we were summoned by our mentor to show the luster of togetherness, a glow
a show of diligence, of emotions that bind. our hair color could never change the goals
he said: let’s meditate! Donna stood tall, erect Bob stood on his toes to show he’s alert
just few paid attention to the artist’s vision curious Cane watched from the edge judging!
Thanks to Colleen for the inspiration to craft syllabic poetry. I’ve written a Crown cinquain, a sequence of five cinquain stanzas functioning to construct one larger poem. This poem has five stanzas, each with syllable count of 2/4/6/8/2.
A green girl, bubbling with adolescent quest for green mountains and brooks that enticed her, walked away to explore forests of pines and deodars and Mother Nature’s blessings awaited in the form of a translucent treehouse. …
Thanks to Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which has inspired me to create a syllabic poem based on color. I chose green, a symbol of balance, nature, spring, and rebirth. It’s also the symbol of prosperity, freshness, and progress. My focus was: “think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.”
I chose Etheree, which consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Ethereecan also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
Just one cloud clamors to hold the rays of dawn, waking up sky from its dreams. More clouds gather to celebrate the brilliance of an artist who works diligently to create new designs each moment. Demon-eyed, with an open mouth, he came from an unknown land, too far to traverse. He seems to express unreasonable desires, swallowing the morning light, whispering colorful tunes to the sun.
Today’s prose-poetry is inspired from Reena’s Xploration Challenge, which asks us to let the whole or phrases from the following line be our muse this week. “It came from somewhere too far to walk, from as far away as the most unreasonable desire, the most devastating hope.” by Sharmishtha Mohanty in Thirty two nights and dreams.
