~::~ [A-Z Challenge] ~ Xylophone

Day 24, X = Xylophone

Again, there are no poetic forms/types from X and so I have decided to write a lesser known form called Naisaiku and Ive chosen the word “Xylophone”

A NaiSaiKu is usually two Haiku length stanzas with a capitalised title sandwiched between them. The second stanza is usually a reverse of the first. Each stanza is usually seventeen syllables or less. Sometimes the title doubles as the third line of the first stanza and the first line of the second.

For more info on Naisaiku you could check this blog!

A goodbye, my friend

Dearest and cherished

I bid you farewell and

Etched in memories you shall stay

Until we meet again!

Colours light

Colours bright

A different colour

I shall paint tonight


Pastels of cream

Shades in a dream

Oh how pretty they look

I admire and beam


A flower with a twirl

Polkas and a curl

Myriad designs

Lines and swirls


Glitters, matte shades

Pink aqua or Jade

Multi-coloured hues

With time they fade


Sometimes big sometimes small

Sometimes they’re thin & tall

In various shapes all bottled up

Craving another, my fingers enthralled



This is my submission to the PoetryJam prompt – Bottle

I am simply in love with Nail polish.. Every time I visit a Cosmetic store the first thing my eyes search any new dazzling shade or bottle shapes!! The colours just entice me, I’m plain blinded by the scent of fresh nail paint and I end up buying a couple of them! 😀 Yeah! Although I think otherwise, but my Bank Balance sure doesnt like them! 😉
