We have completed one week of NaPoWriMo today! In keeping with the fact that it’s the seventh day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, we have been challenged to write a poem about luck and fortuitousness. Basically, a poem birthing out of a coincidence/accidental or unexpected happening. A light-hearted one from me this time 🙂
Poem: A Ring at the Beach
Yes! one of those lazy days
to recreate ingenuity
I took to beach as bait
Sun-kissed winds stroked my face
to feel the earth I threw my shoes in space
heat of the sand pushed me to sea
when I felt the pinch of crab under my feet
No crab no starfish, a diamond studded ring
A ring. A ring? A ring!
My imagination had been served
the bait had worked!
A wedding ring gotten with love
for a treacherous who never deserved
argument ensued repealing the wedding
my instincts queered who threw it in sea?
the man himself or the lover who deceived?
My mind ran wild it wasn’t gratified
it churned a new story of fame and glory
the ring was a souvenir of the star that sank
the ring was a gift of her remembrance
for the child she saved at the riverbank
It was all so gloomy
I needed some thrill
the ring must have fallen after a kill
a killer on loose, a body in the sea
now let the cops handle this mystery!
