Wishful Thinking (Ya-Du)

Can time unwind?

In my mind‘s eye

a kinder fate

two soul mates meld;

a state yearned for….yet withheld….

≈  ♣  ≈

It is common to feel that one has “missed the boat” by “settling” down early with someone who, later on, doesnt “Feel” like a soul mate.

The Ya-Du is a very difficult poetic form.  This is an easy representation of the syllabic count and required rhyme.  See if I did it correctly!

Sharp Words (Cinquain)

Sharp tongue–
blade thrusts deeply,
a mercilous home strike.
Hands on mouth, remorse negates scene–
Forgive

I sometimes feel like this little girl.  If tears could leave scars my face would be unrecognizable, both from giving and receiving harsh words.  It is in moments of stress that we must take the most care over what we say to others.  And I, with impulsive need, must be twice as careful.

 

Cinquain: A Cinquain is written using a pattern. This type of poem only has five lines. Each line follows a specific pattern.

Line 1: 2 syllables Line 2: 4 syllables Line 3: 6 syllables Line 4: 8 syllables Line 5: 2 syllables

Rage (Etheree)

Rage….

uncaged

my mind roars

emotions soar

trapped in wild-eyed craze

clarity stripped hate-haze

impulse driven mindless roar

violence strikes, evens the score

hysterical screams, mouth-choking oaths

shredded sibilant words rake us  both

This was an attempt to debrief myself and describe what I felt after a monumental fight.

Broken Wings (Etheree)

Lost

ardor,

sensuous

thought envelops

frozen memory,

melting failed fairy dust.

No escape from locked despair.

Unblessed, troubled relationship;

these feelings screaming into dark night

as broken fairy wings…… surrender flight.
