This week’s challenge is to write a specific form with a twist: Write an acrostic poem with a syllable count of 8, 9, or 10 syllables per line (all the same, or a mixture of syllable counts, is fine). Acrostic poems are poems in which a word or several words are spelled out vertically. This is usually the first letter of each line.
The word I chose is “Magical” and I’ve tried to write two poems with the same word.
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.
Today’s poetry is inspired from Colleen’s poetry challenge, which gives the freedom to choose our own syllabic form but concentrate on a chakra color to feature in our poem. Please visit Word Craft Poetry to understand chakras. I chose tanka and violet color.
vernal violet visual delight that jolts royal touch that holds just one glance satiates me even dew lingers to love
violet bells dance tunes of nature inspire winds wane to watch them beguile me in my backyard scenario to cherish
Ah! The healing touch, profound awareness moments smear my soul with peace to feel mystical embrace and the shift of perspective
