aloueta

little lark in flight
such a wondrous sight
giving my heart cause for pause
her joy makes its mark
her little wings arc
as she swoops, ascends and soars

song cheerfully bright
her high trills just right
spreading joy and hope, because
she can light the dark
igniting a spark
lightens our daily chores

**************

when the sun shines bright
my life feels alright
joy dulls unhealthy urges
all tasks completed
doubts now defeated
creativity emerges

emerges with might
keen to fly my kite
play naturally purges
fears now depleted
gratitude greeted
true loving kindness surges

two for the price of one, couldn’t resist it once I got into the flow!

Aloueta was created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, (12 lines or more)
with the following set rules: Syllabic: 5/5/7/5/5/7 Rhyme Scheme:  aabccb
The form name is a French word meaning ‘skylark’ or larks that fly high, the association to the lark’s song being appropriate for the musical quality of this form.

Larks are symbolic of joy, hope, and laughter. These birds start singing with the sunrise, scattering brightness and warmth in the world with their cheerful songs. However, the crescent present on their breast also connects them to the Moon and, hence, femininity.

  1. What a beautiful poem about the lark flight and song, Kate .
    It makes me nostalgic too because in my area with very large fields and enlarged roads, larks become rare . I loved so much to see and hear them.
    Love ❤

  2. Amazing and uplifting…the photo of the lark and your poem! 🙂
    I bird watch every day…they bring me joy and laughter. From the tiniest humming bird to the biggest hawk or crow and every size bird in between! 🙂

  3. Kate, I enjoyed your poetry, and the bonus verses made it even better. My writing has been in overdrive the past couple of weeks so my busy pen has crafted a surplus of work. Thanks for sharing your gifts as they inspire other writers such as myself. Blessings to you this week.
