Ruba’i (Help me think of a better title? NaPoWriMo #18)

A.k.a. “Spring’s Dance” as suggested by Sean or “Return of the Geese” as suggested by Steve:

The wobbly song of geese return behind slate grey clouds of an inland sea
Branches are fuzzy with halos of buds, except the brave green needles of the pine tree
Clicking coffee cups echo up the stairwell and reroasted lunch unmildens lazy air
The sun has yet come out to play, but paved roads exist now to reality.

—————————————-
I honestly don’t know what to say except I’m sad Easter break is over. I couldn’t even come up with a title so if someone has a suggestion please let me know. I don’t know if I’m just unsatisfied to go back to school or dreading the hectic run to the end of the year, but mornings are so different when you know you have a full day to do whatever you want.

Reference from the NaPoWriMo website:
Today I challenge you to write a ruba’i. What’s that? Well, it’s a Persian form — multipe stanzas in the ruba’i form are a rubaiyat, as in The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Basically, a ruba’i is a four-line stanza, with a rhyme scheme of AABA.

Thanks for reading,

  1. How about Return of the Geese? Titles come and go for me, sometimes I can come up with a good one but usually not, lol.

  2. Spring’s dance… Here, our inland sea when the floods replenish her water, water that travels thousands of miles from the north, released by tropical monsoon rains, the pelicans return, with their giant wing spans, they too fly thousands of miles to return, to eat and to drink from the replenished waters that traversed an ancient red land.
