Here it goes πŸ˜€

~~~~~

~::~ Footboard traveller ~::~


People think I am a freak

Wondering what chaos I shall wreak

Seeing me they want to gag

Just cos I am dressed in rag

Shamelessly begging for alms

Cupping my blistered palms

Destitute, I have no home

Throughout the day I roam

Western, central and harbor line

But when I board people whine

I sit there staring at passing sights

Sunset, sunrise and dim street lights

Mountains, bridges, concrete jungles

Pass by, as a prayer my lip burbles

Alone I look for a place to rest and sleep

Full with crowds and fests, slowly my feet creep

Full of suspicion, characteristic dereliction

Life has been nothing but a malediction

Tirade and anger seething in every heart

Almighty resides in the fancy trinket mart

Going gets tough but seldom do I look askance

Survival is my goal, paltry is my chance

Don’t know where I started

My life seems thwarted

Don’t know where this would end

Striving for a livelihood, I defend

No I am not a propitious reveler

Rather just a footboard traveler

~~~

I hope you liked my experimentation.. Do let me know your thoughts…!!

Thats it from Megzone for now..

Keep Smiling…!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios..!!! :mrgreen:

Thursday Poets Rally ~ SUICIDE

This week as usual I am posting the poem one full day in advance…. πŸ˜€

Why simply cos I feel so… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜†

Every Thursday Jingle hosts a Poets Rally at her blog

You too can participate if you are an avid poet and would like to pitch in.. All you need to do is let Jingle know at the following thread

http://jingleyanqiu.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/thursday-poets-rally-week-12-april-1-7-2010/

the following is my humble offering to this week’s poets rally….. πŸ˜€

So here we go..

~~

Princess our darling Raji is known for her awes-inspiring jaw-hanging nerve-wrecking art at shape poetry..

Raji is a very dear friend and fellow blogger… She inspires me with her poetry and encourages and motivates me to continouosly re-invent my style and my poetry… Hence in many ways I call her my teacher/guru/mentor…

But today.. she has compelled me to commit suicide… her latest offering of Shape Poetry rendered me and my mind useless…… 😦

So if at all you guys Β find my body.. do blame it on RAJI…. πŸ˜€

~~~~~~~

oh well I tried to create a noose.. I wonder if it looks like one… 😦

I hope you guys doΒ realizeΒ now why I am committing suicide..

I cant ever match her shaping skills… πŸ˜₯

Sigh..!!! I am DEAD… 😦

Now i think we need to start a DEAD POETS RALLY also 😈

there are some awards that i need to accept and award which will take a complete dedicated post tomorrow..

thats it from megzone for now πŸ™‚

Keep Smiling..!!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios..!! :mrgreen:

and now the poem for this week πŸ˜€

This week for the Rally i have come up with a different form of poetry….

Mini-monoverse

The Mini-monoverse is a poetry form originated byΒ Emily Romano.Β  Each Mini-monoverse is

made up of two stanzas of five three-syllable lines.Β  They rhyme scheme isΒ a/a/a/a/a for the first

stanza andΒ b/b/b/b/b for the second stanza.Β  For a double Mini-monoverse just add two more

stanzas.Β  They rhyme scheme for the third stanza should beΒ  c/c/c/c/c and for the fourth stanza,

d/d/d/d/d.Β  It is desirable that the Mini-monoverse tell a story, but this is not a hard and fast rule.

Cold Swimming pool


Lo Behold.!!

Icy cold

Jumped inΒ and rolled

Advanced uncontrolled

Agony untold

Stupid act

Very Bad impact

Inability to react

Matter of fact..

Forgot to retract

Poetic Resonance..!!


Poetic Resonance

~~~

The higher I go

The farther I see

I see sumthin glitter

And my heart says β€œgee!!”

I try to reach it

With my hands out stretched

The more I get closer

It’s seemingly far fetched

Suddenly its approaching

β€œI’m nearing” I exclaim

I see it shining bright

Its mine afterall I proclaim

With a surge of new optimism

And determination I proceed ahead

I see a smoky phase advancing

Oh so carefully I tread

The smoke encapsulates me

Making me shiver to bones

A fuzzy feeling grows over

And my head groans..

~~~

Thank you Jingle for the Week-8 Perfect Poet award.. and thank you Severny for voting me πŸ™‚
