Unopened Letter

A letter from the past washed ashore,
Bottled up feelings hidden for years,
Trapped in the isolated island of emotions,
He penned the last of his sane notions.

Her shawl flew above soaring winds,
Clambering to catch the chance that slipped,
Waiting for the love that never returned,
Inside her heart only sadness burned.

A glint buried in sands caught her eye,
Unraveled the message that finally arrived,
Relief of his news answered her broken heart,
Gripped with loss again she is forever scarred.

Always In Life

New Beginnings

He gazed at me and spoke
“Are you ready?”
I smiled and answered
“Always and ever”

The path of life

Valley of sadness
Moment of silence
Peak of happiness
Times of euphoria

I turned to him and said
“What do you think?”
He smiled and winked
“Always a brand new day”

Tales of Zodiac — Gemini & Libra

-Luna-
Is she the darkest light?
Once a saintly warrior
Fighting the righteous plight
When war and invasion began
She fought with all her might
But in time she saw the truth beneath
Army generals bereft of justice
Sent shivers down her spine

Fighting a war that could never win
She forsaken her saintly title
Knowing what she has always been
She succeeded the Court of Libra
Watching stars under dusty wind
Guiding the path true and wise
Balancing the perfect pair of scales
Upholding judgment of justice impartial
And wisdom in her sword of shining sheen

-Pollux & Castor-
Is he the lightest dark?
The most powerful dual swordsman
Fierce and formidable in his battles
Yet kind and gentle towards his companions
He knew a different soul resided
Within him is another man
Whom he called brother but departed
To him he surrendered his right hand

In the war that ravaged
He finally met his match
On the verge of death he couraged
Enacted a spell binding him and he
Releasing Castor’s soul he raged
Holding two swords with his brother
They defeated the unjust soldier
Inheriting the splendid Court of Gemini

-Luna and Pollux-
Residing in the constellation
Luna glimmered in eternal silver
Pollux glistened in glorious violet
In the luminescence of their star lights
Their stories are to be told

Gemini of Recall Castor & Pollux and Libra of Justice Luna

 


This is a prequel poetry to the fan-fiction I’m going to write about these 2 characters in a mobile game I’m playing — Tower of Saviors. It’s a combination of original and found poetry 🙂

Also in response to this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge (3 Dec) with prompt Luminescence.

Writing 201 : Poetry — Symphony

Finally I’ve made it!! I’ve reached the end of Writing 201 and to conclude it, the editors have came up with the famous poetry form “Sonnet”. I remembered studying Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 during high school but sadly they didn’t teach poetry as in depth as they do here.

The last day’s theme is Pleasure, in the form of Sonnet using poetic device Apostrophe.

Symphony

Fill the halls, dim the lights!
Dear musician, can you hear me?
The moment has arrived, set your mind free
As I tune the note, correct to right
On the music sheet is where you set your sight
The score starts in B minor key
The conductor now comes on stage, can you see?
Calm your nerves, let your music take flight!
There goes the notes, page by page
Magic baton in his hands, rise and fall
Everyone is a star on stage
Dear audience, are you enthralled?
Begins like the river it raged
And it ends like a calm after squall

A little note on practice : This is the rhyming form I used : a b b a a b b a c d c d c d

I was inspired by watching the piano concerto video of the recently crowned winner of the 17th International Chopin Competition — Seong Jin Cho.

Writing 201 : Poetry — Snowfall

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.

Snowfall

Snow
Falling on
Concrete pavement
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
Feel warm
Snow
Falling on
Concrete pavement

Little Steps #DefiningSuccess #memeespoetryparties

HappyWomanJumping

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
