Celadon Hues Nonet (Photo Prompt Monday)

Celadon hues of dialogues passed

fragments of coiled conversations

vacant rings of history

yet wrong numbers persist

no need to answer

dappled memoirs

letting go

of past

tones

Ripples (Photo Prompt Monday)

Anfractuous reflections

dancing ‘midst

sacred earthbound mists

and luscious unearthly dew


choosing boundaries

of neither stone nor shore

navigating above rippling mirrors

releasing pristine echoed light


unmapped liquid prisms reveal

curving serendipity

and

encompassing desires

destined to never be etched

upon papyrus

 

silent viaduct

defines only direction

never a purpose

Well, I finally decided to choose two Poetry Forms for the upcoming issue of the magazine.

  • The Ya-Du
  • The Cyhydedd Hir

Jen, over at Blog it or Lose It, told me about the Ya-Du.  She tries out all sorts of different poetry forms on a regular basis.  Here is the format for writing a Ya-Du:

  • 1, 2, or 3 stanzas, each with 5 lines;
  • Lines 1, 2, 3, and 4 have four syllables;
  • Line 5 has 5, 7, 9, or 11 syllables;
  • Lines 4 and 5 have end rhyme;
  • Lines 1, 2, and 3 have climbing rhyme in syllables 4, 3, and 2;
  • Lines 3, 4, and 5 have climbing rhyme in syllables 4, 3, and 2;
  • There should be a reference to the seasons.

Jen says, “Have faith: it is more difficult to explain than to do!”  When I post the submission form for the…

Canvas (Photo Prompt Monday)

Canvas, oh canvas!


scraped leavings

discarded by

sundered quires of imagination

beckoning disconsolate chimeras

of crumbled sagas spent

 

Be fair ….. yet …..

beware of unveiled passions

seemingly etched

for zephyr directed wraiths

to ignore ….. or heed …..

at their own peril


Canvas, oh canvas!


enticing silvered reverie

from within her argent palettes

moonlit prisms bathe

sacred runes

upon

numinous ruins


Never seen pasts ….. emerge

to swirl with Futures assoluta

ripped from Light herself

whispering her slated dreams


Canvas, MY canvas!

Multi Verse – Magnetic Poetry (Photo Prompt Monday)

delightful square distances

an equal measure of infinite hearts

insert two smart brilliant equations

Discover

Think

Learn

Love

divide every prime number

as if shaped by an

infinite universe

check her beauty

This ….. is sexy logic!

Marmairein (Photo Prompt Monday)

pathway to Morn’s blush

tarry not Gloom’s rush

be still yon chaotic flare

soothing lambent streams

blended aurous dreams

illuminated souls ….. dare

Stroll

Breathtaking …..
   yet
     providing eupnoeic splendour
       insufflating infinite morrows

Directionless …..
   yet
     breezing towards mythical sovereignties
       conjuring phantasmagorical auroras

Unencumbered …..
   yet
     dedicating a purposeful gait
       traversing fractaled littoral pathways

Untapped impressionable footsteps
   ….. to the fore
Sinuously inscribed footprints
   ….. abaft

Time and Tide
   guarantee no compass
     proffer no favours
       reward no virtues

Tide and Time
   offer but opportunity
     to the whimsical
   inscribe character
     upon their hearts
   impress ideals
     upon the worthy

Awash with cometary elders
Stroll ….. upon grains of eternity
who once were giants
