Daily Journey Journal #35: something new…pantoum

KiwiBee has made my day! Normally my ranting about poetry forms falls on deaf ears; but she read and attempted and created a poem that makes me think of fairies and summer and icecream; and is altogether great!

Snap Thoughts

Last week I came across a post by Oyinkan Braithwaite at Writing in Whispers about a kind of poem called a Pantoum. Now, I normally do not write poetry, aside from the occasional haiku, but I fell in love with the flow and rhythm of the Pantoum, and so I thought I would give it a try, just for fun. Thank you to Oyinkan for sharing this poetry style with me. It is beautiful!

Goodbye to June

and those first touches

of air thick, like a cacoon

woven from rushes

And those first touches

of sunlight’s warm rays

falling down in the rushes

pulling us into summer days

Sunlight’s warm rays

set flowers blooming

pulling us into summer days

Spring’s entrance unassuming

Set flowers blooming

in air thick, like a cacoon

Spring’s entrance unassuming

and now, we say goodbye to June

Happy last day of June!

KiwiBee
