Poem By Carmina Abrenica

Metamorphosed butterfly
In your palm is where it lies
One rainy Sunday afternoon
In an eye's blink, it flew too soon

Over the rainbows
Under the bridge
Atop a sea wave
Beneath a land anew
Chasing it in clouds of blue

Lost in the meadows of a lonely soul
Hidden in the shadows of despair
Keen is the observer's scope
Through the narrow tunnel of hope

Written in the lonely sky
Is its desire to freely fly
Its plea is its loudest cry
The wing's strokes drawing goodbye

Landed in a world built for two
A home is what it found
The place had chosen you, butterfly
Be calm and rest as you let your tears dry
The sun is givin you a day you'll again fly

Comments about Cynthia

" The sun is givin you a day you'll again fly" i assume " givin" above means " giving" / " givin' " . i like the poem enough. :) i like the variable rhyme 'scheme'. bri :)
Carmina, if you're going to write rhyming, formal poems like this, you need to study them. Poetic Meter and Poetic Form by Paul Fussell is a good book to look at. Also, maybe read Elizabeth Bishop and some other good formal poets. If you have time, check out my new website: Tell me how you like it. Yrs, JC

Once There Was A Friend

Here's to the friends I got along
In a time with the notion we belong
To the pages we shared for long
All ended up with a painful song

The Gesture

Your hazel eyes in luster
Enraptures my every stare
The echo of your laughter
A zephyr I listen to so rare

The Call

The pink-tinged cloud thwart the sea
Gestured hope from a promising plea
The grain of sand I felt as I walked t'wards thr shore
Tickled a wish that I may be with the one I adore

Let Me Be

Let me be your cup of coffee
You delight in every single day
Making you perpetually happy
Giving your gentle heart a sway

Thinking Of You

I think of you wherever I go
As the wind shall sweetly blow
I miss you, and we both know
My heart fonder it will grow

In The Heart Of The Sea

Our eyes sparkled
As the sea rippled
We walked hand in hand
Barefoot on the sand
