• Three Tankas

    February 25, 2010 ishabelle

    As a poet for today’s rally, I want to feature three Tankas. A Tanka is a Japanese type of poem. It consists of five lines. The first and the third lines have five syllables while the rest of the poem has seven. I have already tried Haiku, so I’m giving this a try as well. I hope you guys enjoy. πŸ™‚ The Grave The rose smells so sweet. In her hands, so red, so lush. But the tears that fall…

  • Thursday, Poets, Poems. What More Can You Ask For?

    February 18, 2010 ishabelle

    I am so happy because Jingle, a very talented and friendly poet, awarded me with this. Because of this award, I feel more encouraged to join the rally every Thursday (not that I didn’t like doing so before the award). Jingle has done an amazing job gathering poets together. Because of her, I have met great friends who give me a lot of encouragement with writing poetry. I have met great and talented poets that I have learned to respect.…

  • Seasons (A Collection of Six Haikus)

    February 17, 2010 ishabelle

    I notice that a lot of people are fond of writing Haiku. I, on the other hand, write poems about love and, sometimes, society. I think I have written Some Haiku before, but I don’t know where those poems are. I decided to write a Haiku today, just for the fun of it. I came up with one poem, but I felt like one Haiku was not enough. If I can come up with a 20-line poem anytime, surely, a…

  • The Yummiest Things You Can Do With Chocolate

    February 16, 2010 ishabelle

    It’s two days after Valentine’s now. Maybe this is the best time for me to post these pictures. I love chocolates. Well, second onlyΒ to ice cream, in fact. I can eat them forever, if they were the only food left on earth. I was scouring the internet a coupld of days back when I came across these pictures of delectably tempting chocolates. This inspired me to post a blog entry about chocolates. The pictures are courtesy of Every Stock Photo.…

  • Shakespearean

    February 11, 2010 ishabelle

    Since I am, again, a part of Thursday Poet’s Rally, I came up with this sonnet. This is supposed to be a Shakespearean type of poetry, so I’m including it in my poetry project as well. I’m not sure if I got the poetry right. But I hope you still enjoy this. πŸ™‚ This poem is called “The Writer” because I ran out of titles. I couldn’t think of a good title. I can entertain suggestions, though. πŸ™‚ The Writer…

  • Ballad

    February 9, 2010 ishabelle

    Finally, I am done with my Ballad. I thought I would never get to write this type of poem. I just found it so difficult. But, here I am, ready to post the latest one I just wrote. I know ballads are supposed to be about legends and folk tales. Unfortunately, I could not find any inspiration there. I decided to use a street child as my subject. I have always been partial with poor children. I like children, rich…

  • ABC Poem

    February 8, 2010 ishabelle

    This is my attempt at writing an ABC poem. I am not really sure if I got it right, but here it is anyway. If you like it, then I am really glad that you did. If you think I should revise it, I would appreciate your suggestions. Constructive criticism is very helpful, you know. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I hope you have fun with this. πŸ™‚ For a full list of the other types of poetry that I’ve already tried writing,…

    February 6, 2010 ishabelle

    I wrote this poems because of David Harrison’s challenge. You may want to check his blog through this link. The word for this month is “Road”, so here’s the poem that I made for him. Although this poem was inspired the the word “road”, this one is called “Patience”. Somewhere along that road you will see The footsteps I left behind, so you could follow me. Can’t you see the rocks on the road that I’ve left behind? It’s for…

  • Heart

    February 4, 2010 ishabelle

    Sometimes, I get tired of loving you. It seems as though it’s all I do. Night and day, you’re always on my mind. I really have no idea just why. I don’t know just why I feel this way When I know you’ll never feel the same. You hurt me, and you break my heart. You tear my whole world apart. You don’t know how I hurt inside. But still, you’re never out my mind. Whatever it is that I…
