Poetry, Day Seven : Flavor

Poetic Device : Found Poetry


Found words from Tagore’s Gitanjali( A book of poetry)

Found Words: endless, to, I, moment’s, and, off, decked, singing, meditations, journey.

My pursuit for happiness was endless,

Suddenly my journey seemed fruitless.

One moment’s concentration,

Stirred up a realization.

I must try singing,

And then I started writing.

This exposed me to meditations,

My listeners’ said, ‘Congratulations.’

They decked me with garlands,

People from far off islands.

Saying, “Dear poet how sweet is thy journey!”

Today’s form: found poetry

Today’s device: Chiasmus

Theme: Faces

Our Prophet said, “do not live to eat;

It is better if you eat to live.”

It not only makes you healthy,

It saves humanity from hunger.

Sharing food gives us dividends,

Our name is entered,

In the book of good deeds!


When we see hungry faces,

It’s our duty to wipe off those traces.

We were meant to help each other,

So we can live peacefully together!!
