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.




The Storm


The army of tar grey clouds

 were merciless, conquering

 the perfect blue expanse.

Heralding their arrival

with tiny pearls of missiles,

they garnered more power

pouring down in a barrage.

Howling winds unleashed their ire

followed by the thunderous roar.

The flash of the lightning

lit up the concrete dark sky.

The wrath of the torrential deluge

continued its march unabated for hours

inundating all under its blanket,

the night settled into an eerie calm.

The burst of the chirps that erupted from dripping trees,

butterflies meandering across swaying flowers

invited the sun to smile and usher daybreak.
