My (unusual) Poem

           My (unusual) Poem
 

My poems are not poetical
So they cannot be magical.

I write them in the afternoon
Unpoetic time no stars no moon.

I seldom use figures of speech
My words within a grade five’s reach.

My inspiration, not love
But a flying dove.

My poems are not poetical
They’re down to earth like ***pandesal.

***Pandesal or pan de sal (Spanish for “salt bread”) is a common bread roll in the Philippines made of flour, eggs, yeast,
sugar, and salt.

In response to Friday Foto Fun – Unusual

Unusual – this ornate Hindu temple is in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney
surrounded by Australian bush!

or

creatively write about an unusual situation?

 

Come on the more the merrier, please share and read each other’s photo posts!

  2. This was beautiful. A poem does not need to be poetic, but this one was cleverly poetic.

    that was an unusual sight, loved it! and your writing poetical or not speaks to all levels, simple words hold more logic and truth, they are beautiful words I treasure so much because they come from you

  9. I beg to disagree. You’re poems are magical, definitely. Touching the cores hidden only, from the shallow waves of the sea. See, how you inspired me? 😊
