Paper moon

#TopTweetTuesday

I think of the moon as made of handmade paper with ink spots, so I wrote an #imagistpoem combining this thought and the common theme of forlorn lovers and the moon.

Once a rectangular note
Your love letter
Now distorted;
A crumpled orb
With corners peeking
Like the crescent of a
Paper moon waiting
To come full circle

Lost love

#FromOneLine

One day we’ll meet
Under the Gulmohur tree
Not to find shaded solace
From the dripping summer heat
But to touch its crimson blooms
That carry the flamboyance
Of a forever romance
We’ll stand there at sunset
Fingers entwined, waiting
For that carefree innocence
To slowly rub into our veins
And make our forgetful souls
Remember our lost love again

Fragile

#FromOneLine

She left me waiting
Holding porcelain tears
In my heart so full
It was ready to burst;
Bone china dreams
Brimming with whispers
Of promised togetherness
Now threaten to crack;
With pain throbbing in veins
Heated rage of being alone
Burns me from within,
Staining with fine details
Forlorn thoughts of longing

Kintsugi

Kintsugi is a Japanese word meaning “joined with gold” or “golden seams”

The elegant decay
Of our youthful love
Slowly chipping away
Like well-used crockery
Still a heirloom to be
Preserved until eternity

Happiness is

I created a simple poem for the #prompt #HappinessIs and I really like it. Do you?

Jan 6 #prompt #moonmystic

Happiness is the wisp of a snack
Tangled in a strand of your hair
And how I am allowed
To reach out and brush it away
And see a smile light up your face
