This month, since DVerse is going to be “closed,” Jilly’s is hosting a challenge about collaborative poetry. I already completed another poet’s poem here, and this is my first half. Inspired by Jeren, my first half is also in Tanaga form, with 7 syllables per line and a rhyme scheme of abba cddc.
The ocean’s waves are choppy,
Yet how I yearn to sail there,
To feel the sun and fresh air,
Cold, yet new, unknown and free.
Will I find uncharted land?
Following Polaris, bright
Star, I go beyond my sight,
After leaving home’s safe sand.
