For Thee, I Pray : Cuarteto

Happiness, feelings, time running in my veins,
threads of winds bringing luck, harmony and peace,
all this I wish flows from my life towards you and rains,
drenches you with smile and all your troubles recede.

Every colourful shade, life’s meaningful gist,
emotional purple, nature’s colour jade,
I pray for thee, my love, from heart and spirit,
and into the mist I fade, into the mist I fade.

The Cuarteto is:
• stanzaic, a poem made up of any number of quatrains.
• syllabic, hendecasyllabic (11 syllable) lines.
• rhymed, either abab or abba rhyme scheme.

  4. Wonderful to find a way for one's troubles to recede! I like the form of your poem, Vandana.

  5. I love specially the last refraining line ~ Good work Vandana ~

  6. Thats' beautifully written.

    PS. I don't want to be a mood-killer. And it is totally my opinion. The post text color is quite difficult to read and small. I apologise if you weren't open for advices.

  7. Very evocative poem...like the ending very much - fading into the mist.

  8. Vandana... this is so beautifully written... what lovely words you have created and written... xox
