This is for Sensational Haiku Wednesdays @ http://youknowthatblog.com
her hazel eyes
shining soft and bright
hid the deception.
For Poetry Potluck held by Amanda, Kavita and Jingle @ http://jinglepoetry.blogspot.com
this week the theme is: Languages, Signs, and Symbols!
gypsy lady (A Rispetto- first try)
she sat in a trance so serene
her hazel eyes reading me
the gypsy lady made a sign
towards the next chair for me
her language was not known to me
she drew a symbol just for me
on the table with a small chalk red
her fingers painted words unsaid.
Thanks a lot Raj @ http://thepoetrywagon.blogspot.com for teaching me the splendid form Rispetto. In her words:
Form Rispetto ~ A Rispetto an Italian form which is a complete poem of two rhyming quatrains abab ccdd. Syllable count is 8 per line
for HAIKU HEIGHTS
this week its Insomnia
and good, old Thursday Rally for poets held at Jingle’s @ http://thursdaypoetsrallypoetry.wordpress.com/
Jingle’s angel and our precious Thursday Rally for Poets is one year old now. Hooray to the child and her mother! May they both be blessed with pure goodness in endless amount!
This week jingle asked for two poems, first one is for a specific theme: POEMS and ME
my entry for it is a triolet:
Poems and me:
an outlet of emotions
whirling inside my heart
in oh so many visions
myriad hues of passions
its poetry that unchains
that fluttering bird of art
it softly removes its chain
lets it fly out to your heart.
ABAA ABAB (is the rhythming rule of triolet), line no 1,3,4,5,7 rhyme and line no 2,6,8 rhyme. In case of any type of confusion please Google- I am a rookie in form writing.
The post for accepting my favourite award Perfect Poet Award for week 36 is:
A tanka (my first attempt). This again I learned from Gayle (http://bodhirose.wordpress.com)
I stopped by woods
feeling the absolute peace
every movement talked
told me hundreds of stories
history was unraveled.
How to write one? Some people write English tanka in five lines with 5-7-5-7-7 syllable to approximate the Japanese model. I too am using that style.
The nomination! The toughest part, on this special week, when Thursday Rally for Poets have completed one year I will give this flower to the most deserving person, Jingle herself. Thanking her for bringing us all together and giving us so many priceless friends.
