Day 10 of NaPoWriMo Challenge was to write a Portrait Poem. Fortunately this came easier than day 9. No confusion. Clarity abound.
Just 1 person, whose portrait I could draw with my eyes closed, whose presence I feel even when she’s not around, who visits me in my dreams and helps me cross every stream… the Only Woman I Loved with all my heart- My Mom.
Fair is thy visage, ebony black thy eyes,
Sweetness thy nameth, charming thy guise,
Oh thee hath left me high-lone, mine own soft , tend’r heart,
Bleeding gouts of r’d , at which hour thee didst depart.
When she smiled, her eyes did twinkle,
When she laughed, a mellow ripple,
Her hair a dark amber, a rebel curl caressed her cheek,
Wisdom she spread when she parted her lips to speak.
She moved with a flourish, the rustling sound of silk,
Pearl tops donned her ears, she was the gem of her ilk,
Her skin as smooth as marble, her arm my head-rest,
A lioness brave, zealously she guarded her nest,
Many a young mind did she teach, hers and another’s,
Many a lives did she reach, mine and others’,
Magic in her hands, she conjured up a feast,
An enchanting fairy she was, to say last but not the least.
Patience thy virtue, in abundance possess’d,
Kindness thy nameth, showerth the bless’d,
Many a peoples’ woes, in thy bosom, thou b’re,
Spreading happiness from thy secret st’re.
