poetry form week 33, Nemesis or Taulotogy


Nemesis is a literary device that refers to a situation of poetic justice, where the good characters are rewarded for their virtues, and the evil characters are punished for their vices.

Tautology is the repetitive use of phrases or words that have similar meanings. In simple words, it is expressing the same thing, an idea, or saying, two or more times. The word tautology is derived from the Greek word tauto, meaning “the same,” and logos, meaning “a word or an idea.” A grammatical tautology refers to an idea repeated within a phrase, paragraph, or sentence to give an impression that the writer is providing extra information.

a typical example

“Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme
From the bells, bells, bells, bells.”

“To be, or not to be – that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep…”

Image result for autumn leaves

icy and slippery earth

the walk way is long

the air is cold

feeling the chill

she skates her way in blind spots

leaving an owl puzzled and lost

the brown or orange leaves sit,

silence and winter wind blow

unknown destinationa

unknown movements in years to come

water is anxious
the cloud is crowed and dry
a wind blows
heavy T-storm drops

oceans of water fill mayfield
the earth is blue
too blue to stay helpful
only a helicopter sails above




a quote from poet

poetry and story inn fridays week 44,



Image result for who is my mother

The child cries at her breast.

And the mosquito also bites

The sleeping mother


With ink-stained lips,

The boy leaves his poem

For the cool outdoors



Stillness and solitude –

Sinking into stones,

The trill of cicadas

peter yarisford

And melancholy sadness and tranquility (Sabi and Shori)

On a withered branch

A crow has settled.

Nightfall in autumn.

– Basho

no money in amy’s bank account

she simply works at a hotel restaurant

surviving through water and leftover meals
