A Weekful of Poetry ~ 7, 25 Word Poems

1. Fool

Who would you say is the fool?
One who trusted,
And lost a cheater
Or the one who broke the trust,
And lost a keeper.

2. Adulting

To my questions they said, “You’ll understand when you grow up’

I grew up and understood,

It was all a sham,

Because nobody really understands.

3. Blue

A feeling on a day
You’re feeling dull,
The colour of the sky
On a day which is bright
Blue is both wrong and right.

4. Library

My happy place
Is not real
It is somewhere between some pages
But the home of those pieces of paper,
Is my heaven and haven.

5. Balm

There’s one to nourish the chapped lips,

There’s one for the sore nose to heal,

Is there one to soothe and restore the soul too?

6. Never Gone

“Here lays the sole of a writer
Yes, she’s never resting in peace now.”
Repercussions of being an intolerant grammar Nazi
Borne on a tombstone.

7. The Ferris Wheel

A different view for every cabin,
A different sight with each movement,
That ride taught me,
To keep moving,
For presence, progress, and perspective.
