Friend

Said the sun to the moon,

“Why do you leave me so?

Each morning I rise to watch,

As into the dark you go.”

Wistfully the moon looked back

His lips set in a smile,

For he knew the night had to end

So his Friend could shine his light.

Today’s one word challenge was issued by Tanmay (https://clichedmusings.wordpress.com/)

The word was “friend” so I turned it into a children’s rhyme! Any suggestions on poetry are welcome (please people, I really need help). 

Thank you for reading!


A Union

Here watch the river serene,

her sun kissed veins,

flowing gold.

Watch as she hits the wide expanse,

wave after wave,

of the sea-intense.

I watch her embrace,

her gold lost in his steely grey:

lost was the innocence,

and forth came strength-

Strength of a union age-old.

This is a poem I had penned down years ago. I was sitting on a river-side bench (at the very mouth of the river) at sunset wishing I could draw what was happening before my eyes. Since I’ma terrible artist, I naturally tuned towards words.

Yet again, comments and criticism is welcome. Thank you for reading!

A Stage

This poem was originally meant to be a silly little piece I meant to submit to the college magazine. As soon as my pen touched my notebook though, it spiraled out of  control. Five minutes later this is what I submitted to the editing team.  

Man stands at a stage,

At a stage, where,

A degree defines knowledge

Gifts define love

Body defines beauty

accoutre defines class.

Freedom is a right, yet is lost everyday.

Science says, “Onward!”

Yet fools we stay.

Man stands at a stage,

At a stage, where,

The truth is buried,

The blame is placed,

Each is self-righteous,

Each afraid.

Yet is the bliss of ignorance,

There lies a spark!

A hope for the future, like

A beacon in the dark.

I considered rewriting and refining this, but it’s too late. I’m already attached to this.

Okay! I admit. Poems are not my strongest suit. So anybody with any advice is welcome to leave them in the comments. I’d love to hear it.

Thank you for reading!!
