Sunday Scribblings #187: Musings Here and Thoughts There

Today’s post has no specific theme, or so, I think. It is a few musings here and some thoughts there, so that is how the title came into existence!

Poetic Sundays: Exploring Musings and Thoughts

NaPoWriMo’s Day 28 prompt is to write a sijo. This is a traditional Korean verse form. A sijo has three lines of 14-16 syllables. The first line introduces the poem’s theme, the second discusses it, and the third line, which is divided into two sentences or clauses, ends the poem – usually with some kind of twist or surprise.

The Joy Prescription
They say that, laughter works best; really is, the best cure-all!
So can you, my dear doctor, prescribe me some – laughter – I mean.
One last thing, one humble request, can you, could you, laugh with me?
~ Vidya Tiru @ LadyInReadWrites

Better Unwritten?
With pen strokes, I pour the words, phrases and more, on a blank page.
I wonder, for just a pause, what they mean, these musings, these thoughts.
My fingers, slip on well-known keys.. but the meaning, beyond grasp.
~ Vidya @ LadyInReadWrites

A salute to an author I need to really read more of in this above poem. April 28th is Terry Pratchett’s birthday, and I used a couple of his titles for inspiration within.


On My Blog & at Home

My recent posts since and including my last Sunday Scribblings. Each letter of the alphabet features a poetic form for the letter as well as one or more books (poetry related).

At home, it has been a quieter week as we return to routines after attending a wedding in the family and touring college campuses the previous week.
