return ~ free verse

gardens by the bay 2022
return of mad monsoon
face peers out from umbrella
rain pellets drench skin
glee hits soul
flowers sample freshly watered air
breath fogs rear-view mirror
yesterdays rush by
an encore begins

The narcissist ~ an abhanga

This is the only truth
in My opinion
All are in unison
for 'All' is Me

Mindfills for Eugi’s weekly prompt – unison, FOWC – opinion, Colleen Cheesebro’s Tanka Tuesdays – poetry form ~ abhanga

Abhanga, “the completion” is a stanzaic form commonly used for devotional poetic composition although it has also been used for cynicism, satire and reflective moods. It was popular from the 13th thru 17th centuries Marathi Region of India and is described as complex and classic. Abhanga is written in any number of 4-line stanzas with 6-6-6-4 syllables each. L2 and L3 rhyme. The end rhyme scheme is abbc. It is customary to title your poetry.

worshipping winds whisper
fragrance of your being
soul’s symphony stirring
my devotion
