The Hungarian Badriomaku – Departures – August 6, 2015



you turn
looking sad
as the train arrives
stand on your lashes
not wanting to fall
then I hear – All aboard!

farewell kiss
one last long embrace
will bring May flowers
for some – not them
he died on the front.

  1. Love what you did with this form….so very moving! I’m with you on the syllable thing…I much prefer that to meter, which I still don’t understand at all 😛


    • Thanks C.C. … i admit that when I started writing poetry I did quite a few prompts that basically are syllable counts .. even a sonnet though you use meter is actually so many syllables … getting into meter is fun, but in my opinion if you have a sense of rhythm you can write a great sonnet and you’ll probably be using meter even if you just count the syllables … but that’s my opinion.
