Cinquain – Memories
when you left me
with only memory;
the things which I had shared with you
Today I am taking part in my third poetry marathon, an annual event in which poets from around the world come together writing one poem per hour for 24 hours using a variety of written and visual prompts.
Hour 5 and I ate a late lunch as I pondered this prompt. While the prompt was an interesting challenge, that could have been taken in a number of directions I came to realise I needed my first break and so chose a form I haven’t used for a while ‘The Zanze’, the end result was a somewhat more abstract poem, yet one which continued the theme of forgotten memories which has begun to emerge through the poems so far written today.
Senryu – Remember
Do you remember
me, as I remember you;
your face a shadow.2021©DSCoremans

Tanka – Share With You
I would like to share
the story of my lifetime
but not now, later
when the leaves have fallen down
never more to grow again.2021©DSCoremans
Happy Writing. Stay Safe. Stay Distracted.
