Sidlak Poetry : Dawn


                                                                   A new dawn

                                                         beckons us each morn

                                                       Radiant rays weave magic

                                                 Glistening all that it touches, to

                                                                      A golden hue.

Thank you Shambhavi for introducing this form of poetry !

      1. hmmm. yes, at that point of time. met her years later during the school reunion! her daughter reminded me of her and her husband was giving me black looks initially(we later became good friends)


  2. Hello dear friend! It seems like you are enjoying sidlak poetry and am very happy for a positive response from you. “Sidlak” is a filipino-visayan word meaning shine. Actually the original name of the structured poetry was “rainbow poetry” but such name already existed so the creator changed it to sidlak poetry. I do hope you enjoyed such structured poetry that started just for fun only. 🙂 ❤
