Features of Owls

Owl, found in most regions on earth except Antarctica
they are carnivorous, birds of prey, hunting mammals
their face has large forward-facing eyes and ear holes
Most birds of prey have eyes on the side of the head

they are carnivorous, birds of prey, hunting mammals
they must turn their entire head to change their view
Most birds of prey have eyes on the side of the head
A flat face with a hawk-like beak and farsighted eyes

they must turn their entire head to change their view
having farsighted vision working well in low light times
A flat face with a hawk-like beak and farsighted eyes
their feather adaption gives the ability to fly almost silently

having farsighted vision working well in low light times
fourteen neck vertebrae make their neck more flexible
their feather adaption gives the ability to fly almost silently
feathers not waterproof, wet weather struggle to survive

How to write Pantoum Poetry:

Line 1

Line 2

Line 3

Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2)

Line 6

Line 7 (repeat of line 4)

Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanza, then repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.

Last stanza:

Line 2 of the previous stanza

Line 3 of the first stanza

Line 4 of the previous stanza

Line 1 of the first stanza

Bees Shadorma Poem

honey bees
manuka honey
sweet healthy,
working bees
always faithful to the queen
feeding the larva

serve the queen
pollinating plants
beekeeping
extinction
because of global warming
it is predicted

Shadorma Poetry is a Spanish poetic form.
A poem of six lines 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables no set rhyme scheme.
It can have many stanzas, as long as each follows the meter.

Interesting NoteThe sex of a bee is determined by whether or not the egg is fertilized; after mating, a female stores the sperm, and determines which sex is required at the time each individual egg is laid, fertilized eggs producing female offspring and unfertilized eggs, males.

words will go no further so no worries
true happiness
not for me
the guilt
sad

Artistic Autumn

spots
bubbles

a view matching fantasy

almost take it for a thin hairnet
maybe it would color my long grey hair

Crowded Mall alone

walking in a crowded mall of people
so many strange humans around me
wondering where they are going
hope I find an exit soon
at least, someone, I know
hardly controlling
panic within
tears are close
please help
me.

Autumn a Season of Golden Hues

autumn baptizes the ground with crisp golden leaves
the air is fresh, chilling and wild with moving leaves
a season of bright golden reds and yellow hues
a few weeks of exciting scenes of color enrichment

the air is fresh, chilling and wild with moving leaves
every leaf speaks as it flutters gently from its branch
a few weeks of exciting scenes of color enrichment
enriching the cool ground for regrowth in the spring

every leaf speaks as it flutters gently from its branch
all the smell of decaying leaves and slippery paths
enriching the cool ground for regrowth in the spring
provides nature with the power of recycling energy

all the smell of decaying leaves and slippery paths
a season of bright golden reds and yellow hues
provides nature with the power of recycling energy
autumn baptizes the ground with crisp golden leaves

Life under the Ocean

Tranquil life floating in a turquoise sea
underwaters many colors and moods
What happens in the deep blue ocean
it hides many secrets within its heart

Circling of the sun, changing seasons
in an unsurveyed, calm but wild ocean
universe conceals its deep treasures
life in the sea is an unknown mystery

Do the habitats feel an earthquake
Have they a clue that the sea is stormy
Is life like it is for us living in heaven
We will never know enough about nature

Haiku/Senryu Poetry

An in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

Time is not an Illusion

The clock is ticking
all there ever is, is now,
it is in the past already
we cannot relive it

Discover the value of life
time is a misleading thing
we all have the same,
hours and minutes every day

Is there a future we do not know
we have already lost that minute
Focus on what really matters
enjoy every minute right now

Time is precious, don’t waste it
we are a long time lifeless,
when the clock stops for us
we will never know about it

thunder echoing
accomplished with wild lightening
heavens opened up
storm raging all around us
mother nature warning me

Tanka Poetryconsists of five units, usually with the following pattern of    5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.

The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.

The last two lines (7/7) of a tanka poem are called the lower phase.  The final two lines should express the poet’s ideas about the image that was created in the three lines above.
