Fragile (a haiku trio)

Volatile Temper

Quick to spark outrage,

But quicker to forgiveness;

How quick her heart moves!

Good Memory

Remembers love well,

But remembers pain longer;

How she remembers!

Chaotic Consciousness

Takes hard to chase dreams,

But takes harder to wake up;

How hard she takes life!

Inverted

A bow made of colors

A rainbow

Carried by the drops of rain

Displayed across the sky

Inverted

A bow made of comfort

A smile

Carries the drops of tears

Displayed on a face

If a smile would do

Let me smile for you.

Timestamps (a haiku sextet)

Fog

Blanket wrap of mist

Lasting embrace of the clouds

Ere parting with earth

Dewdrops

Soothing crystal drops

Tearful kisses of the night

As darkness departs

Sunlight

Bounded by nothing

Sends warmth across time and space

Its presence made known

Moonlight

A bright reminder

That as the world turns away

It's never forsaken

Horizon

Immortally drawn

The line of separation

And the place to meet

Sand

Canvas of the sea

Carpet walk till waves return

Everything in place

Draught of Drought

Empty cups, chipped and stained 

Running out of sanded grains

The heat's still felt on porcelains

No water 'cept for salted rain

Clouds of smoke from constant sighs

Aroma caught and memorized

Stirring's playful notes reprised

On pulse's rhythmic fall and rise

Dream-made drink immersed the head

Sips of beauty, dewdrops shed

Brimming over, senses bled

Longings tasted, flowed and spread

Unceasing thoughts, hearts so bold

Flared to brace up for the cold

Till time allows firm hands to hold

Warmer days than those of old

Write a piece on any theme or subject in any format you like with only one proviso - it must be written with the express intent and purpose to be read aloud - so rhythm, sound, cadence, meter (yes even in a prose piece) are what are important here. Use punctuation as it is meant to be used, to inform the reader of short breaks (commas and semi-colons) or longer breaks (full stops). Use sentence or line length to dictate pace. Think about the sound of the words. Have fun. Tag Me
Written by poeticasymptote in portal Spoken Word

Woes

woe is me! woe is me!

trapped within the dungeons

of my own 

obtuse assembly

set thyself free, saith thee.

aye, aye, fair’s thy word!

indeed, if need be,

if I be free

the cage enslaves another

breath of life from me

woe is thee! woe is thee!

doors be open

they long have been!

doors be closed

I have the key!

why stay, why stay

with a hundred ports at bay?

nay, nay!

the boat sinks

dents on wood

holes forsook

nay, nay!

not the lack of gates

nor ports, not doors

’tis what it is

inside the cracked walls

immortal, un-whole,

a gripping hold

deprave me! punish me!

indulge thy tainted floors

wherefore this agony

locked in incredulity

of a light that refuses

to be known?

flee! flee! saith thee

as roses fade

as moments cleared

of morning memories overlaid

with silk and laced

with greyest smoke

all hid and cloaked

woe is me! woe is thee!

trapped within the dungeons

of worlds begotten

by tears, and pens, and keys

no road be free from thieves

till all words writ be captive

till one last breath

is lost from me.

(Disclaimer: This piece was written a while back and I thought it might fit into the challenge. I have no idea how to write spoken verse so yeah, feedbacks welcome. Thanks!)

Turned on

That strange light of yours

That so brightens up a room

That you're all I see

It is

getting lost

and never

wanting to be found

again

or

being found

and never

wanting to get lost

again

both.

Put a smile back on my faces, my darlings. Invite laughter back into my days, one write at a time. Create a poem or story of any length with an element of nature as the central character. At the heart of this tree's, cloud's, tree frog's (your story, your chose of anything under the sun or beyond it) story or poem, a profound epiphany is revealed.

Grape's Grief

when my sore feet's done treading on the accursed vine

to find, underneath, my heart’s bathing in its own wine

will each sacred drop of crushed fruit, the fermented pain

mine partaken, be it ever flowing through my veins

The Pi challenge. Pi day (3.14 March 14) is just around the corner and I would like you to write a micropoem with a 3-word title and consists of exactly 14 lines. The poem must be about pies or pi! Make me irrationally hungry! (15-92 words)
Written by poeticasymptote in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Life of Pi

Irrationally in, all in

Transcending, sequencing

Numbers in, stories in

belonging, growing

Listening in, living in

Realized dream, daydreaming

Really in, wholly in

All places between

Infinitely in, digits in

Rhythm, order, spelling

Rhyming in, singing in

Dazzling, breathtaking, looping

Cornered in, pulled in

Meaningfully confusing string

The Road Less Traveled

is not necessarily the narrow one

depends more on who's traveling

whether they're on a ride

or on foot

who's greater or lesser in number

is a relative term

how many

rist-takers

the adventurers,

the easygoing

the always early,

the always late

the conscientious,

the spontaneous,

the surefooted,

the clumsy,

the ambitious,

the dreary

and the like

are there?

could be anyone, anyhow

could be anywhere

what you choose—how unique

to you it is—

that makes all the difference
