Rooster

(Image Source: http://www.123rf.com)


this dawn
startled the moon
hidden behind the clouds
waiting for the rooster's song
but alas, he heard none yet
the sun leaps out from the heaven
yawning and rubbing those golden eyes of ray
"where is the rooster?" they ask aloud in unison
they wait not for answers, they cry not for loss
the world races ahead, in all its luster and fanciful gloss


PS: This is a form of poetry where the first line has 2 words, the second line has 3, third line has 4 and so on.   

This Poem is shared with Verse First - One Word At A Time.

  15. I wonder too what the fate of the rooster was...and whether he was forgotten SO quickly! I enjoyed this poem.

  16. Oh! Sky missed the rooster, but humans didn't, The nature alarm has gone silent, sadly.

    This pyramid style is amazing, looking forward to more forms.

  17. The interplay between sun, moon, clouds is an intriguing entry into this piece. And your descriptors are vivid and out of the ordinary. A very nice response to the prompt!

    this dawn
    startled the moon - you had me by the first line
    i love your descriptions
    and the message behind -- quite realistic.
    it's great how you presented a very real message but sweetly coated in a whimsical way of writing
