Here’s my take on Day 9’s theme Cold, in the form of Concrete Poetry (poetry playing with shapes of words) using poetic device Anaphora/Epistrophe.
Billowing smoke rises from
Chimney of every homely houses
Ringing of bells, she heard it
Ringing of bells, he heard it
Holding onto each other
Embracing each other
Is all they need to
Day in day out I’ve been on the job
Wondering whether I’ve picked the perfect one
Always there’s something gnawing within
Slowly spreading all over my mind
Until one day uncertainty has taken over
I know this feeling has to stop, I have to do it
So I leave all the shining glitters behind
And started off looking for real gold
There is not a straight answer
To what’s running through my heart and mind
Time is not on my side
Yet I keep on searching deep into my soul
Until one day certainty has taken over
I know this decision has to begin, I have to do it
So I step out with little steps ahead
And started off looking for real success
