Your Eyes

IMG_0136

Your blue eyes pierce me,
Seeing into my soul —
What is the ultimate goal
Except to drown in your sea?

For decades I could keep
Searching, and never find
All treasures of your mind,
Nor what makes your eyes so deep.


Shared with DVerse OLN. The poem was not exactly following but still inspired by this prompt.

Waterfall

This is a Lai poem for DVerse. I have written several of these in the past few weeks but haven’t wanted to post any of them. 


Teardrop waterfalls

Blue the world,  and call

To deep —

Wishing loss to stall,

Though one can’t have all

To keep —

There is much to haul,

Need — to scale a wall

Too steep.

Disconnect

For the Pix To Words prompt.


Big city // bustling marina

Five or six people sit on a bench,

Waiting, phones in faces, and

Do not see the sunlight glinting

On the surface of the sea.

Do not see the faces of companions,

Only their own reflection

In the smartphone screen.

Garden

It’s NaPoWriMo day 23! Here is a garland cinquain. Click the link to know more.


Garden
Filled with verdant
Plants, greening surroundings,
Many butterflies brightening
The day.

The day,
Sunlight-flooded
Though shade-trees congregate,
Welcomes people into nature’s
Beauty.

Beauty
On ev’ry side,
Delighting eye and heart —
White clouds peek through the leafy trees
A dream.

A dream,
Eden evoked
By a babbling stream,
Daffodils by the water’s edge,
Joyous —

Joyous
Yellow-petaled
Loveliness beckoning,
Understand water’s babbling:
Rebirth.

Garden,
Sunlight-flooded,
Delighting eye and heart —
Daffodils by the water’s edge:
Rebirth
