Don’t

Don’t bullshit me with your
“I love you’s”
None of them bears witness
To how I grieve
Of witnessing you walk away
Everyday.

Don’t fool me with your
“I miss you”
Nothing compares to the pain
You inflicted on me
For being near yet so far away.

Don’t lull me with your
“I wanna be with you”
Nonsense, though
For up and till now you
Remain a fragment in my dreams.

Don’t say you love me…

An irrational (maybe for some) poetic rant of a woman in a coffee shop.

 

Songs of Love (triple haiku)

Kept among the clouds

Songs of my undying love

Waiting to be sung.

Let the angels sing

In joy, perfect harmony

Songs of love for you.

As you lay in bed

Sleep tight oh, my love so sweet

With my songs of love.

Can You Write the World’s Shortest Poem?

A fun poetry challenge.

Go Dog Go Café

We have had a couple of in depth poetry discussions over the last couple of weeks and a big thank you for taking part in the conversations. Today I thought I would bring a lighter air and a bit of fun to the Café and have a little poetry competition.

Earlier this week I had been doing some reading and came across what is claimed to be the world’s shortest poem. It is titled, Lines on the Antiquity of Microbes, or Fleas as it is more commonly known. The poem is a couplet written by Strickland Gillilan.

Adam
Had e’m

Ogden Nash wrote a poem in a similar vein called Further Reflections on Parsley.

Parsley
Is Gharsley

In 1975 boxer Muhammed Ali was giving a speech at Harvard University and discussing poetry on stage with journalist George Plimpton. When asked for the shortest poem of all time, Plimpton recited “Fleas”…

BROKEN

I didn’t know
how broken I am
‘Till you said …

“I can make it without you”.

Eternally (Triple Haiku)

 

 

Up unto the sky

Beyond life and even time

My treasure is you.

Over the night light

On the far side forever

My fondness is you.

And in afterlife

Farther than eternity

My passion is you.

I have been following the blog of DavyD “inside the mind of DavyD” for a little while now. I used to write long narrative verses. I seldom write short poems and verses, until I discovered his works. He writes brilliant and amazing short poems and verses most especially when he’d accompany it with an equally stunning photograph or computer-generated images. And just then that I thought I could try it myself too. This afternoon, on the way home I took this stunning photograph and wrote a triple haiku alongside as my expression of my eternal devotion to my beloved and of course as inspired by Davy’s beautiful short verses.

I have been writing short poems for a while now. I enjoyed the most my haikus which actually lead to a wonderful haiku collaboration with the talented Rose of the Poet Rummager.

So here’s for Davy https://davydblog.com  and Rose https://poetrummager.com for inspiring me to try on short poems.
