Happy New Year, dear readers!
Yesterday I wrote my first Kwansaba based on Living Poetry’s Monday poetry prompt.
Try writing a kwansaba. A kwansaba is a poetic form invented by Eugene Redmond that contains seven lines of seven words, with each word containing not more than seven letters and is typically a praise poem.
Here’s mine. Hope you like it.
The Nature Of Nurture
For some to nurture is their nature,
meant to be parents, friends, lovers,
always the first called when tragedy arrives,
first to come when a child cries,
first to care while the lonely abide
because we know they — you offer comfort
right when I need you the most.
