An ABECEDARIAN POEM FOR END OF SUMMER SCAVENGER HUNT

https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/looking-for-an-august-scavenger-hunt/

Val asked us to write an abecedarian poem on the thenes of self discovery:

Ancient paths lead me
Beside the rivers of old
Chanting to me their soul songs
Dancing in the noonday sun
Etching on my heart their meanings
Flavouring my life anew
Going inwards I find a self
Holding visions and dreams
Inviting me to find the brightest
Jewels shining with new life
Kinetic rays of clarity
Lovesongs rare but true
Mansions of glory
Nights of innocence
Opulence divine
Priceless these things
Quiet in their divinity
Raising my mind to the skies
Soaring with me
To a better place
Understanding the truth of love
Visions of what I could be
Wanderings taking me deep inside
Xylophones playing out the tunes
Yellow orchids swaying
Zest for life again

  1. Another wonderful poem in what is for many a fairly difficult form! Love the images of chanting and dancing at noon! We should all enjoy the celestial music with such abandon!!
