~::~ Autumn ~::~

The Thursday Poetry Rally is back 😀

This time its the 30th week 😀

I cant believe we have crossed so many weeks already 🙂

http://jingleyanqiu.wordpress.com/2010/10/06/thursday-poets-rally-week-30/

Time passes soon.. yes indeed it felt just like yesterday when the year 2010 started and now its october already..

October-November, a time when Autumn sets in and the trees are left bereft..

and my poem today for the rally is an Acrostic on Autumn (thanks Leo for the prompt and the encouragement 🙂 )

~::~ Autumn ~::~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All leaves dry

Under blue sky

Tumbling down trees

Unfair harsh breeze

Myriad hues lost

Nicked by the frost

I hope you enjoyed the poem..

Please feel free to leave your comments and help me improve..

Thats it from Megzone for now..

~::~ Two Little Girls ~::~

Yippeee..!!! It’s monday and yes indeed I am back with my poetry for Monday’s Child.. 🙂

http://childrensverse.blogspot.com/

and this week has seen an awesome pic 🙂

I soooooo loved it that poetry flowed automatically 🙂

so here’s my verse 😀

~::~ Two Little Girls ~::~


Lizzy and Missy two little girls

1blond 1 brunette, both with curls

Sisters them, playing in the slush

Muddy dresses, Mommy asked them to rush

“Look at yourselves, dresses dirty, unkempt hair”

Got them all cleaned, fresh clothes to wear

“Now you are grounded for days to come”

Hearing these words poor girl became numb

“You are ought not to go out and play

Inside the house I need you to stay”

“Help me around the house with chores”

Their puppy –eyed look, mommy ignores

“Here’s a pack of wool, you shall work on

Only when it’s done, shall your punishment be withdrawn”

Now little Lizzy and Missy sat on a stool

Busy sorting out red balls of wool

and here’s my acceptance poem 🙂

Something thats been happening to me off-late…

~::~ Poetic Woes ~::~


A single line of verse

Lost in lingo-universe

My mind’s as blank as slate

Wonder wats happening off late

The poetry that flowed freely once

Seems to be mocking at me askance

No words no rhymes no fire

Even pics fail to inspire

I cry alone craving for words

They fly around like scornful birds

I hope I wish these shadows lift

And once again my poetic boat’s adrift

I hope you guys liked this…

and here’s my poem for this week’s rally

~::~ WHY?? ~::~

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, why?

.

 

Keeping the hopes of flame burning?

Leaving my poor heart yearning..

Why do I look for every hint?

That can set my eyes at glint

Every minutiae that I can sift

To give my spirits a lift

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, why?

.

 

Moments of Togetherness regaling

Relics of optimism still unfailing

A flickering prospect looms at large

Insanity seems to have taken charge

Albeit ruthless truth lashes out

Callous destiny I can’t flout

Why do I do this to myself? Why?

When I know the answer, Why?

Jingle Hosts the Thursday Poets Rally at

http://jingleyanqiu.wordpress.com/2010/08/11/thursday-poets-rally-week-26-august-12-18/

If you are a poet and dont mind devoting a day of your blogging week to poems.. this is where u should be 😀

As for me.. This is my Entry

~~~~~~~~~

~::~ Frog Prince Revisited ~::~

 

What an irony of my life

Just to be another’s wife

Umpteen tests undertaken

So that identities aint mistaken

Every one that comes in front

Impolite and outright blunt

Moment they lay eyes on me

Flock my patio hopping in glee

Unabashed youth here none

 I still await my perfect one

Wonder how many more kisses to blow

Till I find my one, who would show

His Princely-ness, Chivalry and candor

My perfect knight in shining armor..

When shall thou come O prince..?

When shall my true love win..?

~~~~

Also Ji has been Sweet enough to give me a Perfect Poet Award yet again…

Eeeeeeeeeee 😀 :mrgreen:

Thankkiieee sooo much Ji 😀

so i hope you guys like it 🙂

Here it goes 😀

~~~~~

~::~ 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..

and here’s what I came up with…

Sev I hope I lived upto your expectations 😀

~~~~

~::~ Random Thoughts ~::~


As I play the music

A wave hits over me

A feeling of chaos

A dream I am chasing

I’m flying I’m flowing

For words I’m floundering

The beat takes a rhythm

Slowly gathers pace

The chaotic mind

Also on a plane

A journey they begin

A collage of pictures

Captured by time

A feeling of overwhelming

My Soul bursts apart

Scattered into smithereens

Every particle depicts me

The person that I am

My soul my essence

Even my shadow in its presence

As if a movie rewinds

And plays again

Over and over in my heart

A fluttering of wings

A butterfly tickles

Some flowers bloom

Couple smiles captured

In my memory

Some corner of my brain

There exists a me apart from me

This is also my acceptance post of the Perfect Poet Award Week 23 🙂

Fresh

Drizzling Refreshing invigorating

Freshness in the leaves

Monsoon


Autumn

Bereft dull

Crumpling fading descending

Break off, the leaves

Fall


Winter

Harsh cold

Snowing chilling

Blizzard burying leaves

Frost


Spring

Colourful beautiful

Blooming blossoming flowering

Green are all the leaves

Vernal

Thursday Poets Rally ~ An Evening Of Life..!!

This is yet another Loop poetry. Though this was created by Hellon, I was introduced to it by none other than Raji..

Rules of loop poetry are very simple and as follows:

There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.

Variations:

1. Stanzas, writers choice on the number, no rhyming, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.

2. One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.

3. Couplets mixed with 4 line stanzas, the last word, first word scheme is maintained in the stanzas. It can also be used in the couplets. Rhyme scheme is ab, cc, defg, hh, ii, jklm, nn, oo.

So here’s my loop poetry for the day.. I wrote it on my way from office..

~*~

An Evening Of Life….


Cloudy pleasant Evening…

Evening spent travelling..

Travelling through narrow roads..

Roads filled with traffic..

Traffic that seems unmoving..

Unmoving to fast pace of the city..

City that never does sleep…

Sleep, the only thing that eludes me..

Me a crazy insane character..

Character who has a fetish for poetry…

Poetry the best way to set myself free..

Free to soar like a bird..

Bird of desires and dreams..

Dreams make up my life..

Life that’s unpredictable..

~*~

YIppeee..!!!! yes yes not only cos its Thursday and time for the Poets Rally but also cos I won the Perfect Poet Award… aaahhh..!!! bliss.. complete Bliss…!!
