Symphony of Life: A Pantoum Poem

Symphony of life

Dancing ordinary sound

From joyful to strife

Simple yet merging into profound

 

Dancing ordinary sound

Colors made up of normal words

Simple yet merging into profound

Thoughts fluttering like birds

 

Letting the mundane resound

Moments swooping in herds

Flirting all around

From glamour girls to geeky nerds

 

Moments swooping in herds

Tying humanity together

From glamour girls to geeky nerds

All tossed into the same sort of weather

 

Moments swooping in herds

From joyful to strife

From glamour girls to geeky nerds

Symphony of life

motion
moving about
spinning whirling blur
nauseating heady thrill
motion

static
picture sound
crackling buzzing growl 
empty lost haunted overcome
noise

pause
frozen life
loud silent nothing
interrupted cautious alert stuck
pause
