I was doing some research, and suddenly the Goddess Freyja called to my muse. This is a fun way to write a poem. I used the word, hunt for search, and the word past for lost, as part of my Tanka Tuesday syllabic poetry challenge. This poem will work for my poem-a-day April challenge and NaPoWritMo, as well.
One of my favorite Twitter hashtags is #FolkloreThursday. If you love anything paranormal or mythological… including faeries, check out the posts on Twitter. I hope they understand that the syllables and word choice limited my poem.
It’s day 14 of NaPoWritMo and my Poem-a-Day practice. I’m sure you’re tired of seeing these white pear tree blossoms, but they are so spectacular. My camera does not do them justice. I think I caught a faery glimmer in the trees. Do you see it?
When I wake up in the morning, one of the first things I do, after I kiss my husband good morning, is to grab a cup of coffee. Then, I go to Facebook to see what lovely photo Merril D. Smith has shared for the day.
Today’s photo was spectacular! I was so inspired I had to write this abhanga poem. This is an Indian syllabic form written in a 6-6-6-4 syllable count with an end scheme of x, a, a, x, where x is unrhymed.
Well… I blew it! I missed yesterday for my Poem-a-Day practice along with NaPoWritMo. But I have the best excuse. It was a beautiful day, and I spent much of it outside with my husband enjoying the weather. Sometimes it’s better to live in the moment. So, I offer two haiku today to catch up.
My neighborhood has exploded with blossoms! My friend Ruth looked up what kind of tree this is… (I did not know). Apparently, it’s a Bradford Pear. These lovely trees line each side of the street.
Spring has found its way to Michigan… The temperature hit 80 degrees F. today. Yet, the clouds are rolling in. Rain is on the way… it matches my mood. A dear friend’s husband lost his battle to cancer today. Like the spring rain, my tears fall at the loss of another gentle soul. May he rest in everlasting peace.
