Troubling Beauty

Threaded wet flowers,
are her tuft hair.

Holding a trickling pot,
a floral drape around her hip.

Will she turn or not ?
a troubling question, so cute.

Her ignorant sedentary stance,
holds his breath.

Hi Hari. Sweet poem. I like how the girl is not aware of the boy's presence. The first two stanzas is like how the boy looks at the girl. Thanks for sharing.

Nice work Hari. Your poetry is unique and in few words you you can cause the mind to ponder. I really like this poem.

I thought of many different visions as I read this piece. I think it is a woman who is beautiful and the man is watching, hoping she will turn. I liked your poetry Hari...

Eric,

It think this would come under prose poetry, however, I write quite randomly and don't go by the rules. I would also suggest you can do the same to start with. :-)

I will share you some content on poetry writing if you want. Share me ur email id. :-)

Hari I am trying to learn about poetry. What is this style called? Where can I learn more? Of course in my studying I will visit where you post to get the fee.

I endorse what your mom said Eric. Thanks for the appreciation.

Your lines are so bubbly like a nursery rhyme. Loved it.

Thanks.

So cool.

My mom told me, probably around '64, to trust a man of few words too much talk is hot air rising before it warms us. I love your messages.

(here is a funny one kind of close - My son and I tried to sew a Hibiscus and rose lay for our neighbor. It was horrible)
