• Blank Verses for a Non-Blank Life

    September 23, 2010 ishabelle

    What can I ask for in my entire life If not for no one else’s love but yours. When all else leaves, you’re all I need to stay. When things go wrong, I can still make it through As long as you’re around to lift me up. When clouds are here to chase the light away, You stay as bright as any light could be. I’ll never stop this feeling that I have; I’m thankful that you came into my…

  • 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. 🙂 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…

  • 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. 🙂 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. 🙂 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…
