Writing : Intro to Poetry, Day Four: Journey

 

A long road, running in to the horizon

Enhance your poem with a SIMILE

Our journey felt as warm as the morning sun

The further we went the clouds above spoiled our fun

Still we were optimistic it will change

But unfortunately the heavy clouds

Fell as rain like nature was dropping

Buckets of water.

It was a perfect transformation from

Dry to wet.

We kept our mind cool

Continued  driving like a fool.

But the nightmare continued as our

Car hit something heavy

The gas tank needle turned to empty.

We checked the map to find a gas station

Nothing to worry the man said

The impact bent your tank

We were not quite satisfied

Resumed driving until we reached

Our destination.

I told my husband you liked the color

lemon, well it proved it  really

is as sour as a lemon!

just a poem !

My observation of the fate of the icons!

The black star and the pair of big eyes

Have arrested the icons today,

What will they do with them I say?

those poor icons: the smiley, pizza slice,

Orange sliver and the curious eyes

There is the blue plane ready to take off

With my friendly four

Where will they land

I am not so sure

I do hope they will take care

Of my friendly four!!

Ato Z challenge: Letter V

My little pupil Ben 

Had a Voracious appetite

You can easily tell when

He’d eat two Papa burgers

At a tender age of ten!

 

His round visage

And lovely blue eyes

Sliding about beneath 

their brows

Was a picture of health!

 

Verses he could not memorise

Yet he would Vow day after day

“I would succeed he would say”

He tried in Vain to be Victorious

But his brain refused to co-operate!

April Blog Challenge: Letter ‘U’

 

Rain is falling drip drop

Umbrella is what I need

So I do not get wet

Unnecessarily!

 

Unfortunately

The rain keeps falling

She is unable to go out

The thought makes her uneasy!

 

Unending rain 

Is difficult to bear

Children screaming 

Will expose you to unbearable pain!

 

Mold and mildew

Brought in by the 

Unwelcome rain

Oh it is such a pain!

Ghazal lyrics by Bahadur Shah Zafar singer Mohammed Rafi translated by unknown, posted by Ranu

Lagta nahin hai dil mera ujrhey dayyar mein :My heart has no repose in this despoiled land

Who has ever felt fulfilled in this futile world?

The nightingale complains about neither the sentinel nor the hunter

Fate had decreed imprisonment during the harvest of spring

Tell these longings to go elsewhere

What space is there for them in this besmirched heart

Sitting on a branch of flowers 

The nightingale rejoices

It has strewn thorns in the garden of my heart

I asked for a long life, I received four days

Two passed in desire,two in waiting

The days of life are over

And the evening has fallen

I shall sleep legs outstretched in my tomb

How unfortunate is Zafar !

For his burial 

Not even two yards of land he was granted

In the land of his beloved!
