Oops!

Some
May think
I forgot,
Or I don’t care.
But some would be wrong.

Now
Posting
Time once more
I learn “Publish”
Was a thing not pressed

Things
Were lost
In haste, but
A day enjoyed
Is never a waste


National Poetry Month for 2021 Day 18
Using GirlGriot’s Arun form once more, I explain what happens when things get a busy for the Raivenne and a minor detail, like pressing Publish on yesterday’s post doesn’t happen. I did not notice it did not go through until I came to post today. Oops!

This Morning

Calm
Peaceful
I slumber 
In morning void
Of unneeded noise

Crash!
Rumble!
Thump! Bang! Boom!
That which man builds
Brings with it much sound

I
Wake to
Cacophony
Of construction
Morning peace now gone

I begin National Poetry Month for 2021 whinging in poem as this morning I was once again startled awake by the sounds of construction happening around my block before my alarm clock had the honors.

Today’s form: the Arun.

A nonce poem created by friend and fellow blogger, GirlGriot, an Arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one syllable with each line. 1/2/3/4/5 — 3x. There are no other rhyme or structural requirements. 

Keeps On Moving

Time
Tick tock
Transient
It can stand still
Yet keeps on moving

Hands
Digits
Grains of sand
It crawls or flies
But keeps on moving

All
What comes
Fore or aft
From womb to tomb
It keeps on moving

The Canvas – The Artist

The
Canvas
Is pristine
The artist sighs
Prepares the first brush

The
Canvas
Is intrigued
The artist picks
Lets the brush drizzle

The
Canvas
Is moaning
The artist smiles
Chooses the next brush

The
Canvas
Is complete
The artist bows
Blows the brushes out

Wax play

dVerse Poets Pub: Quadrille #30 – Drizzle

Mish wants us to drizzle out s Quadrille -a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title- using the word drizzle.

Today’s other form: the Arun.

A nonce poem created by friend and fellow blogger, GirlGriot, an Arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one syllable with each line. 1/2/3/4/5 — 3x. There are no other rhyme or structural requirements. Because today is Quadrille Monday, I took creative license of her form  by adding a fourth stanza to meet the 44 word requirement for a Quadrille.

National Poetry Writing Month: Day 10

No! Uh, No? Ugh, yes.

No!
I’m not
About to
Commit to yet
Another challenge

My
Body
Unwilling
My muse smiles with
Antici- pation

Sigh,
Do? Don’t?
Either way damned.
Choices, choices
We will wait and see

National Poetry Writing Month 2017 – Day 1

Yeah, yeah, yeah – I’m here in it – again. As you knew I would be, GirlGriot. Zip it.

I’m beginning this year’s challenge as I did last year by honoring the person who smiled knowingly as I whined about participating this year, knowing full well – glutton I am- I was going to, by using her form the Arun.

A nonce poem created by friend and fellow blogger, GirlGriot, an Arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one syllable with each line. 1/2/3/4/5 — 3x. There are no other rhyme or structural requirements. Today, I follow the pattern she’s set, left aligned and un-rhymed.  I will take a little poetic license again, in future runs of the form.

A to Z Challenge 2017
A to Z Challenge - A
A is for Arun

Here I Start

Here

A new day
A new chapter
Filling it with words

Time
Once more
Ticks its tocks
Daily challenge
Of what I can write

Rhyme
Rhythm
Whatever
Will be – will be
This poetic month

Real again

They
are gone,
with my heart
the sweet  twilights
of which I once sung

Like
the joys
and the pains
of loving you
now just memory

Yet
eyes closed
soul open
I can feel you
Dusk is real again

National Poetry Month – Day 13

Contented

.
.
Sun
Dappled
Shimmering
Full of promise
With daylight dawning

Tears
Are done
I know this
Down to my core
As I stretch yawning

So
I rise
Contented
Feel my soul smile
In this new morning
