Ingenue (short poetry)

For the next prompt of the #augunfiltered challenge, the prompt was Ingenue.

INGENUE is an innocent or unsophisticated young woman, especially in a play or film. Generally a girl or a young woman who is endearingly innocent and wholesome.
Paragon is a person or thing regarded as a perfect example of a particular quality.

Here is my take on it:

She walks like petals on water
Her fragrance lingering
long after she’s gone.
You can see the innocence in her eyes
and the honesty of thought,
The ingenue has an aura
That makes her a paragon.

Serendipitous Smiles (Micropoetry)

One sideways glance
Two barren hearts clink

Overflows with jocund emotion
This moment of unexpected unison.

Infinity is far too long
Forever is an elusive song

A split second smile
Enough to last a lifetime.


Flashback Fridays are for reminiscing! This is from October 17, last year.

Twirl! (short poetry)

Dance a little hon!
Maybe a twirl…
Be free and
See the magic brew!

Life is not all about being uptight. Opening up, and letting yourself free can make you immensely happy. It’s about finding the things outside of your bubble that help you grow! Have a great day. 😄

Here lies…

If you’re looking
for the girl who wrote poetry,
she died. And here she lies,
with a head full of ideas
and a smile brimming with life.
She left her stories behind.
She’ll still be here if you care
In her truest words, in the black and white.


For the prompt: Write 5 lines that would appear on your epitaph. I’m posting daily on Instagram @sv__poetry! I never felt that I was so good to write for my own epitaph. But wanted to be so meta as to do that for the challenge. In our culture, we don’t have burials or epitaphs, which made this even more unique for me. Leave comments about what your preference should be for the words on your stone.

Book Review: The Old Man and the Sea

This Hemingway book is considered a classic fable, because of its hallmark pains and gains story. It revolves around an aged sailor, Santiago. After going 84 days without hooking a decent fish, he sails far out and hooks a 18-foot long swordfish. The battle begins then, and the fish drags the small boat and Santiago far out to sea. For two days this continues, and Santiago wins that battle, but eventually loses the great fish on the way home to the scavenger sharks who find him easy prey. He returns home, and his young apprentice brings him coffee and the football scores that Santiago loves so much and promises to sail with him always.

The Old Man and the Sea is a magnificent story. On one side, it is the tale of a man and a fish, and yet, it is a story of man versus nature, AND, the story of the culture of manhood, courage, bravery in the face of existence. Continue reading “Book Review: The Old Man and the Sea”
