Interpreting Contrasts – in 9 lines for NaPoWriMo


NaPoWriMo Day 9

Lackluster grey roofs preserve stereotype spirits

Breathtaking mountains seek revenge from kindered skies

Sharp paper cuts, sleek, patterned drops of blood

Crumbling, spouting intestines scattered the searing blast

Graffiti walls, salute fallen heroes with bold question scripts

Lacquered posters, address ‘greatness’ in awkward strokes

Golf course weekends, tousled together for work

Wicker bowls in hands, begging favors for food

Mortified glances, isolate the other ;frontiers of pretence, both here and there

I am a management professional by job classification and a work practitioner by personal preference. One poetry collection - Shelling Peanuts and Stringing Words and a chapbook, Crushed Anthills. Always gathering poems, and letting them marinate and change shape and form.

One thought on “Interpreting Contrasts – in 9 lines for NaPoWriMo

  1. Wicker bowls in hand,begging favors for food is indeed a stark reminder to the devotees who
    Live under the illusion that ” Dhoop” and “incense offerings ” at religious places are a substitute
    for hard work But this is perhaps only an interpretation of the reader.
    Actually the poet has beautifully depicted the Contrasts — interpretations of contrastsis is left to the readers
    You are a genius my child What a use of words to express feelings of sensitive soul God be with you
