An old window frame with peeling paint

I look at this old window and wonder.

Did someone see it when it was newer.

Now its  ugly face.

One must replace.

I  bet the new one will  look better.

Poetry,Day Five: Imperfect

Poetic Form: Limerick

An old window frame with peeling paint

This was once a window shiny and bright

Neglect is the reason  it doesn’t look right

It needed some  care

But no one was there

Now  it seems better to remove it from  sight!

Writing 201: Poetry, Day Four: Imperfect, Limerick, Enjambment

Today , write a poem about the imperfect nature of someone or something.

Today’s form: Limerick

Device : Enjambment

Poetry: Imperfect

Brother, you claim, you’re  the picture of perfection

but, you cannot   live up to our expectation,

What good is your claim

when, you put us all   into  shame

Dear brother the picture of perfection!

 

Just the other day, he said, ‘yo, Ranu

your friend, named Banu

you say,is an amazing  girl

I , watched her  fall when she tried to twirl

Your amazing friend Banu!’

 

I kid you not dear brother

your skill, I’d rather

not, bring up

this, your attempt  to balance the cup

broke , was  a poor spectacle, my perfect brother!
