To my Bosom Lover

From the onset

you caught my sight

And won my heart,

Like  magic stars

We’re glued together


Oh! my rose

Your flowery taste is good

And your body contours all rhyming

With character well deserving,

Cuddling you to sleep at night

Keeps my soul awake

To take on the world


On my breath, I have vowed

To cherish you all my life,

Seeing you smile is my joy

I know no other love than this

And I pray it last long


In your love’s bosom

I always find the will

To climb ahead,

If this love is really a crime,

I’ll be glad to commit it.

  2. Very nice, Henry. What form did you use? The first challenge of the month you can use whatever “syllabic” poetry form you’d like. The rest of the month we stick to one of the forms listed on the challenge post: Write a poem using one of these forms: Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Gogyohka, Haibun, Tanka Prose, Cinquain, and its variations, Etheree, Nonet, Shadorma, Badger Hexastich (hexastich for short), and Abhanga. Thanks for joining in. ❤
