L'aura del campo


'é a lua, é a lua, na quintana dos mortos'
♣ Federico García Lorca ♣


Higgins Street Bridge, April 25th  2009, Missoula, Montana


L'aura del campo. A breeze in the meadow. So it began the last day of Spring, 2005; on the 16th day of the month of Light of the year 162. This is a supplement to my daily journal written to a friend, my muse; notes I do not share. Here I will share what the breeze has whispered to me.

Each noon we yawn and look up at the day,
mere mud-bound moments on this misty mirror,
pistils perfuming our petaled array.

We soar beyond your caged captivity
whimsically whistling as we wander
through the atmosphere of creativity.

She sets a fine table for tea-at-three:
tasty tarts, terrific tidbits, tempting
us to join and peck her splendid tapestry

Ekphrastic kōels. Prompts found in "EIGHT - 04.12.21"  :

a. "Water Lilies" by Claude Monet
b. "Umbrella Dancers" by Jonathan Winter
c. "Soiree" (Lady Having Tea with Birds) by Andrea Kowch

I purposely took a point of view from the waterlilies, dancers, birds.
Notes:

Kōel is a widespread form, that originates in South East Asia. Kōel is all about sound, as is reflected in it's structure. It is said to mimic bird song. It would not be amiss to use some onomatopoeia in your kōel, although it's not a requirement.

So, what makes a kōel?

Theme: Traditionally, the poem is used to explore a singular emotion or state, such as joy, innocence or surprise.

Structure: The kōel consists of one or more stanzas. Each stanza has three lines. There's no general rule for the length of each line, but they must follow a vowel-consonant-vowel structure. That is:

Line 1 and 3 must end with an open vowel rhyme. Like "no" and "go", "cry" and "sky" etc. The rhyme does not have to be the same for each stanza.

Line 2 must have alliteration. That means that the main words in the line must start with the same consonant sound, although connector words don't need to be included in this.
