Daily Journey Journal #35: something new…pantoum

Last week I came across a post by Oyinkan Braithwaite at Writing in Whispers about a kind of poem called a Pantoum. Now, I normally do not write poetry, aside from the occasional haiku, but I fell in love with the flow and rhythm of the Pantoum, and so I thought I would give it a try, just for fun. Thank you to Oyinkan for sharing this poetry style with me. It is beautiful!

 

Goodbye to June

and those first touches

of air thick, like a cacoon

woven from rushes

 

And those first touches

of sunlight’s warm rays

falling down in the rushes

pulling us into summer days

 

Sunlight’s warm rays

set flowers blooming

pulling us into summer days

Spring’s entrance unassuming

 

Set flowers blooming

in air thick, like a cacoon

Spring’s entrance unassuming

and now, we say goodbye to June

 

Happy last day of June!

  1. Hey! You did the form justice! Really nice. And it is an incredible first time attempt! My first time attempt at the pantoum would NEVER see the light of day. I probably threw it away…
