An Attempt At Poetry

Haidur!

Today’s post will be rather brief; I’m merely going to post two short poems I wrote. In case any of you wish to know, I fail horribly at writing poems with rhythms and rhymes and all that, so I mostly stick to haikus, cinquains, and the occasional limerick. Anywho, here are two poems I wrote a few months ago.

Beauty: A Cinquain
He sees;
It’s her. She stops.
There’s silence, and then she
Gives him a smile that stays with him–
Beauty.

***
Absolute: A Haiku
It takes a moment–
A smile, touch, a loving act.
Hold it while it lasts
.

Less than three,
Josh

“What is the Absolute? Something that appears to us in fleeting experiences–say, through the gentle smile of a beautiful woman, or even through the warm caring smile of a person who may otherwise seem ugly and rude. In such miraculous but extremely fragile moments, another dimension transpires through our reality. As such, the Absolute is easily corroded; it slips all too easily through our fingers and must be handled as carefully as a butterfly.” –Slavoj Žižek
