Cleopatra


Under the mask of gold,
I see only venomous snakes,
Poisoning her name forever....

    Yeah it’s true…but Beauty of Cleo…undoubtedly non venomous in eyes of beauty admirers …
    10 not for venom…but for beauty of dear Cleo

    Hi Marieta,
    'Cleopatra' works well as haiku. I like the gold and asp references because they are two images at opposite ends tugging with each other. Cleopatra still has that animal magnetism that attracts writers and readers. I'm wondering if you're going to keep playing and experimenting with haiku. (Report) Reply

    Hi Marieta,

    You started so well......too short, you could really make this great, remember how she was used by Ceaser, then cast aside by Mark Anthony.....the venomous snakes were the men in her life.....you have a good style but if you sit back and think of the great nation of Egypt and all the pressure on her, you could really make this a tragic poem, you have the skill to do it...why not? I only gave you a 4 this time.....but await you to resubmit or penn a new one? A challenge from me to you....... (Report) Reply

    Many a true word spoken in but a small sentence.
    You have nailed it with this one, I sometimes take Five
    Hundred words to say as much, but can recognise your
    brevity as true CLASS.
    Well written and Thanks for your note.
    Kind Regards

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
