Riding: A Ten x Ten Descriptive Poem

And do we find our way from yesterday

Riding forward through time eternally,

Rising up from ashes to make our way

Fast into bright sunrise so carelessly,

Nor in one place do we intend to stay,

For the best of life lies in the seeking

That we continue without any pause,

Riding from day to day without breaking

In what is now our everlasting cause

In an endless love without forsaking

 


Note: Here I have followed a ten-line scheme, with each line containing ten syllables, and with a rhyme scheme of a, b, a, b, a, c, d, c, d, c.  Also, I have written the poem in a creative description of the illustration/artwork. However, I have no name for this form. Suggestions are welcome … unless, of course, this is already a named form! For now I’ve simply called it a Ten x Ten Descriptive.

Day Meets Night to Play

Day meets night while night meets day

To say hello, fare-thee-well as they stray

Across earth and sky so high, so low

In slow rhythm of love above all else

As two children at play with sun, moon

And stars from afar to glitter so soon

Like an exquisite boon from heaven

To leaven the compassion they cherish

Before they perish in the sea of eternity
