Tiny houses they’re —

Everywhere cause bigger —

Places cost too much.

—-

Because you cannot —

Tow your mansion off to,

Beaches or camping.

——-

Because you can go,

Anywhere, being comfortable —

When feeling at home.

Poem: Senryu (5,7,5) – “Separately  Together” #introtopoetry #amwriting #senryu


Thanks to The Daily Post for the words Layers and Autonomy. Also for Poetry 101 the prompt is imperfect and Limrick. I’ve chosen not to do limericks.

——

Obvious is it? 

No one has clarity,

Only shadows.

—–

Glancing upon you,

I search through layers,

Facates hid inside.

——

Peeling back your words,

Paint shows original coat.

What’s left; I adore.

—–

Thought you could mask truth,

Thought you could delve deeper in,

The light reveals all.

——

Fear for yourself and —

Your autonomy might lose,

Love is freedom too.

——

Keep autonomy,

But also be us both; one. 

Separate, stay close. 

——

Give autonomy,

To me too; so I can breathe,

Inhale, no traps laid.

—–

 I’ll lose my layers,

If you lose all of yours; let fall —

Let skin talk tonight. 

—–

Dozing in the light,

Truth a battle call given,

Peace where we inhale.

——

Imperfect are we,

Flawed and marked; but love sees all,

Sees only beauty.

NaPoWriMo: Poem – Fortune Cookies – Senryu – “Wrong Cookie” 


img_1070-1

And now for today’s (optional) prompt! The number 13 is often considered unlucky, so today I’d like to challenge you to beat the bad luck away with a poem inspired by fortune cookies. You could write a poem made up entirely of statements that predict the future (“You will meet a handsome stranger”), aphoristic statements (“The secret to getting ahead is getting started)” or just silly questions (“How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?”) Or you could use a phrase you’ve actually received in a real fortune cookie as a title or first line. However you proceed, I hope you will feel fortunate in the results (do you get it? Do you get it? Rimshot, please). Happy writing!

Please see NaPoWriMo for more information.

Shines after downpour.

Happy life; You’ll enjoy good

Health; Oops — wrong cookie!

Words your soul, whispers

My ears listen well, dare tell?

Keep hidden sad words,

Feeling required, share;

Such wicked truths placating,

Your burden on me.

Your voice, a torch burns.

I said: listen — hear — boy!

Your voice divulges,

Words you form and persuade with,

Elusive, tender.

Encounteres brisk,

Love reigns harangued with bliss,

A moment consumed.

Fire in your fingers,

Deliberated enticed,

Enthralled and made rapt.

Poem: Senryu – ” No Thought.”


 Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

The 5/7/5 rule was made up for school children to understand and learn this type of poetry. For an in depth description of Haiku, please visit the Shadow Poetry Haiku, Senryu, and Tanka section. There is much more to senryu than the madeup 5/7/5 version.

Please see Shadow Poetry for more information.

He’s bewitching me,

I don’t perceive his allure.

He hides fatal flaws.

——

Lips to lips, regard,

Eyes which fascinate appeal,

His intentions veil.

—–

Articulated,

He fails to grasp pain is real,

He wounds without thought.
