...A trio of Lanternes
.
glints
of light
oftentimes
pull everything
close
.
close
enough
to the fire
that burns us all
down
.
down
we drift
with our ash
hoping something
glints

...My submission for letter L of the poetic forms journey led by @areadingwriter with fellow travelers, @flightofpoesy, @whiskeyandpens, @thesoulscribbles, and @Iecosymittens, and more poets everyday! Jump in and don't forget to use the tag #ALetterADay.
.
The Lanterne is a shape poem, centered on the page (I did not do this) to resemble the shape of a Japanese lantern. It originated as a nature poem, also called "shaped whimsy", created by 20th century American Lloyd F. Merrell and described in Pathways for a Poet.
.
The foundation of the shape is similar to the Crapsey Cinquain but with fewer syllables per line. The verse form can be found on line at Instant Poems for Kids. It can also be found, spelled Lanturne, at Shadow Poetry.
.
This can also be written in a chain. As with most chained verse since the Ancient Greek Echo Verse, the first word of the last line of the previous stanza becomes the first word of the next stanza.
.
The defining features of the Lanterne are: a pentastich, a poem in 5 lines. syllabic, 1-2-3-4-1 syllables per line is composed with no punctuation and no rhyme, each end-word should be strong. centered on the page. Since this is a concrete or shape poem, the length of the word on the page factors into the equation, syllable count is not enough to determine the selection. title optional.

From @e_a_s_. ...tagged by @littlemissbadraconteur via @g.sanchez_writes for a #TRT #totalreposttuesday #repost ...this is actually 2 poems I wrote a while ago. Sometimes it's all about the self discipline to write it out and not act it out. It's been a set of F%&KING mental days lately.
Livid pt. 1

Bell bangs deep in my being
Nerves roughed and torn asunder
Torrent builds and roils forth
Concussed portions feel its thunder
Travels full bore in act to release
Vibration sounds in concrete bones
Solidity breaches practiced disguise
Chest clogged with howling tones
Veins rage in failing containment
System of pressure gauging at peak
Shivers crack the shaky surface
Mind backs off from a foul reek
Anger and agony make fertile alliance
Intention to strengthen the suffering
Joy and peace deep in the corners
Limits excluded with no buffering
Release arrives with swift motion
Fervor climbs outside its gored skin
Most hide and shun a livid notion
Fermenting more dark festered kin

Livid pt. 2

Body seizes the vile energy
Wraps chains and twists tight wire
Pulls with power and encased
Drags emotion through rancid mire
Straighten limbs and tighten sinew
Grimace draws blood from teeth
Eyes darken from hazel to paste
When done, a wreckage I bequeath
Drive down with legs in a rush
Arms harden and poise for a strike
Step rumbles the space in debris
Painโ€™s warning descends ghostlike
Reason retreats with pitying squeal
Knuckles crush into stoneโ€™s scorn
Fists repeat wearing horrorโ€™s glove
Sensation altered from the norm
The body steals away from reality
Arms pulls back with ready stance
Forward dash with shoulder lead
Charge with roar in furyโ€™s trance
Impact draws out breath and beat
Yet terror is not yet abated
Sliding down on painted wall
Anger still climbs on will deflated
Anguish tries in vain to reignite
As volcanic tears erupt burning off
Frustration denied and wanting more
This body sits as an empty trough

A Platform

A platform for the art of protest.
A rumble in ivory towered walls.
A view of resolve and resistance.
A bullhorn that awakes the enthralled.

Writhe with a mind rightly clenched,
of wrongs in the world, near and far.
Weave artful thought and understanding,
and with liberty kick their doors ajar.

...I was tagged by @whiskeyandpens for a #totalreposttuesday, on Tuesday, but was unable to get the repost app to operate. I was just tagged by @inadvertentheart for a #waybackwednesday, and the app felt better all of a sudden. So I combined the two. Perhaps this post is a #ripintimeandspace kind of post. Personally tearing a hole in time would, perhaps, be beneficial. Consequences smonsequences. ๐Ÿ˜œ
/
I'll tag a few and see who wishes to hitch a ride on the time warp.

Honest Answer - sonnet
.
Will this be wise, I ponder and debate
begin creation of a brave new place
A new locale I deftly recreate
replacing a cobweb enlaced old space
.
The rarest goods lend strength to slats and joists
like peelings from the poor cast of my eyes
some syllables torn free from words unvoiced
and lustre from kisses I've never tried
.
This new residence for healing seems fine
it's peace and quiet with no squeak of floor
The window's view offers only my mind
and the question why must I suffer more
.
The honest answer is as cold as me
I'll suffer only if I fail to see
.

Imagined Questions

The words know of their descendents,
as warm dreamings and dour context.
They're conveyors of rain in my local sky,
and jinns cavorting on too long nights.

The answers to your imagined questions,
are the flies choking on incandescence.
My phrasing windstorms cannot refrain,
from lashing drops of pest filled rain.

In outer climes the letters stay fresh,
read by those of unknown breadth.
The outsiders peruse an imagination,
unaware of a work's true implication.

A Bright Day's Sun

I was stepping wetly,
into and out of,
a salty, broken bottle sand.

I made footstep litter,
to drop on old trademarks,
since they still ignore honorable blood.

I sat with fresh crumbs,
where erosion feasted last night,
upon burnt slick, moonlit branches.

I thought with imagination,
and gazed upon faces in the sand,
and they, in turn, did the same.

We were all amazed, and crave,
what a smile like hers can accomplish,
when a bright day's sun shies away.

Your grace will always be sufficient, Lord. ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Arrived safe at 6:15 today here in Palawan, found a cheap but good hotel to sleep overnight, tried their Chaolong, Palawan's own version of Vietnamese' Noodles and now, finishing my evening drink while on the couch and reading some e-book.

Little Flower
.
Dainty smiles with hopping gait
and giggling eyes whoop surprise
when winged rainbow tickles a nose
as eyes cross and eyebrows rise
.
The fairy winged vibrant fantasy
lands lolling on her flower's face
as a child delights in gentle touch
and wings woven iridescent lace
.
Butterfly's tiny black pearly eyes
see red petal soft ruddy cheeks
and freckled nutmeg pollen flakes
Eyes gleam as the nectar she seeks
.
Child's gleeful sugar drop sight
alights on curious curled tongue
unspooling in soft tasting tickles
A butterfly kiss for the young
.
Breeze fingers toss the child's hair
butterfly glitters off with its fill
of sweets of youth and salt of life
Little Flower becalmed within thrill
.

"Stay alive challenge accepted"

This message was passed to me from @lotusheart.romanisoul. The message is about the hope and endurance of life. The darkest of days are followed by the brightness of stary nights. The dawn will arrive and shine. The view will be worth the struggle through bleak times.
/
Please continue this effort. It can be the little moments that alter a person's viewpoint. A few memorable words may bring a clearer focus to someone in pain.
/
If you write, and help bring greater strength to these efforts, please use the phrases #stayalive , #suicideprevention , #hope, and if possible a black and white theme.

Trying an Horatian Ode for the first time.ย  Research gave me little other than the possible rhyme structure; abab cdecde, of a ten line stanza, and to use meter. I used Iambic pentameter.ย  It seems many odes are long.ย  I used just this one stanza.ย  It's instagram after all. ๐Ÿ˜Š
