National Poetry Writing Challenge- Day 18 to write a poem that incorporates neologisms. What’s that? Well, it’s a made-up word. It could be a word made from joining two words (portmanteaus) like “motel” from motor and hotel or words that have been invented entirely for their sound.
My neologisms are: a) Bifferent- beautifully different, b) Cifferent- culturally different, c) Rifferent – Royally Different
Here’s my poem for today based on the above neologism
I come from a land that’s bifferent,
A land of snake charmers, a land of farmers,
Where festivals there are, a hundred odd,
And every man has, his own God,
A land of dances diverse, music miscellaneous, A land bifferent.
I come from a land where a billion souls so cifferent,
A land of teachers (gurus), A land of preachers (sadhus),
Where a thousand divergent tongues, come together as one,
Where the young respect the old and where man worships the sun,
A land of superstitions galore, A land of teeming folklore, a land cifferent.
I come from a land of patriots and monarchs rifferent,
A land of colors bright, A land which reveres the white,
Where exalted cows amble on the street, where bedecked elephants stop for a treat,
Where family occupies the highest seat and where neighbors aren’t afraid to greet,
A land of traditions numerous, A land of a past so copious, A land unique, rifferent.
I come from a land that is bifferent, bifferent from all,
A land cifferent, that stands strong and tall,
A land rifferent, that rose after a fall,
I come from a land that’s bifferent, bifferent from all.
