Cryptic Cold

Finally, today’s assignment; a Concrete form of poetry with a prompt of ‘cold’. Ah well, this one’s a story weaved around the snow, about how cold-blooded, humans can be. Do have a go through it and tell how it sounds! Happy Reading!

Cryptic Cold

 

Loud,

several,sirens

sounded. A mixture

of ambulance & police   

vans. They travelled along,

amid the snow, To the place ,

where he was lying, dead.She 

came out of the car,amid the snow

And saw him lay motionless. Her only

family in the world, She stared, at the

place, where he was lying, dead.         

She stood right there, fixed to the spot.

And scenes of past flowed across, Where

he had asked to marry her, Amid the

snow. She cried her life out,At the

place where he was lying, dead.

A knife so sharp, had

pierced through him

How cruel a man to

do so, But the cold-

blooded murderer,

had fled, Amid the

snow. And left the

victim as he was,

At the place,where

he was lying, dead.

So this was my today’s attempt at the concrete poetry, I guess it does form the shape of a knife:-P

Anyway, I hope you liked it. Thank you for reading!

  1. Superbly demonstrated concrete poetry. Somewhere, thought of typographical and its perfection took over your usual self and sense of poetic pauses and intonations. Cryptic cold wasn’t as cryptic as your other poems, but overall- I loved it.

  2. Brilliant form and rhetoric. It was fast, literal and fluid. There are small things that caught my eye, which shouldn’t have been there, but I guess this was the first and the last draft, so it happens. Keep writing Lavanya! Looking forward to reading more in the future 🙂
