Wise Words Wednesday (Nov 27, 2019)

The greatest lovers are like twin blooms, each reflecting the passion and the glory of the other.

I was in a weird funk last week! This week has been almost back to normal. But some things happened that changed so many of my views, for better or for worse. I hate being cryptic here, but the quote should be helpful as a hint. Anyway, A quote about a new love for Wise Words Wednesday. Hope you have a lovely day! 🙂

Softly

Stepping into my heart
Softly scaling the boundaries
Finding our way together.


Flashback Friday and it is Valentine’s Week! This is one of the posts from my daily posting challenge last year on Instagram. Head on over there to read some more fresh pieces that I post almost daily. My account is sv__poetry.

Phoenix Girl (Something You’d Say to an Ex)

I’m slowly chipping away
At the pieces of me you left behind
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix ready to shine.


This was written for the prompt : Something you would say to an Ex. So, this applies to all your ex-friends, family and boyfriends/girlfriends. I’m sure there are all kinds of exes you leave behind, or who left you behind. This can be a motivational post because it would give you the push and inspiration to look ahead and be so much more than the person you were in the past.

Ricochet

Love
Ricochets off
Your stony heart
To leave you wanting
more.


Sometimes that can happen. Initially, the feelings of love don’t affect someone. But later they pine for the same emotions again. Because they feel lonely or unloved. But it’s too late by then.

We had to write an Elfchen on ‘Ricochet’. ricochet – (of a bullet or other projectile) rebound off a surface. Ex: a bullet ricocheted off a nearby wall”

Elfchen is a type of poem of eleven words in a specific format of words per line:

Row 1: one word
Row 2: two words
Row 3: three words
Row 4: four words and
Row 5: one word.

Elf is the German word for eleven. Adding –chen to a noun in German gives it a sense of being wee or dear. The word Elfchen (always capitalized, as are all German nouns) translated into English is roughly elevenie.

Moiety

It doesn’t matter

how many words were unsaid,

Because each moiety of my heart

would love you anyway

With every bated breath!


Moiety means each of two parts into which a thing is or can be divided. Indefinite share or part. For ex: the tax was to be delivered in two pieces.
Bated means eagerly or anxiously.

Bated breath literally means “holding one’s breath. .

The next prompt of #augunfiltered was moiety. I must admit it proved to be a very challenging prompt but the thought in the post is very simple. That even if your heart is broken into a million pieces, each one is capable of love anyway. In fact, it makes your heart and your feelings even bigger when you’ve gone through something tragic. Because you can now recognise the importance of each moment and emotion. Here the person is waiting with bated breath because they are ready to love even with their heart in pieces. It’s not terribly sad, but very inviting. .

All of ME!

Finding a tranquil shore
In the blue of your eyes.

A shadow of the fiery sun
Reflecting in your shade, fireflies.

A home in the burgeoning greens
Where you touched the earth.

As I cede to the divinity
Of your love, and its holy infinity.

Every breath of mine is yours.
Earth water fire air, all four, all of me!

This was first posted on the blog in May 2017. I’m reposting some of my posts because I have a lot more followers now. But, for some reason, WordPress doesn’t seem to want to show my posts to people! Anyway, you can find more of my original poetry on Instagram, Facebook, & Pinterest.
