Halloween Party at Night

Lighted Pumpkins on the doorway
Invites witches to come and play
Wandering on brooms stick on the sky
Zoom Zoom and Zoom ,they fly

I was seated in a dim lighted room
With hunched back and deadly groomed
I slowly sucked in my thick red tomato soup
From a big bowl of scary dots and loops

Knock Knock Knock, I heard some noise
Crooked broken voices of girls and boys
Receiving the signal, I quickly gathered
My baskets with monster chocolate and fled

Hello Hello and Hello..we are in
Come let us  party for Halloween
From door to door, we go and call
Tagging for party friends ,short and tall

We scare and scare all through the night
Those who were caught on our sight
They stood and looked at us kids
Snaring at us with their wry smile undid

Witches or skeleton, we need no such dress
And telling there's yet no monster better than us

The Story of Rapunzel's Hair

Long Long ago, I grew long to flow
Wavy and sassy , chit chat as I go
I brush the soft walls on the towers
That measures my height as I reach lower
I am bathed in Lukewarm water
With natural herbs and natural colors
I am pampered with nourishing coconut oils
Carefully and neatly tied up to coil
My long golden mane with colorful ribbons
Adorned with flowers ,yellow and crimson
I am loved and taken care of so well
By a beautiful maiden named Rapunzel
I played messenger helping her find
Her true love role playing from behind
Up and down , In and out I go
Providing a only pathway to below
Until the wicked witch struck me upon
Cutting my beauty in two , one half down
Held wickedly on the hands of the witch
My other half on Rapunzel who's been ditched
I wander with her in the lonely woods
Unknown of the spell cast upon her only good
Finally, a rescue was bestowed through a Dove
To bring back my true long self and her True Love


Love and get loved - The story of Rapunzel's hair rescued through the Dove
One thing I loved about Rapunzel's hair is that she pampered her hair with love and affection which drove her to get healthier and long hair.I am not a Rapunzel but I can do what she does to her Hair [ pampering my hair to save what is left now :( ]

Life is fun when viewed from a different perspective ."Put yourself in other's shoe so you may know their pain" is a well known proverb. Now ,let me put it in a different way."Put yourself on the other side of the world say a dream world so that you may  know how beautiful your life is like a poetic world " . Chill !! :)

Shape Poems are a little tricky.They can be fun to be played with and also at the same time ,it is a little time consuming since we got to derive at a shape with our final outcome.They provide more fun especially to the children who gets attracted to patterns and shape and learning to write poems using this form of poetry can bring more involvements in literature.

You can know more about this form of poetry through these links
