Day : 25


Clerihew



Grey!

He looks on us as easy prey.

Blinking with those big almond eyes,

He has been known to change his guise!



Day 24 :


Love Song



Come let us move, you and I

Now that the morning sun is spreading its arms.

Like a joyous patient awake on a gurney;

Let us walk on shiny newly fallen dew.

The chirping magpies

Harking back to peaceful, and sweaty nights

And cheerful cafes with fluttering curtains;

Driving on the highway, mesmerised

By the passing white lines.

Which leads us to the reason of existence

Please don't ask " What is it ? "

Let us just move on in our lives.


In this life people come and go

Swapping stories of long ago !



Prompt : Parody of a famous poem

Poet : T. S. Eliot

Poem : The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

Day 23:


The Fool





You are the fool but forever cool.

The face you show is different

From the one hidden.

The sun always shines on you,

So what if you stand on a precipice.

The faithful dog follows the leader,

Not aware of the duality.

Sometimes a dopey minstrel,

At others a sarcastic wit!

Is he standing on head or heels?


Day 22:


Ode to Spring



Spring quickens and awakens those in death

It gives birth to tender leaves and new buds

Rain falls on plants, blows on them a new breath.


The pitter patter turns to thundering floods,

Of destruction there is no lasting fear.

It rejuvenates the ground, their life blood.


Flowers bloom, birds lay eggs, springs sparkle clear

The earth wears a plush green carpet of grass.

This shimmering spring comes once every year.

Day 21 :


Rubaiyat



Sometimes the sunrise is such a surprise,

It peeps through the clouds, a smile in its eyes.

There you are, caught again, quite unaware!

But you are such a delight, such a prize!


Morning breeze swayed, to display its ware

It wafted up the scents of blooms, with care,

Trying hard not to show, competition

To the rising sun, cautiously beware.


What is the sunrise without intention

To join the morning breeze, an expression

Of itself, two sides of the only face,

Glimpse of the facade of his mansion!

Landays



1: An old one!

White rooster crowing on the rooftop.

Girl with the purple veil, a boy is in love with you.


2: A new one!

 Two seeds of the red pomegranate.

Eyeless he lost a nation, body less never had one.
