NaPoWriMo – Badriomaku – April 8, 2016

Old cemetary

In Passing

feelings
receding facts
lost old horizons
death
removed the fever
of my feelings
now I am – numb.

Six months have passed since my husband died in a fatal accident.  The strange thing about sudden death is that it leaves you feeling that everything is some sort of joke.  That you’ll turn around and your loved one will be there giggling at you for having been so silly to fall for it.  Only that never happens.

Life continues in its everyday normalcy leaving things hanging like a broken spider web floating in the wind.  Unresolved problems, unresolved actions.  Sometimes out of the blue one of those problems will pop out … and you fall into a memory hole.  Like today, when the new furnace went on the blink again.  Ciao, Bastet.

Words:  feelings, facts, receding, horizon, fever, numb

With a syllable count of 2-3-5-1-5-4-5, the Hungarian Badriomaku is interesting in that it gives you a structure that doesn’t fit any preconceived ideas.

I was introduced to this form by Graeme. Thanks, Graeme!

1sojournal – NaPoWriMo: Day 7

 

Brynn, Brynn – Manx(u) – August 7, 2015

I’m exploring … I still don’t have oodles of time, but I was introduced to this fav blog … Graeme Sandford – Guilty of Rhymes of Passion yesterday through several different people and found myself fascinated! Below is a poetry formed called  the Manx(u) form, an invented form which is an ode to cats with a 2, 2, 1, 6, 1, 4, ! syllable count (ending with “!”) introduced to him by Jane at Jane’s Musing … and yes Virginia … haiku poets often add ku or u to existing or new poetic forms 😉

composed
she sits
and
with a plaintive meow
says:
now, where’s the fish
