OctPoWriMo Day 20 (Amberous Light) – Trimeric – October 20, 2015

Amberous Glow

in a cavern an amberous light
shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
chilling whispers echo all around
reminding me of lives long gone

shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
the cold dank cavern came alive again
as here a battle rages and men meet their death

chilling whispers echo all around
lamenting the shortness of life and love
all wasted for a king’s avidity and his “noble”  cause

reminding me of lives long gone
this place lies hidden – haunted by useless war
but no noble king or sultan ever shudders – now or then

How Vibrant These Colours Seem – Trimeric – October 9, 2015

houses

How vibrant these colours seem
the red roof tiles glisten
the changing leaves are brighter
in the rain of this new day

the red roof tiles glisten
with intense rich ruddy tones
glazed in light and water

the changing leaves are brighter
nature, the great impressionist
creates her early autumn oeuvre

in the rain of this new day
pastel brush strokes blossom
in the tenuous light of dawn

Autumn Rain – Trimeric Poem – September 24, 2015

The couple

but now the rains begin to fall
soulful – autumn winds howl
mourning the passing of another summer
he laments his passing youth

soulful – autumn winds howl
the trees shudder in their anger
and bend before their might

mourning the passing of another summer
he sits in a pathetic funk
apparently sedate – apparently sedate

he laments his passing youth
he’s taken by a righteous rage
but nothing changes – except the leaves

i just discovered this lovely form this morning  (it’s called the Trimeric) on Two Paise Poetry … who learnt it from Darklight Harbor  and wanted to try it out immediately. The Trimeric was created by Dr. Charles A. Stone and here’s how it works:

a four stanza poem in which the first stanza has four lines and the last three stanzas have three lines each, with the first line of each repeating the respective line of the first stanza. The sequence of lines, then, is abcd, b – -, c – -, d – -.

I also used the words from Three Word Wednesday – pathetic, sedate and righteous.
