::Waves of Memories::


Waves
crashing
against the
silver shoreline,
echoing memories of yesterdays.

Gently trickles down a solitary
tear of unborn
dream, sleeping
in my
eyes.

::Rainbow::



splashed across the sky
in vibrant colors
arching along cotton clouds,
slightly drenched
sunkissed sky displaying
a multihued smile.

::What's My Fault:::

What's My Fault


Hollow faith caress bruised esteem,
scars hidden underneath the seam,
night reverberate silent screams,
aborted dreams, aborted dreams


fractured by lustful invasion,
modesty lies among treason,
Why victims are pinned as reason?
unfold questions, unfold questions.

 
drenched in shame, locked in guilty vault,
she gulps down his ruthless assault,
striving for answers, 'What's my fault?'
When life will halt, when life will halt?

** Whether its molestation, rape or any other sexual assault - Why is it that our society victimizes the victim? Why do the victims have to live in shame and suffer the ridicule?


Form: Monotetra
The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form,is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.

Thursday Poet's Rally ::Beautiful Morn::

Beautiful Morn(Etheree)

 



Dews
shimmer
as sunbeams
sprinkle warmth on
sleepy canvas of
tangerine horizon;
blinking, yawning milieu wakes,
feathers flutter higher, chirping
a song of life, dancing to the tune
that embraces another beautiful morn.





*Wrote it a long time back - 2009/4/22

**The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
