Writing Your Story

It starts with a deep foundation
Withstanding the shaking and trials of time
Sheltered walls firmly held in formation
Memories weave through each paradigm

Withstanding the shaking and trials of time
Breezes whisper incantations
Memories weave through each paradigm
Collecting stories with inculcations

Sheltered walls firmly held in formation
Breathe in all its mortar and grime
Collecting stories with inculcations
Creating prose and poetic rhyme

Memories weave through each paradigm
Expand as a balloon’s inflation
Creating a story of prose and rhyme
It starts with a deep foundation

Thursday at dVersepoetspub.com  no prompt. Just a poem. I think I like these Pantoums.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    That’s the thing with pantoums, Mary, the more you write the more you like them! I like the memories weaving though each paradigm and the steadfastness of the sheltered walls.

    The pantoum is a nice way to emphasize its first line. It all circles back to it. Good observation that a story needs a deep foundation.

    You do this form well, Mary. I like this one – writing one’s life story – all the elements are there.

  4. Such a good pantoum. It makes me aware of how, most often, we dive into our memories for writing inspiration.

    I like how the first and last line ties it all together. Love the collecting of stories from the memories stored throught the years.

  6. I mirror what Grace says… and want to add how much meaning has been added to the line in the last line.
