heaving hoisted hankering

Poetry is like a hook that apprehends deflowered fishes with its varying wits. The hook is thrown into the ocean of the socitey and it caught informations that inspires the souls to keep writing. Poetry is a garment of many colours that no one is yet to distinguish the type of its colour he's putting on. It takes time, dedication and observation to ascertain the type because these are the regalia of poetry.

She is always on silk
Endowed in glittering stones.

Rusty Year Retiring

weary waves whooshing
hoisted horizons hankering
dark dances drooling
felon fate fostering

Bursting Busty Bruise

waning wits smirked
vying voluptuous verge
meagre mood metamorphose
saucy spell's sauce
