A cold winter night
We enjoy some hot chocolate
Near the warm fire

Leaves blowing in fall.
The calm breeze blowing my hair.
Leaves falling off trees.

The world melts away.
I listen to my music,
And express my mind.

I express all my feelings.
A beautiful poem.

Falling, glistening, dancing
They are all different. icicles Limerick

There once was a young girl named Jill.
She swallowed a fly and grew ill.
She went to a witch,
Who made her eye twitch,
She now lives up on a high hill.

Free Verse

The Meadow
In the meadow,
I lay on the blanket, pouring my heart out with tears.
There sits a basket, full of food, untouched. I’m not hungry, i’m not thirsty.
I get up, and look at the river, flowing gracefully.
I stare, not breaking concentration, and I see my grandpa, with a huge smile.
“Don’t cry,” he said, and then….. vanished, in a second.
A few nights later, he visits me in my dream, with no words.
Just the biggest, and most amazing smile, in the universe.

Eastern Lit + Haiku

...Kabir During the 14th century in India, the Vijayanagar Empire was in power with the Sangama dynasty based in southern India. It was established in 1336 and lasted until 1646, but was on the decline since the 1500s due to losing battles with the military. During the rule of the Vijayanagar Empire, the empire revolutionized the way Hindu temples were constructed architecturally. During this century, according to legend, the mystic poet Kabir was born. Kabir is an Arabic name that means “The Great” which is also the 37th name of God in Islam. No one is sure how he was born, but legend says he was a virgin birth or the son of a Brahman widow. Though, it is known that he was brought up by a muslim family that weaved for a living. In the Indian tradition, Kabir is known to have lived over 120 years, which would be from the late 14th century to the 16th, but others believe that his death occurred in the middle of the 15th century. Another traditional legend about his death was that when he passed away, the Muslims and Indians fought over who got the last rights, because he was raised by muslims, yet lived in India. When they lifted the cloth covering his body, however, they found flowers instead of his body. Kabir was a very important person in Indian history especially with his philosophic ideas. Kabir mixed both Muslim and Indian concepts into his own ideas. He took the Hindu ideas of reincarnation, which is life after death being reborn, and Karma, which is that all of......

...------------------------------------------------- Poetic Forms Template…. BY: Ashley Wells You should approach this assignment from the perspective that you are teaching someone how to write the type of poem that you have selected. That means, defining and providing the characteristics of the type of poetry that you have selected as well as an approach to composing. TYPE: _____Haiku_______The haiku is a Japanese verse in three lines. Line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables. Haiku is a mood poem and it doesn't use any metaphors or similes. Usually when Haiku is taught the students are only given the restriction of the number of lines and syllables. However, for good Haiku poetry, more explanation needs to be given.  | Example of Chosen Poem Form: He brings me flowerstiger lilies, ochre veineddowncast, sleek black cupsBy: Crosbie Lynn | My Original Piece:I am at the house.Of sugar-filed bright flowersPowerful, like home. | Explanation of How Form Affects Theme:This form affects the theme as we are told that the images of the natural world are usually portrayed in these poems. Therefore, many poems in a haiku form would be of the natural world or explaining the natural world. The poems are very short to grasp a short and sweet kind of writing. These poems are a single feeling, meaning that the author can write about only one topic. The poem by Crosbie Lynn is about the tiger lilies that were received in the sleek black flower......

...life is after the dinner dishes are done she may start writing haiku. It initially begins as a hobby but eventually develops into more serious pursuit. Eventually her interest in poetry displaces her husband. Her husband, Rosie’s farther, does not understand her poetry and whom aunt Taka characterized as “a young man of a simple mind”. When a group of other people visit Rosie’s family there is always someone who also writes haiku and the family temporarily splits into two units. One with literary members, which includes Rosie’s mother and another one non-literary that Rosie’s father, has to entertain. Eventually, Rosie’s father gets tired of it and effectively interferes with her pursuit of haiku. He initially makes the family to leave a house of Mrs Hayano because he feel excluded from her conversation hurries his family home. In another episode he “destroys the picture” that Ume received as an award for her writing. Unfortunately, the life of Ume Hanazono lasted “…three months at most”. A part of Rosie’s initiation begins with her mother telling her life story. She explains to her that she was unable to marry a man that she loved when she was in Japan. Had she been completely free to choose she would not have married Rosie’s father. Marriage did not bring happiness to Rosie’s mother. Not only she does not love her husband, but husband takes away even the tiny amount of freedom that she had – to compose haiku. Finally, Rosie promised to her mother that she would never get...

The Japanese Period

...prohibitions of the Japanese regarding any writing in English. The weekly LIWAYWAY was placed under strict surveillance until it was managed by Japanese named Ishiwara.      In other words, Filipino literature was given a break during this period. Many wrote plays, poems, short stories, etc. Topics and themes were often about life in the provinces. A. FILIPINO POETRY DURING THIS PERIOD      The common theme of most poems during the Japanese occupation was nationalism, country, love, and life in the barrios, faith, religion and the arts. Three types of poems emerged during this period. They were: 1. Haiku –a poem of free verse that the Japanese like. It was made up of 17 syllables divided into three lines. The first line had 5 syllables, the second, 7 syllables, and the third, five. The Haiku is allegorical in meaning, is short and covers a wide scope in meaning. 2. Tanaga –like the Haiku, is short but it had measure and rhyme. Each line had 17 syllables and it’s also allegorical in meaning. 3. Karaniwang Anyo (Usual Form) –like those mentioned earlier in the beginning chapters of this book. B. FILIPINO DRAMA DURING THE JAPANESE PERIOD       Many of the plays were reproductions of English plays to Tagalog. The translators were Francisco Soc Rodrigo, Alberto...

...Grasshopper and the Bell Cricket" by Yasunari Kawabata, McGraw Hill, 2004. Twentieth century Japanese writer Yasunari Kawabata's storytelling reveals a distinctly Asian appreciation for detailed simplicity, subtly layered significance, and the gift of shared beauty. Because Asian art developed independently of Western art for hundreds of years, full enjoyment of it demands an understanding of the principles that shape its aesthetic viewpoint. In Asian art, especially that of Japan, there is a cleanness that avoids minimalism. Each detail is important, but need not be elaborated. Woodcut paintings, with scenes framed by a branch of cherry blossoms or the mast of a ship show a perspective trimmed of all superfluity, distilling the beauty. The haiku is an example of this paring down to perfection. Oshima Ryta, wrote in the eighteenth century: All the rains of June: and then one evening, secretly, through the pines, the moon! Kawabata's "The Grasshopper and the Bell Cricket" is written with the same rapt attention and delicate simplicity. He shows us the children and the lanterns on the hillside with gracefully balanced sentences, "The lanterns brought out the shadows of the bushes like dark light. The children crouched eagerly on the slope whenever they heard an insect's voice." Carefully chosen words, like the placement of the a cherry on an orange or the angle of a shrimp flayed on top of a sushi roll, accent rather than overwhelm This instinct for simplicity in detail......

...METAPHOR POEM I am #1 Directions: Write a short poem of at least 6 lines entitled, “I am #1.” Make it look like a poem but do not rhyme it – remember form is meaning. You will be creating a picture in words of yourself (imagery & metaphor). 1. What color are you? 2. What beverage represents you? 3. How do you act in a crowd? 4. What contrast describes you? 5. What chair represents you? 6. What time of day best describes you? 7. What musical instrument best describes you? EXAMPLE: I am a blue bubbling e f f e r v e s c e n t soda-pop. I stand out in the midst of people sparkling brilliantly. A bear grrrowling in the morning mirror… but a cuddly cub purrrring by evening is me. The stars twinkle and shine for me as I gently rock back and forth, back and forth on the front porch swing. My hearts beats like a drum in my chest – THRUMP, THRUMP, THRUMP, keeping time to my own beat. TWO-TONE POEM What color are you? A crazy question, perhaps. Most of us are at least two-tones. Psychologists tell us that certain colors trigger certain feelings or moods in many people. Some colors are “warm” while others are “cool.” Some colors attract attention; others blend in with their surroundings. Our own interpretation of our feelings about colors, a long with our self knowledge can be a good combination to start a “two-tone” poem. EXAMPLE: My Two Colors Part of me is brilliant yellow Lively and......

Barkley's Veto Analysis

...LOUD. He congratulated himself on a fine profound haiku, never mind that the “we” in the middle line was pure fantasy; Brinkley had banged alone. Oh, for a waxed-paper-lined basket of toast-blistered naan glistening with ghee, for a mound of basmati ladled with vindaloo, for a pyramid of gulab jamun. Monday—lunch!—yes. Buoyed by the prospect, Brinkley relaxed his grip on his surfboard and twisted around in search of Erika—here she came, plowing toward him through the choppy wave zone, a rosy-cheeked mermaid ripe for a haiku—just as a claw of foam reared up and cuffed him into the frigid water. Floundering, gagging on brine in the aquatic roar, Brinkley somehow remembered to heed the directional tug of his ankle leash and cover his head to that side, per Erika’s instructions, so as not to get clobbered by his board. “Jeez, man, the thing’s floating right next to you,” came Squiffy’s voice, warbly through the water. “There’s a difference between getting barreled in an eight-foot tube and just falling the fuck off,...

Her writings have become a favorite and popular read in the literary community. Some of her writings have transcended from the written version into screen writings. Drawing from her emotions, Walker’s writings range stem from personal pain, abortion and suicide. er HerAlice Walker writings were influenced by her unusual childhood, her literary mentors, and struggle with self- esteem. Initially, Alice Walker’s writings were influenced by her unusual childhood. Alice Malsenior Walker was born February 9, 1944 in Eatonton, Georgia, to Willie Lee and Minnie Tallulah (Grant) Walker. Walker’s family included five boys and three girls. She was the youngest of her eight siblings (Alice Walker para1). By the time she was eight years old, her family knew she would rather play more exciting games with two of her brothers than spend time playing with her dolls. The children sometimes acted out stories from the westerns. As a little girl, Alice Walker also went through hardships in life. At the age of eight, Walker was accidentally injured by a BB gun shot in her eye by her brother. Her partial blindness caused her to withdraw from normal childhood activities and begin to write poetry to ease her loneliness. She found that writing demanded peace and quiet, but these were difficult things to come by when ten people lived in four rooms....
