Perplexed – #poetry #aprpad

Promptly Written

Prompt: pick an emotion, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem

Perplexed

Explain to me, if you will
how you wormed your way
into my life – I am guarded
against you wandering types
and the lies you tell

What ruse did you use
to captivate my attention?
Surely not those batting eyes
or that seductive smile
I’d catch on to those

Maybe it was the sly shift
from seduction to intellect
You charmed me with brains
knocked the wind out of me
with your witty repartee

Now that you are here
perhaps I will play along
match you tit for tat
just don’t expect my heart
to willingly be broken

You’ve peaked my curiosity
I’m no stranger to the whims
of a flutterby such as you
I know the day will come
when we part ways

‘Til then, I will wait and see
and…

Elephants #atozchallenge #haiku

penned in moon dust

elephants in the sunrise

some just see ivory

great strides to let them be free

content to walk in line

***

joining the herd

sun rises over our resolve

protect the young

It is sad to think that man is the elephant’s primary predator.  Because of a love for ivory trinkets and slow rates of reproduction, elephants are at risk for extinction.

Today at Poet’s United the prompt is citizenship.

What is our role as a citizen in these times?

#atozchallenge – Canvas Sky

Life's Little Surprises

C.jpg

Bright colors are splattered everywhere

Is that the sun or maybe the moon

What is that flying high

Is that a cow, I wonder how

The meadow is full of lush green grass

I’d like to know why

The cow chose to jump

Instead of wallowing in the rye

Wouldn’t know unless she gave it a try

To reach the colorful canvas of the sky

B is for Blenheim

Caenys Kerr, Author

Blenheim (pron. Blenim) is situated at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand. It is most noted for being the major population centre of the renowned wine growing region of Marlborough. The kids would love a trip down to that part of the country because it meant a ride on the ferry across Cook Strait from Wellington to Picton and then a short half hour drive – and then another ferry ride to get home again. The crossings were not always smooth!

Blenheim’s vineyards thrive
Producing Marlborough’s wines
Happy, sunny days.

A is for…Apocalypse!

A Certain Point of View

Welcome to Day One of your Essential Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.

We all know it’s coming – there’s no point in pretending otherwise. Some have even interpreted the rise of Donald Trump as a herald of the end of days (either that, or a reaction of those feeling disenfranchised by the current status quo against the political classes’ refusal to engage with the issues as they see them, and rallying behind a figure they perceive to be successful, powerful, and speaking their language… or something like that).

Point is, the end is coming, you gotta be prepared, and you ain’t gonna have time to memorise a whole bunch of stuff when it happens.

You need a short guide to surviving the rise of the undead, covering you from A to Z.

You need… Haiku of the Dead.

Apocalypse NOW!
Better run; find food; shelter:
The dead…

Acrostic

Simply Poetry

Hola!!!!

Welcome all to the first day of the A to Z April Challenge and National Poetry Writing MonthAs already revealed,i am blogging this month on the theme Different forms of poetry followed across the world.

So, here comes the first form:

calligraphy-letter-a

The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when read vertically.

Poetry is an art which involves

Obsession with words and their use with

Ease that it creates magic

To whoever indulges in either

Reading or hearing it, and

Yearns for some more
