Umbrella of God : Shape Poetry (Letters from the Soul #21)


No
typhoon,thunder,tempest
and hurricane can make you tremble;
They cannot break your spirit when you
stand dauntlessly under the umbrella of God.
The divine power that created you will not only
shield you from the furor and bedlam, but will teach
you
how
to
play
in 
the
rain
and
how 
to 
talk
           to  storm
       the

Note:  This is a shape poetry which is a very inventive poetry form. In this type of poetry, the poem takes on the shape of its subject. As my subject is umbrella, my poem looks like an umbrella.

    Purba, this poetry form is a real challenge. My attempts thus far have been dismal. Yours is sublime! YAM xx

  5. Incridible, Purba . What a great poetic style and how difficult to place the words in such form by keeping the matter intact. Very nice.

  7. That's a cute umbrella :D
    I have it, but not in the form of almighty, but people like you who actually read and give me strength to keep writing.
