As You Float Away

fb_img_1463051545539

I see you as you drift
In the light of the mist
If only the sea talks

The secret behind this
So I can be a part
I see you as you drift

I want to share with you
To be part of your world
In the light of the mist

And as you float away
Birds sing, trees sway, lake glides
If only the sea talks

Fly Away

– Paulix8
– Paulix8

I long to fly in the sky
To soar up the cliffs with the others
Free me from the bondage of poverty
Rift the cage so I can get out to freedom
Cart me out to a world where I’m welcome
Free me from hunger as seen from my rickety legs
I’m all flesh and bones, so please give me some bread
I’m baffled – why can’t I be just like any ordinary child?
The absence of responsibilities, worries and hardship
To be able to sustain a world full of innocence and fun
Being able to chatter instead of stuttering in fright
Give me love and I can understand that in any language

RAVEN

Fly away, fly away
I’m always on my way
This way, that way, it doesn’t matter
What’s important is I’m basically very able
To try one thing and if it doesn’t work
I’ll try something else and do more legwork
Until I find one that works and I’m satisfied
The trial and error gives me a sense of pride
I know this attitude can get me worldwide
As well as it keeps me occupied
Always an adventure I’m after
Some questions to answer
What’s on the other side?
I’ll go and find my guide
So fly away, fly away
On such a lovely day

I See You As You Drift

Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C

I see you as you drift
In the light of the mist
If only the lake talks

The secret behind this
So I can be a part
I see you as you drift

I want to share with you
To be part of your world
In the light of the mist

And as you float away
Birds sing, trees sway, lake glides
If only the lake talks

It’s nice to go with the flow
As long as the wind blows
Take whatever they throw
Life is full of lovely prose

Sometimes I have to go against the wind
Out the frame I climbed, down the pipe I shinned
All this adventure I went through
Perhaps that’s how each of us grew

Sunshine

scissors-1170232

Fear not, my sweet one
For it always come, the sun
Cut the vicious line before it spreads
The red threads and all the eggheads
Don’t crease the scheme, might be useful
If you don’t do it now, you won’t be able
The lure of the flood of stream coming
And then looking forward to spring
The fact is, we don’t have to follow any line
It’s up to us to have our own sunshine
