A Poem A Day – This Ocean Knows


“Individually, we are one drop.
Together, we are an Ocean.” 
― Arshdeep Singh Samrala

This ocean knows

                                                   the secrets of my soul

I wonder where they all will go

                                                    raging by the gusty wind

                                     the waves roll in

a soothing sound

                                A white blanket of froth forms;

                                                                A sense of nostalgia gushes through my body;

Peace surrounds me again

Intimate and majestic

Pure, Tranquil , Mindful

all fears

disappear.

The ocean whispers

                                                                                              confidentially,

                                                                                     “Your secrets are safe, my dear.”

ONOMATOPOEIAS!

 

Here is an example of an onomatopoeia poem. I invite you to write one for Poem In Your Pocket Day.

Running Water

water plops into pond

splish-splash downhill

warbling magpies in tree

trilling, melodic thrill

 

whoosh, passing breeze

flags flutter and flap

frog croaks, bird whistles

babbling bubbles from tap

*This poem is by Lee Emmett from Australia

 

 

Loving Words


Wordle: The Paradise of words

Words are so important. They can rise you up or bring you down to the lowest point ever. They have always captivated me. I cannot let one word go by unnoticed just because I do not know its meaning.

I especially like the ones with soft, sweet sounds. The words that melt your heart. This is why i am proposing a challenge starting today until January 31st. Make a list of the sweetest sounding words you have ever heard. Use the hashtag #lovingwords@poemattic.com.

Let us remember the power of words. Let us use words wisely and make them resonate for the good of humanity.

Confusion


“Lack of understanding; uncertainty,”

is the dictionary definition.

I can only express my rendition

with a mosaic of curved lines

which I myself cannot understand.

Cause I envision

Peace.

But really all there is, is division.

Cause I dream

of a new idealism,

full of optimism,

perhaps a neologism

like neo-spirtualism,

everyone understanding

that prolonged confusion

cannot continue

cannot continue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good Day Sunshine


After a full day of snow and the cloudy and damp weather, everyone welcomes the sunshine.

To measure off another day

For an approving God.”

– Emily Dickinson

Good Day Sunshine

So many have had something to say about you

whether you were on the rise in the morning

or falling into deep slumber in the evening

I like you best at morn

when you so well adorn

the sky and make me want to sigh.

A Found Poem –


The following poem is composed of my lines and lines from other poems I found on WordPress. I have included the attributions at the end.

Soft promises made

By hidden thoughts

Only I could see

 

I know you love the ocean

And the magic of its waves

You see at the distance  

a rowboat sway in peace

And nature whispers in the dark –

How much the earth loves you back

 

A super moon appears

To light the way

And if

If you want to keep a secret

And keep it well

Then I will tell

The world

Miracles are real.
