It feels as though assignment 5 of this course has come around fairly quickly. Fortunately I have had a chance to recover from my exertions during assignment 4. Today’s prompt is “Fog”, as usual the good folks of The Daily Post allow a great deal of creativity with the days theme. The poetic device suggested for today’s assignments is the Metaphor. The form for today will be Elegy.
1.(in modern literature) a poem of serious reflection, typically a lament for the dead.
synonyms: funeral poem/song, burial hymn, lament, dirge, plaint, requiem, keening; More
2.(in Greek and Latin verse) a poem written in elegiac couplets, as notably by Catullus and Propertius.
My concrete curse has left me here, void of any sweetness.
The sour sun has found me, foolish and full of weakness.
Defeated, rendered, speechless,
suffocating in a spectrum,
Plectrums of vivid voice penetrating my souls septum.
My shroud of sureness withered by effervescence of clarity,
Naivety holds ground on ever lessening gravity.
Greys, of golden days, are relegated to myth.
My misted haze, youth, has settled in an abyss.
