SADDLE UP SALOON; COLLEEN’S DOUBLE ENNEAD CHALLENGE NO. 4

I have chosen the Fates as my theme and used the rhyme scheme Spanish Quintain (Quintilla) of A-A-B-B-A Fates On life’s chequered board the dice cast records, To give what is preordained in game of life, Fates let loose endless strife, Turmoil overlords. Not known what stars foretell bid dreams a farewell, You want to… Continue reading SADDLE UP SALOON; COLLEEN’S DOUBLE ENNEAD CHALLENGE NO. 4

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 57: (WHIM) in the B rhyme line

Life's deep quench so insatiable, A trail of unrequited whims, But dreams dear take a pseudonym, Time's stealthy elf not tameable, All brave plans unattainable, A tiny seed of hope dormant, Hidden safe from Fate's play mordant, Awaits to burst in vernal bloom, Saying nay to soothsayer's doom, Spouting fragrant hues in torrent.

#NaPoWriMo 2021#The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 17,2021

"Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is mash.” Dreams broken, And mashed into myriad pieces, She was blighted, Her lustre waned, Happiness eclipsed. But a tiny spark somewhere, It still lingered in a closed niche, That the fiery winds could not douse. Her zest inflamed the tiny spark. It roared and raged consuming… Continue reading #NaPoWriMo 2021#The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 17,2021

NaPoWriMo Day 3

I have written a poem on Dreams Wisps of dream floating in the cerulean sky, Encircled by a fiery halo of hope, Harmonized by a tranquil zeal, She caught those silvery wisps one by one. Always dreaming to hope in a dark night, Seeing the shiny unicorn coming, Riding hard on her shortcomings, Giving a… Continue reading NaPoWriMo Day 3

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 216 #SYNONYMSONLY

My synonyms for Eager and Hope are ardent and wish. I have attempted an Abhanga. Lonely soul in a crowd a melancholic laugh caged in social carafe heart lost its rhythm. Not forgetting to live but nursing a dear wish spouting an ardent swish to fulfil dreams. Via: Tanka Tuesday

Voices

Voices, Inside, Echoing, Riding the crests, Hiding in the troughs, A cacophony of decibels, Sweet and soft notes, And also sharp ones, Painful and consoling, They just ring on. Reminding me of painful memories, Shaded and pale with time, Or just harkening back to days of joy, Singing the mirthful tunes. A syllabic rhapsody, That… Continue reading Voices

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 209, #POET’SCHOICE

A Recall( a Shadorma) A recall, A reverie true, Fire now doused, A lone spark, It revived the jaded soul, Cloistered wishes freed. Via: https://lindaghill.com/2021/01/20/one-liner-wednesday-jusjojan-the-20th-2021-defeat/

#JusJoJan prompt the 18th – “Wish”

Wishes, Gossamer winged, Irridiscent in the warm sunlight, Floating aerily in the cerulean skies, Beckoning me to dreamy lands, Faraway and faraway, An idyllic repose, And my heart soared! But stormy gales, Blew far and wide, Scattering the frail wishes all around, Lost in the maelstrom, Not to be found! And some lucky ones, They… Continue reading #JusJoJan prompt the 18th – “Wish”

#JusJoJan 9 & #SoCS – Limitless

Sky is the limit! Is our energy and courage to reach there limitless? We fall to rise and fall again. Bruised,battered and scarred,we still look up at the cerulean skies in deep longing. Life goes by and years roll by in swift tandem with time. But the skies still beckon us. The cherished dreams stay… Continue reading #JusJoJan 9 & #SoCS – Limitless

#JusJoJan prompt the 1st – “Fingertips”

When everything you have ever dreamed of, Is no longer at your fingertips, And seems miles away, Do not let the niggling seeds of self doubt sprout, Let not the distance daunt you, It gives you time to grow, What is the point of lofty dreams, If you could reach them easily!
