Today we begin Writing 201 – Poetry. I posted two poems. this is my very first Haiku, I hope I got it right.
When pressures gets me hot
Your love Like water
Sweeps over, calling its bluff
Water – your many attributes! Dry and cracked with patterns that make the Sahara look lush Is one who has waited for your appearing Like a forlorn lover checking each shadow to see if it’s got that touch Her gaze to the sun appealing For a drop so refreshing.
Your calmness is deceptive, hiding your depths Your anger burns hotter than a jealous lover As you carry in your wake breaths Homes, histories, landmarks leaving no cover A surge, not refreshing
“You are sweet in a cup” my mummy says The same which assuages thirst For she has seen your wanton ways And acknowledges it not to be your first Like diamond, water has many intrigues © 2015. Imanikingblog. All rights reserved
