I have been tagged by Juliet Wilson for this. The idea is to do ten verses about me, and then issue the challenge to ten others. As it about writing poetry, I decided to do the meme. This is not in any particular order. Here I take Option Three: Pick Three of Cafe Writing February Project. Pick any three words from: astonished, conclusion, drown, gilded, hands, magnify, snow, time. Also for [Fiction] Friday Challenge: Flip a coin. Heads, and your characters hates Valentine's Day, Tails, and they love it. Now come up with the reason your character feels the way they do.
rock music playing loudly, I drown-
synchronising my steps,
my fingers tap furiously on the keyboard-
I write my dancing thoughts,
giving it a semblance of order
magnified in the form of poetry.
mathematics equates to my line of work
where I interact with children-
goggle eyed to receive knowledge.
green earth attracts, soothes-
earthy browns, mustard yellows
willow in my mind’s vision.
internal dialogues are nothing new
for me. I resolve my problems talking to
myself out of it or into it.
smell of books draw me into a world
so very different from my own-
teaching me so much while doing so.
holding a cup of tea, I savour that aroma-
indulging myself with many a cup
filled with antioxidants, over the day.
my finger rings reflect the rays of the sun-
my only weakness in jewellery;
no other embellishments interest me.
loose tees, many pocketed cargos along
with snickers, is my favourite attire-
comfort being the keyword always.
withdrawing into myself, I like being alone
in my own skin. loneliness is a word
which is not there in my dictionary
spewing disapproval on vulgar display
of love, it matters not a fig, flipping coin
may go either way for valentine!
conclusion in a nutshell is that I lead
a pretty normal, boring life-
wishing for scandals in abundance.
Now the tagging bit! Instead of 10, I am tagging 11!
All my poet/non-poet friends are welcome to do the meme. Remember, you have to write ten things about yourself in verse form!
