Ode To Kimono Dance

Ode To Kimono Dance ode

Photo by amira_a

Rainbow-colored butterflies fluttering around-
And shades of spring, are the kimono girls
Dark like blackbirds and ravens are their hair
Fair is their skin, round like the full moon
Their eyes like stars of Arabian nights glow
Their dance gentle like waves of the Li River
And blow fans looking like maple trees of Kyoto
Their exquisite dresses swirl like whirlpools
In a motion as steady as a breeze’s flow
Each geisha dances with grace and rhythm
Lifting their flower-shaped umbrellas high
Their robes show sights of the Wisteria Tunnel
Or flamboyance of the Banpo Bridge fountain
As they stop, leaving the audience blissful
Their heads are down like a shy maiden’s eye
Rainbow-colored butterflies fluttering around
And shades of spring, are the kimono girls

I was born in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. I started writing at the age of 11. I am a passionate poet and I use the power of my heart and my imaginations to write poems. I've been writing poetry for five years. I initially wrote free-verse poetry but I was inspired by William Wordsworth's poems and then I switched to rhythmic poetry. I am a poet of emotions and sentimentality. I embellish my thoughts and ideas by adding several metaphors, idioms, and similes. In 2013, I participated in an inter-school poetry competition in which I was awarded the first prize. I'm hoping to publish a book which compiles up all my poems, called ''Farhanite''. In my opinion, being a poet is like living in a world of dreams and inner visualizations, that you turn into words adorned by beautiful metaphors, similes, idioms, and rhymes. Poetry is a tool that completely changes your personality, your style, your ambitions, and in short, you.

An Ode For Humanity

Scary Dance

Scary Dance short poem

Immersion in a regal carnage. Ash colored dawn was gang-raped. A bullet-ridden sexism shuts out the fame. Starts a chilling confession. O, my orion I adore your ruffled stance. Do not make a kill. Sunflower, why your seeds were participating

Ode To A Squirrel

Ode To A Squirrel ode

You see me Hurrying and scurrying Gathering my food cautiously, Looking around constantly worrying Sneaking around precociously. Weaving; bobbing, always dodging Bushy tailed little scavenger I am, So may despise me as I dwell in their lodging But all I
