Freedom

Flames of million hearts,
Sung songs with flag of freedom…
N adieu to fallen….

The flag of freedom,
swaying higher in the sky..
An adieu to fallen…

Picture perfect

image

The master nature has painted,
Painted – this picture perfect….
Perfect in all ways and means.
Painted it with gold on the waters still,
Waters still that sink the Sun at dusk,
Waters still painted in silver n gold…
Silver n gold combiñed to speak
The peace n silence in the waters still..

Once I was…

image

I was a river – once flowing freely,
Was a part of the nature lovely…
Through the mountains n plains…
But, I have now become waters still…

From hills to plains I tread paths,
Paths for lives of people of all sorts….
Taking in all their prayers n pains…
But, I have now become waters still…

I have blessing the plains with silt,
Making them fertile, n set for cities built…
Absorbed all the dumps n drains…
But, I have now become waters still…

All my takings made you sick,
To the nature rules you never stick,
Bound me inside the dams n slains…
But, I have now become waters still…

I am the base for your survival,
Respect me and let me follow the trial…
I’m filling myself with rains…
But, I have now become waters still…

A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.

Some popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB.
