Joy to world within

Omnipresent is Joy Barefoot morn walk in garden Soothing sight of silky blanket of grass Morning dew globules sparkling As if bathing Blades in freshness Greenery splashed on earths canvas Buds swinging, radiant Natures canvas Eager to unlock youth freshness Flowers gleeful as butterflies perch joyfully Esoteric on pollination in garden Fragrance radiating, amidst grass Aroma filled atmospheres sparkling First Rays splashing golden on natures canvas Aiding photosynthesis,energy joyful Plant and human balancing ecological freshness Plants in orderly arrangement in garden Seeds germinating in silence with invisible sparkle Sacrifice, seed for tree, uneven blades for uniform grass Mountains, rocks forever fresh Treasure of minerals,herbs,grass Wall to rain bearing clouds,life of many gardens Mother to many rivers, oasis in natures canvas Treasure of minerals, herbs, grass Seat of saints for Peaceful joy Protecting ecological sparkle Changing of Seasons add sparkle Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, varied freshness Spice to atmospheric environment joy Enthusiasm for new clothes, cuisine, party on grass Nature bestowed different seasons canvas Knowing, human love variety as desert love garden Compassion garden Love dotting rest of emotions as on blades dews sparkle Inner light dispelling darkness in lifes canvas Smiles, hugs, kisses, pats, way forward fresh Individual joy as gardens each blade of grass Spreading garden of cosmic joy Futile is garden without dews sparkle Cheer is soul of lifes canvas, inner search only lends freshness Inner bliss smooth as silky grass, search futile for outward search of joy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © Hitendra Mehta (Entry for Members Contest - "Joy to World” by Deborah Guzzi)

What you will notice about the end word pattern is the last word in line 6 is also the last word in line 7...so...THAT pattern repeats through the first six verses...you are still not using the right end words in the right place dear? The second verse should end with grass on line 12 and the first line of verse 3 should end with grass....etc I'll keep checking back. Light & Love

Dear new friend, you started off on the wrong foot..each verse but the last must have 6 lines, your first verse has only five. You are also not understanding the concept of end word repetition. Please check your soup mail for help! Light & Love

Hitendra, I had a hard time with the sestina form too. Why don't you send a soup mail to Deb Guzzi and ask for some input on the form. She had me rewrite mine twice and has been offering input to some others here. She leaves today for a trip to Egypt, but I bet she'll give you some advice on the form when she has a chance to read your mail. She's been helpful to people attempting this difficult verse form. I really like the message in your poem very much! Beautifully worded - Love, Carolyn

You have a good heart, Hitendra, and good values as well. Very wise to realize that joy must come from within to be lasting -- so many pursue fleeting happiness. Excellent entry for Deb's contest and I wish you success! Love, Carolyn
