What do you See #87- 21 June,2021

Beyond the stroller
a beautiful woman walks
watching the baby

She likes wall painting,
stopped, read ” best gift is you”,
scribbled on the wall.

She looks into her baby
For her, best gift is her only
Daughter: life revolves.

Poetic form : Haiku series. It is a 3 line stanza each having 5/7/5 syllabus count.

What Do You See #86 – June 14, 2021

Alternate rhyme Quadrille

Tired
Walking in dark lanes,
Now, it’s time to fired
the darkness of reigns.

Spreading his rage,
Like a  water hyacinth.
Blooming in a closed cage,
Yet, spread reigns under the plinth.

Spreading prodigiously,
Over the shadow of light
Turning race into viciously
in plight.
