FC: Maggie's Poetry Portfolio | Writer's Craft | Ms. De Sousa
1: Thanks Ms. De Sousa for all your help and your teaching!
2: Swaying, slowly, back and forth Row of straight white pearls gleam white Light reflects from her beaded forehead Amidst the plastered strands of hair Tired brown eyes adorned, fixated On unopened slits, yet to see The world, its beauty, its pain And the endless possibilities. | New Life | Imagistic
3: Life's Liquid | A Concrete Poem
4: A Wizened Fool | The yearn to fight for fierce opposition From the stagnancy of status quo Some argue 'reality' of the human condition Nothing will change, you're told. | Pantoum | From the stagnancy of status quo Comes binding of society's chains Nothing will change, you're told The animals can never be tamed
5: From the binding of society's chains Collective in Will and desire The animals can never be tamed With any attempt, the foolish will tire | Collective in will and desire Some argue 'reality' of the human condition With any attempt, the foolish will tire The yearn to fight with fierce opposition
6: Words are so limited and vague Interpreted, emotionally plagued Whether sang or spoken Dreamt or awoken They’re hidden in the masquerade | Actions Speak Louder | Limerick
7: Eternally Here | Quatrain | Over windshields, under wings Brought by wind and waters too Millenniums pass, still lingering Through gills and lungs, just passing through.
