Moonlight Slow Dance

 

our
eyes met
we gazed longer

 

my
heartbeats
as yours too

 

our
song playing
sweetly as ever

 

night
dimly lit
fitful silvery moonlight

 

we
hold hands
and slow dance

 

sailing

feels like
moonlight slow dance

 

P.S.

The poetic form used is hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words.

World of Words prompt, which is a beautiful Bengali word “জোছনা” (jochona) meaning moonlight.

Our Love

NaPoWriMo Day 11

Our optional prompt for the day is based on the concept of the language of flowers.

with
trembling knees
we walk steadily
where
roses laid
down the aisle
symbolic
of love
pure and true
will
you take
my hand forever
and
hold me
never let go?
from
this day
forward to eternity
we
love until
our dying days

Day 10 NaPoWriMo

Today’s prompt is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem.

Slow Dance

 

our
hearts beat
a steady pulse

 

together
we smile
take the chance

 

slowly
we hold
hands, slow dance

 

FIVE HAIKU POEMS: BRUISED, YET HOPEFUL

FIVE HAIKU POEMS: BRUISED, YET HOPEFUL

This poem was a collaboration with Rose of Poet Rummager published on May 4, 2017.
I am posting it again because this is one of many haikus I have written and a personal favorite; while at the same time one of the collaborations which really boosted my site.

Within this brick wall,
lies my heart where no light shines.
Rejected, it sleeps.

Hidden in the dark –
dreaming so damn hard and tight.
You’re not mine, it weeps.

In this tiny room,
my heart beats against the stone –
bruised yet still hopeful.

Bleeding and in pain,
it yearns to be free again.
Walls start to crumble.

Deep scars you might keep.
Love may fade, but you decide –
Are you strong or weak?

Little Things (double haiku)

Every little thing
you do is what makes me fell
so in love with you

Oh, where have all those
little sweet nothings by now
miss them don’t you know?

Here is a beautiful song that says..

Little Things
(One Direction)

Your hand fits in mine like it’s made just for me
But bear this mind it was meant to be
And I’m joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me

I know you’ve never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You’ve never loved your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I’ll love them endlessly

I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it’s you, oh it’s you, they add up to
I’m in love with you and all these little things

You can’t go to bed without a cup of tea
Maybe that’s the reason that you talk in your sleep
And all those conversations are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me

I know…

Church -Haiku

The mountains will sing
To the church as house of God
Where faith is revered.

A fun art created by my daughter. It’s made of colored sand glued together (like a jiggsaw puzzle) to create a colorful art version of a church.
