Poetry- Day 6- Dream

Ocean large
Woman stands
At the edge, she looks
Right at you
Will she walk into the water
Will she stay,
Her home behind her
The water in front
Vast expanse
Yet she looks
Looks at you
Will she step into the water
Walk into the sea
Disappear into the stillness
Walk on the seabed
Talk to the hermit crab
Hermit by the sea
Which way will she step?

Poetry writing- day 5 -''Hidden''

#5 Hidden

Today's poem is paired with a dare. And the dare is this - hide a poem somewhere in the world. I could be one of yours or a favorite written by someone else.

Write about the actual or imagined experience of hiding a poem
or alternatively about anything hidden.


Soul caught in words
Capture those cobwebs write
In hidden treasure found by who?
Heart marks.

Cinquain is the form I played with

Cinquain is a short, usually unrhymed poem consisting of twenty-two syllables distributed as 2, 4, 6, 8, 2, in five lines. 

 It was developed by the Imagist poet, Adelaide Crapsey. (For further information, please scroll down for an article on Cinquain from the SP Quill Quarterly Magazine written by Deborah P Kolodji.)

Another form, sometimes used by school teachers to teach grammar, is as follows:

Line 1: Noun
Line 2: Description of Noun
Line 3: Action
Line 4: Feeling or Effect
Line 5: Synonym of the initial noun.
kind beyond words
they protect and forgive
and make feelings of blissfulness

Poem- day 4- ''I remember''

I remember that trip to Peru
Peru opening its gifts
Gifts of city , sand and sea,
Sea emerging for the sensing,
Sensing the sea over that wall
Wall from the ancients
Ancients meet modern
Modern Peru with Incas in deep
Deep in the waters from the past.
Past spilling over
over the wall
Wall dissolved times met
met with the beating of that drum.
