Blush – Daily Prompt


Eyes that sparkle
Blushing all over
A fluttery stomach
Unable to keep still
Whenever I think of you
My world shines bright
Outburst of the heart

Matang kumikinang
Namumula sa hiya
Wagayway ng tiyan
Hindi mapakali
Tuwing naiisip kita
Ang mundo ko’y lumiwanag
Silakbo ng puso

Give them a wave as you pass them
Watch them admire you like bright gem
A star they think you are cool
Prevent them from being fool
Being famous doesn’t last
Enjoy it and have a blast
Give them a wave as you pass them
Watch them admire you like bright gem

Noise – Daily Prompt


Voice singing many joyful words
So plaintive to see some dark clouds
Primal means from the clouds and birds
In the form of rising mounds shrouds

Without words think of looming gloom
Banal trills coming from the crowds
Cotton clouds bring hope I assume
In the form of rising mounds shrouds

Noise from faraway one can hear
Hope of better days as bright clouds
I see you soon to give me cheer
In the form of rising mounds shrouds

Voice singing many joyful words
In the form of rising mounds shrouds*

* A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.

Grasp – Daily Prompt


O Romeo my Romeo, where art thou?
Come and pluck me from this routine
Your ability to love as you endow
You are my King, I am your Queen
Grasp and use your invisible cloak
I want to flow freely like a stream
Let’s not suffer from heart broke
With great affection and high esteem
Let’s gather our gutsy feeling
List the varied types of strengths
For it’s not every day we feel amazing
Got to go as far as their lengths
Two bodies become one soul
Pure love and devotion to extol

Suddenly – Daily Prompt


She thought she’d be happier when arriving. But when the plane touched down suddenly everything caught up with her again and all she wanted in that instance was being far away again.

“This is the end. Hold your head and count to ten …” The song kept repeating in her head…feel the earth move and then I’m gone… Gone from his life, gone from his dreams, gone from his memories. There were good times and bad times, mostly bad times, but they carried on, tried to make it work. They promised to be there for each other, amidst the hindrance, amidst the frustration, amidst the setbacks. But then how long can they keep it that way? How long can they handle the pain? How long can they live in lies?

Now that she finally made that decision, she wasn’t that happy. She remembered his smiles, his caring and his jokes, sometimes corny, sometimes awkward. She remembered the times he surprised her, thinking he won’t turn up, but then he was there. But then she also remembered their situations, that no matter what, they won’t be one hundred per cent together, that he will never be hers, or her his. Full stop.
