This week, the challenge is “to share the view outside your window by writing a syllabic poem.” Here is the view from my window though the picture doesn’t show the howling wind and the continuous rain… spring still seems far away!
Pine tree twigs swing harder wrathful wind howls, inert spring stumbles nonplussed, she looks at the silvery sky that shields sun. My picture window remains closed to keep the wayward winter chill and the unpleasant sounds of the wild wind out.
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.
Thanks to Colleen for the inspiration to craft syllabic poetry. I’ve written two butterfly cinquains. The theme of the month (chosen by Sangeetha) is: The Nature of Lightning. The Butterfly Cinquain is an unrhymed, nine-line syllabic poem with 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllables per line. It uses the syllable count of the Crapsey Cinquain and then reverses it. The name comes from the butterfly shape it creates when centered on the page.
