NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 24

Happy Tuesday! I keep telling myself that I haven’t run out of words, that I will never run out of words! It has been a constant chant in my head to keep me going. With six more days left in this poetry challenge, I know I can make it! I have to make it! So… Here is a nice serving of hay(na)ku for you! It is a poetry form that is similar to haiku, but has no syllable restrictions. The form goes like this: The first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. Hay(na)ku can be written as multi-verse poems. Enjoy!

Revival

Ravaged

battered and

bruised beyond measure

 

 

Spoiled

tarnished, blackened

deformed and deranged

 

 

Once

filled with

color, vitality, goodness

 

 

Providing

flavorful fun

making days bright

 

 

Essence

of life

sun’s favorite son

 

 

You

now lay

down and out

 

 

Discarded

and tossed

to the side

 

 

No

one wants

you anymore ever

 

 

But

I weep

over your deterioration

 

 

So

I’ll take

pity on you

 

 

Please

ring these

up for me

 

 

I

tell the

grocery store cashier

 

 

Really?

She asks

Yes, I know

 

 

They

are in

bad shape, but

 

 

I

refuse to

see fruit die

 

 

Nature’s

life source

should be loved

    Awe, I get all sad over that kind of death too!!! Like when the kids take one bite and trash it…Lovely words.

  6. Oh, so very clever! I would have never guessed fruit until you revealed the answer. Well done!

  7. It is isn’t it Sulekha? I’ve been having fun learning about all the different poetry forms in this challenge. I haven’t taken them all on, but I will definitely use them in the future!
    Thanks Janaki!
    Awww, thanks Rimly!
    I so agree dear Andy! Thank you!
    LOL! I know! I do too Jan. What a waste. There is an ice cream maker that you can use to make frozen treats out of over ripened bananas and other fruit. It’s called Yonanas: http://www.yonanas.com 🙂
    Thanks Martha! I miss your words. I need to make my way over to your blog this week!
