I completely forgot to check the picture in Creative Writing Ink last Monday, July 18. A post by my friend, Wulan, reminded me of it.
The picture form July 18 was so beautiful and sad, I am so intrigued to write something. I thought a story from a poem will do justice to the picture instead of a short story.
Here is the picture and the poem:
and yet, not entirely
Where is everybody
I look down from the highest place
I feel at ease
but sadness in in my eyes
The blue sky is peaceful
but the orange land is frightful
Something had happened when I fell down the rabbit hole
Has the earth paid her revenge toward the ignorant human-troll
They have brain and yet they keep hurting her soul
Am I the only human now?
You might see my attempt of trying to make it rhyme. Though, I think it was not a good rhyme…please correct me if you think the rhyme is off. Poem is really a new thing for me.
I challenged my self by doing 2 pictures at once and still have connection (hopefully). This is the picture from July 25. I stopped trying to rhyme now…too tiring
I walk and walk a thousand steps
but trees and animals are all I see
A soundtrack of loneliness is in my head
I hum along to cheer my heart
A hopping bunny is my only friend
hop and hop I follow him
A sea is where he leads me to
as blue as the peaceful sky above my head
The roaring sea deafen my ears
but the the light in the castle blinded my eyes
Is there someone behind the light?
Do share your worst opinion about these 2 poems, I need it to improve my self. Thank you so much
