End of Summer Scavenger Hunt (2)

Val of A Different Perspective is running the End of Summer Scavenger Hunt, where we have to write 13 poems in August in the prescribed form on the given topics.

I have already posted the first three, here are the next three.

4. Hay(na)ku on Hate

The
flip side
of my love

5. Naani on Time

What is it
where is it
is it ephemeral, is it eternal
it stops for no one, marching relentlessly

6. Oddquain on Poverty

To
live without
food, shelter, clothing
abased existence worse than
death

End of Summer Scavenger Hunt

Val of A Different Perspective is running the End of Summer Scavenger Hunt, where we have to write 13 poems in August in the prescribed form on the given topics.

I am joining in the fun with three micro poems on the first three topics.

1. Zappai on Drunkenness

so drunk on power
being nice to one and all
such a boring chore

2. Kimo on Jealousy

that green-eyed beast that gnaws at my innards
distorts my vision of self
I burn in living hell

3. Lune on Birth

mind simmers,
creates; gives birth to
poetry
