I wrote your name on the sand

The waves washed them away

I wrote it on my hand

Water washed it away

I wrote it on a paper

The wind just blew it away

And So I etched your name in my heart

Now we’ll be together until death do us apart!

  And for some Godforesaken reason I miscalculated the dates and forgot to publish this on saturday! :’( so here it is for today! :? yet another free verse :) Picture Courtesy – Google, Keywords – Etched

Day 4 A-Z Challenge D = Dreams

~::~ Dream in Rosy Hues ~::~

Deep_in_a_Dream_by_Marinshe

I dream a dream in rosy hues

Of sunkissed cheeks and glassy dews

Chirping cicadas and humming bees

Of fragrant lavender and tulip blues

 

Of silken stirrings in lake azure

Of waiting by aromatic moors

Dreamy eyes awaiting your arrival

I dream a dream in rosy hues

 

Of your presence, our hushed schmooze

Of letting the world around, silently diffuse

Of intertwined fingers & butterfly touches

I dream a dream in rosy hues

 

Of melting souls intimately fused

Of heightened spirits and love suffused

Of mingling scents and interlaced bodies

I dream a dream in rosy hues

 

 I dream a dream in rosy hues

Of you, our love and heathery dunes

Of entwined fingers and twiddly toes

Lost for eternity while zephyr blows

For a change between dabbling with poetry forms, I thought I should do a free verse :)

I hope you like it.

Dear Mr. Chandler

Was not a clever handler

With sarcasm as his Twin

Arguments he tried to win

Alas he lost himself to Monica

~::~ Nocturnal Voyage ~::~

Fly away my dear

Towards blue skies clear

As stars whisper secrets sweet

Mellow dreams appeal

In pied shades of teal

Towards puffy clouds retreat        

Traversing afar

Wishing on a star

Skyward bound the solar way

Rosy Sun embarks

Sending fiery sparks

Ushering in a new day

Awaking from dreams

Of stars & moonbeams

Merrily the wind bellows

Kindling up all pores

Tiny eyes all sore

Sunrays streaming through windows

The Alouette

The Alouette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, with the following set rules:

 Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7

Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b

 

The form name is a French word meaning ‘skylark’ or larks that fly high, the association to the lark’s song being appropriate for the musical quality of this form. The word ‘alouette’ can also mean a children’s song (usually sung in a group), and although this poetry form is not necessarily for children’s poetry (but can be applied that way), it is reminiscent of that style of short lines.  Preference for the meter accent is on the third syllable of each line  

~::~ Fly Me To The Moon ~::~

After a long time I trying hard to break away from the shackles of poet’s block and attempting to come up with new poems…

The only way I can indeed get back and get the inspiration and motivation to write  is by attempting various forms of poetry.

And here I have found a brand new form  - Kyrielle Sonnet.

Well I have done the Kyrielle before too –  you can find the poem here 

So this time its a Kyrielle Sonnet  -  blending both the forms of kyrielle refrain and sonnet style

Read the end of the post for the exact description :) for now here’s the poem

~::~ Fly Me To The Moon ~::~

 

Upon svelte dreams of velvet skies

Drifting past iridescent highs

Every spectacle makes me swoon

Oh firefly! Fly me to the moon

 

Feathery clouds of midnight blue

Where I’m headed, I have no clue

Breathtaking moments, make me croon

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon

 

Leaving trail of cottony hue

Transcending sense of dejavu

My heart, it sings a merry tune

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon

 

Upon svelte dreams of velvet skies

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon

Kyrielle Sonnet

A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and  a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing  as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

 AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.

~::~ Midnight Flight ~::~

The Pictorial, created by Emily Romano is a type of shape poem, where the entire poem must be printed in slanting lines indicative of the thought in those lines. The poem should consist of three lines with five words or less per line. There should be rhyme somewhere in the poem, either end rhyme or internal rhyme.

Here’s my try at Pictorial

Note: When you read the lower set of lines read them from the last line moving upwards.

I hope you liked the poem.. do let me know your thoughts..

~::~ Pre-Destined ~::~

People we meet

Rarely stay

Excruciatingly difficult every

Day

Everything in life

Stays for a while

Timeless memories

In our minds

Nothing can be altered as

Everything in our life is

Destined to happen

I hope you like it… Do leave your comments and let me know your thoughts on this..

~::~ Dreamy Boat ~::~

 

On dark foggy night

Sailing surreal boat

Twinkly stars, Moon bright

In dreams I’m afloat

 

Sailing surreal boat

O’er moors hills vales

Envious birds, I gloat

Leaving wispy trails

 

Twinkly stars, moon bright

Gliding past valleys, seas

Panoramic sights

Magical carpet flees

 

In dreams I’m afloat

Light feathery gait

A pink horizon coat

Lovely dawn awaits

Quadrilew

Created by C. G. V. Lewis, the Quadrilew is a form of quatrain poem with an abab rhyming scheme,

repeating lines, and contains an alternating syllable structure. In the first verse, the poet may either start with a five or six syllable line.  If the choice is five then the ‘sounding’ syllable count is (and opposite if the count is six):

 VERSE ONE,

Line 1, 5 syllables.

Line 2, 6 syllables.

Line 3, 5 syllables.

Line 4, 6 syllables.

 VERSE TWO,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 2 of the FIRST verse) has 6 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 5 syllables

Line 3 new line of 6 syllables

Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

 VERSE THREE,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 3 of the first verse) has 5 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 6 syllables.

Line 3 new line of 5 syllables.

Line 4 new line of 6 syllables.

 VERSE FOUR,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 4 of the first verse) has 6 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 5 syllables.

Line 3 new line of 6 syllables.

Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

 If  the first line of verse one has 6 syllables then the pattern is

Verse 1, 6565,

Verse 2, 5656,

Verse 3, 6565,

Verse 4 5656:  (the rhyme pattern still being abab.)

~::~ Hopes Affray ~::~

~::~ Hopes Affray ~::~ 

Fog unfurls, diurnal draws close

My soul awakens, dawn of night

Feeble stars arise at twilight

 

Many years, I have lain to doze

Awaiting influx yet today

Advents deceive, to my dismay

 

Standing there with a blood red rose

Patience ruffle and surrender

Hopes affray, emotions tender

 

Destiny belies, as life slows

Worthlessness slyly raises head

I recline, again on death-bed

Constanza

The Constanza, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of five or more 3-line stanzas.  Each line has a set meter of eight syllables. The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.

 

Rhyme scheme: a/b/b, a/c/c, a/d/d, a/e/e, a/f/f………etc.
