Sidlak – Sea

This time I am attempting a twin Sidlak bringing out the opposites faces of the sea. Looking forward to your feedback.



Slothful sea

echoes idling waves

ebbing gently on the shore

muted tides entrance the dreamy eyes

reflecting the blue expanse in a gentle harmony!



Enraged sea

swollen with ire

thunderous rumbles lash out

monstrous waves building a crescendo

the grey sea sings a tempestuous opera !


Sidlak poetry (sid/lak) is a structured poetry consisting of 5 lines with 3-5-7-9 syllables AND A COLOR. The last line must be a COLOR that describes the whole poem or the feelings of the writer.

  1. The two opposite facets of sea beautifully expressed. I really admire your sidlaks and haikus. Writing within a predefined structure is quite a challenge and you are pretty good at it.

  3. Describing two polarities within the restricted framework is quite a task and you have made it seem so simple and effortless. It brings out so beautifully, both the emotional facets of the mighty water body. Well done, Radhika 👍
