This is a repost. I had written this last year but I happened to read it and I want to share it once again for it is close to my heart.💕💕 My Father, My best friend! My unswerving teacher, You taught me with love, All that I know. You taught me life, Taught me to… Continue reading An Ode to my Father
“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” ― William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice I have written a Gogyohka on the quote. Love is a beacon of hope, A dazzling trail on stormy seas, A solace to beleaguered souls lost, Love is avarice tainted now,… Continue reading Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 179, #ThemePrompt
I have written an Etheree on this beautiful prompt by Jude, from Tales Told Different. She sang to the tune of falling raindrops, Trying to fight darkness with her light, Her silent thunder rained down love, Her dazzling eyes dispersed gloom, Unrestrained and fiery, Rejunevating, Infusing life , Into all, Blooming, Life.

Deep in my dreamy slumber I heard, A symphonic melody play, It flowed around so untamed, Traipsing on vernal branch, Waltzing along buds, A fragrant burst, Melody, Real, Pure.

As the cannons roared, Balls of fire, Streaking the dark skies, Tainting my soil red. I wonder, Where the love went? I yearn for those days, When vernal bloom, Thawed the icy facades. When warmth seeped, Infusing life into cloistered cages. A playful gambol, A fragrant melody, It reverberated the land. And now! An eerie… Continue reading Where
