To my love, Mr. Thesaurus

When fractious clouds of uncertainty bellow and roar
then quivering counsel timidly whispers and disappears

My heart, in dissonance with my mind, rip-roaringly points at you
I surrender in peace to the vociferous clamour

You are the microcosm of all the learning that is there
The minder of words, the doubt-tamer guiding me forever

Your dulcet tones are poetic melodies to my eyes
Euphonious tonality smoothening harsh edges

Words gurgle happily as I turn the pages
Sometimes yelling capitally to attract my attention

I beseech them to prettily embellish my writing
They intone lazily it is banal and too simple!

  1. Ah, but in your wonderful tribute I did notice some discord….! “My heart, in dissonance with my mind, rip-roaringly points at you
    I surrender”…..alright, I misquote slightly, I left out “in peace”…however, in your poem that flows otherwise so nicely, I call that a subtle note of protest!

      1. Oh dear! Well I thought it was brilliant, just the slightest hint of a suggestion of a note of disagreement…and it fit so well, is honestly sways a delight to read your poetry.

      1. I have Followed–but my reluctance is because I can’t possibly read all the fine authors’ posts, and because I can’t do all the prompts. It’s only because I faithfully follow you that I know what’s going on in the blog world 🙂 🙂

      2. You can respond whenever you want to and read as many as you can…there is no compulsion as such.
        You are very kind to follow me but there is a lot going on in the blog world that even I am not aware of.

  2. what a fitting magnanimous tribute to our true love sis, bravo!

    I’ve only had a small travelling one but since settling I spotted the perfect huge volume at a Church fete. As I was paying the lady for it, she said you will get some great stories and real characters from this thick book! I smiled, she had no idea …

  3. Love this especially; “Your dulcet tones are poetic melodies to my eyes/Euphonious tonality smoothening harsh edges.” You rocked the prompt, Punam 😀
