Poetry,Day Ten: Future

Poetic Form : Sonnet

To an infant

An unknown world awaits you, sweet baby,

Then the fast changing world makes you wonder,

Why is everything looking so shabby,

Who’s responsible for this awful blunder!

 

You will think hard to find a solution,

You decide to take matters in your hands,

For this you’ll set the wheels in motion.

Not caring toiling on the  burning sands!

 

You call for help, but there’s no one around,

Exhausted you sit and you feel lost

Suddenly you hear a loud sound,

‘ Stay strong I’ll join you at any cost!’

 

Then you see this awesome guy,

Who says, ‘I told you I’d come by.’

Poetry, Day Ten : Future

Poetic Device : Sonnet

I received a mint plant from a good friend,

I planted it outside so it could grow.

That it’ll survive the winter I didn’t pretend,

Patiently I waited for the spring to know,

If my plant had braved the rough weather,

It stood  tall though it was light as a feather.

……………………………..

Daily I watch its growth and dance in glee,

I tell it, ‘I know you’d hang on for me.’

Meanwhile I notice more mints are spreading,

Sometimes  dogs may trample them I’m dreading.

……………………………………

Some day I’d like to ask the botanist,

If he’d help me because he’s a specialist.

A mint plant to me is very special,

I’ll need it to make my food tasteful!

……………………………….. 🙂

Tomorrow God willing I will not complain,

My toothache will leave and I will be sane.

Time is short there is so much to do,

My tooth hurts how will I chew?

 

I must not procrastinate,

But gather clothes to donate,

I must leave them on my front door,

I hope we won’t have snow anymore.

 

Once I get this chore done,

I will sit and have some fun.

I wish to watch some quality tennis,

My favorite player is Milos Raonic.

 

I hope he can serve his best,

And ends up  scaring all  the rest.

…………………………………..:)

 

My blogger friends day ten is complete,

Won’t you  read my poem before you retreat? 🙂

 

Thanks to the members  of the WordPress team,

For giving us this  marvelous  opportunity to gleam! 🙂

 

 

 

Writing 201:Poetry, Day Ten:Pleasure, Sonnet, Apostrophe

Today’s form: Sonnet

Today’s  Device: Apostrophe

I have struggled hard to write this sonnet since I saw the prompt. I find it very difficult to give up. This morning an email from a friend brought some sad news. I’m sorry I’m not writing this for pleasure of any kind, but something to show our friend we all understand what this loss means to him and us.

To My Friend!

Today our good friend’s world is in disarray.

His dearest son bid goodbye forever!

I don’t know how to  comfort him today.

How can we humans deal with this ever!

 

He truly has been a good friend for long.

I feel lost to know he’s out there suffering.

I wish I could say, “don’t believe this it’s wrong,

He will come back to you happy  smiling.”

 

Life puts us through so many hard exams.

It’s not easy when you are facing it.

So let’s pray my friend can make other plans,

Like spend time  with  his  other kids and not quit.

 

Our children are special we  know it’s true,

I hope none of us,will face this blow too!
