5th Assignment – Elegy, Fog, Metaphor

Blogging U 201 – Writing Poetry – 5th Assignment – Elegy, Fog, Metaphor

misty morning 2

Elegy of you

 

The veil descends, mutable grey, tangible heartache

Unknown, wrapped alone the shroud tears illusion away

Gently, silver tendrils swirl tenderly, grasp your bright soul

Rising, darkness illuminated dissipates mist, my heart lightens

 

My last memory of you disappears into the fog, quietly

Assignment 2 – Writing 201 – Limerick, Journey, Alliteration

Assignment #2 Blogging U – Writing Poetry 201

I am late with my offering for day two.  I love writing poetry, but it is such a difficult task for me, like pulling teeth. One word at a time.

The assignment was to create a Limerick about a Journey that uses alliteration as a device.   It’s a little weak on alliteration but I think I achieved the idea of a journey and the sense of a limerick.   The Journey is the struggle or the work that is done while meditating to move your mind from chaos to tranquility.

Journey from Chaos to Peace

Once on my cushion, I sit still

To tame the emotions to my will

Dismiss from my mind

Chaos not in line

With the peace I wish to instill.
