Poetry 365: What’s In A Year

What’s In A Year - Petrarchan Sonnet

By: Meena Rose

The earth journeyed around the sun
And I pretty much didn’t appreciate
All the stress I had on my plate
Oh, isn’t life just plain fun?
I’ve played with words and forced a pun;
Big and bulky and of great weight;
Tired and weary and full of hate;
I think I’ve found the smoking gun!

The negatives, they will prevail
And let sweat bead upon your brow
And steal the joy out of life;
That’s why you must cut them down to scale
And replenish hope with a solemn vow
And shape you wit with a knife.

Poetry 365: Spring Rising

Spring Rising

By: Meena Rose

It’s been one of those weeks;
You know, where you wonder if your
Life drama was a figment of your
Imagination.

Changes are sweeping;
Discomfort and unrest, a flood rising;
Greece made history – Syriza’s time to soar;
Egypt’s remembrance of its Arab Spring went awry.

Yet, over here there’s been much talk
Of deflated balls and the State of the Union;
Chips, dip and salsa readied for the Superbowl;
What else might happen while we’re distracted?

To be fair, I am not sure and neither
Do I place bets but one thing’s certain;
My spring is upon me and I eagerly ready for life;
Out of the ashes of hurt, I rise.
