Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 20 April 2019!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Synchronicity Poem. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Syncronicity poem?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Synchronicity Poem

“Synchronicity” (The state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.). This form consists of eight three-line stanzas in a syllable pattern of 8/8/2. This poetry type has no rhyme and is written in the first person with a twist. The twist is to be revealed within the last two stanzas. Created by Debra Gundy.

Example of a Synchronicity Poem

Charcoal Shades of Gray

Thin ray of light, parted curtains,
slight illumination within,
he sits.

Age spots rest upon head and hands,
thinning hair mostly white and gray,
alone.

Bible aside, devotions done,
quietly repeating the verse
he loves.

By the fire, age worn bones warm,
reminiscing through past echo’s,
of life.

Deep furrows darkening the brow,
darkness below moist eyes of gray,
long lost.

The scope within reality,
charcoal shades of gray forever,
long past.

~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~

The artist’s sketch in charcoal shades,
depict a man of many years,
hard times.

Is this man’s reality through
the scope within the artist’s mind,
or not?
