Daily Prompts: The Sincerest Form of Flattery
Publish a post in the style of a favorite author/blogger or photographer.
I have so many favorite authors I find it difficult to combine their style and make it my own. However that being said let me try Rabindranath Tagore. Although he has written fiction and non fiction, most of his writings that I know of are poetry and song lyrics.
I have translated a number of his poems and song lyrics. I’d like to write a poem using his style.
Maple tree: standing on one leg
Taller than others
Peeping at the sky.
Heart’s desire: pierce through the black clouds,
All at once fly away_
Where will it get the wings.
This is why: Right on top of its head
On its flat leaves
It spreads its wish
In its mind: It thinks the leaves are its wings,
There is no problem flying
Leaving its home.
All day: split split(sound of dripping water)
trembles the leaves,
It feels its flying__
Imagines: It will roam around in the sky
Avoid the stars
As if it will go somewhere.
Afterwards: When the breeze stops
The leaves stop trembling,
Its mind returns ___
The moment it thinks: The earth is its mother,
Loves it again
This world’s corner.
