Treasure Island

Philo Yan

(Malaysia)

Winter Sun


Rounded sun so very bright,
Fading fast on soft snow white,
Slowly, creeping windless cold,
Anew and the passing old.
Quickly, recedes the warm.
Silent scenery transform.

    Hi Nurain Ali-balogun,

    I just started writing poetry. Is there a significance with regards to the six lines and fourty-two syllables?
    As for the seven syllables, the words came to me as I look at the painting.

    I appreciate and thank you for your comments.

    Six lines and fourty-two syllables... Brilliant. The seven syllables, it is just your style or a poetic phenomenon I don't know about? (Report) Reply
