Journey With A New Friend


Wilde Beast Bumping Heads

Wilde Beast Bumping Heads

Journey With A New Friend

Each new friend speaks a new language.
Unique histories to share.
So much to say, it’s a traffic stall.

Rare books of knowledge.
Scriptures delineating a process.
Each new friend speaks a new language.

Shared representations?
A journey that is just introduced?
Unique histories to share.

Wilde beast bumping heads
on a prehistoric plain.
So much to say, it’s a traffic stall.

Today’s challenge was to write Chained verse which links together stanzas by carrying a rhyme over from one stanza to the next.

This simply means that you use a rhyme scheme which repeats a rhyme from one stanza in the succeeding stanzas, in this case a pattern of:
a-b-c
d-e-a
f-g-b
h-i-c

four child with book senryu

sailing island-ward
tireless monsters await
where the wild things are

all the eggs have hatched
quaking and waddling road-ward
make way for duckling

man with yellow hat
curious monkey named George
unlimited fun

what words can you read
child with upside down book
living life forward

Bridge

sunset tunnel

end of world
planned pre-extinction
puzzled driver won’t return

no more ginger-filled
usual morning cup
postponed indefinitely

tears burned
evening light
white-fronted entryways

pleasure
slowly spilling
down ragging river

stretched pathway
leads to invariable demise
sunset tunnel

Children in Their Natural Wild State

three cultural revolutionary tanka

highest dimensions
souls reawakened
flourishing forces
veil between worlds uplifted
revolutionary wave

insurgent powers
on catastrophic courses
charge into the fray
take advantage of the weak
holding only humble hope

sensory rebirth
down to earth metaphysics
new world envisioned
cultural independence
streaming literary works

withered wanderer

withered wanderer
traversing
interwoven seasons
nourishing summer rain
sipped off
rarest petals
scattered colors
of autumnal equinox
coolness gathers
whitecapped rapids
fleeting blossoms
live without tenacity

melody becomes a young angel


Boredom by Kenia Cris

melody becomes a young angel

melody becomes a young angel
living in a secular world
dirty, opportunistic
soul in constant distress

majestic music, sorrowful
trembling amazingly
resting in the shady peace
of an earthly train yard
