Diversity~Writing 201 Course Day 6

Beautiful Faces.
Beautiful Faces.

Misgivings as to our oneness

The oneness of our misgivings 

Is it our purpose to be one

Is it our one purpose

The law of God says we are united

United we are in the law of God 

Aiming to be connected in our diversity

Our diversity aiming to connect us 

The ultimate reality that we are one.

We are in the ultimate reality, one.

Our faces attest to this truth

This truth attests in our faces

Especially seen in the children

The children are especially seen

The Prompt:

Faces

The Form:

Found Poetry

“Remember that staple of kindergarden arts, the collage? Found poetry, today’s optional form, is the language-based variety. Like a blackmail letter in a sordid crime novel, a found poem is made up of words and letters others have created. It’s up to you, the poet, to find them (hence the name), extract them, and rejig them into something else: your poem.”

The Device:

Chiasmus

“…chiasmus is essentially a reversal, an inverted crossing (it got its name from the greek letter chi – X). How can we use it? Let Snoop Dogg show us the way:

‘Laid back, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind'”

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
