Today’s Challenge Today sprinkle the beauty of Anaphora on the bed of your poetry.
In writing or speech, the deliberate repetition of the first part of the sentence in order to achieve an artistic effect is known as Anaphora.
Anaphora, possibly the oldest literary device, has its roots in Biblical Psalms used to emphasize certain words or phrases. Gradually, Elizabethan and Romantic writers brought this device into practice. Examine the following psalm: “O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?”
The repetition of the phrase “O Lord,” attempts to create a spiritual sentiment. This is anaphora.

Today let’s employ the word ‘amok’ in your write up. Any genre, any length.
run amok - behave uncontrollably and disruptively. Amok, formerly also spelt amuck, comes from the Malay word amuk, meaning 'in a homicidal frenzy', in which sense it was first introduced into English in the early 16th century.

It was on a bright spring day when we met When I was wandering in the valleys of daydreams And I saw a shy lily blossom on the river bank I remember wondering, " is today my lucky day? "
You are a flower of hope in this chaotic world The one I adore and wish to keep in full bloom Scorching summer came, then bleak and blustery fall Restraining winter, yet we deepen our bond
Numb and frozen, wandering in this cold world When you find a warm heart, hold on tighter The one that won't just wish you, a later spring Would suffer the winter to welcome spring together
Can I be the rain drop to your longing land The snowflake to your yearning evergreen forest Though I'm impatient, I'll wait as long as it takes To meet you, I'll suffer all the way to your abode
I keep on thinking of a moment in my dreams When I meet you for the first time in real life I know beforehand how I'll cherish that memory How that will be the most beautiful moment in our life
So please stay longer until we see the spring break Until we witness the blossoms of our waking dreams And let those petals shower gleeful blessings over us When we meet I'd trade a bouquet of lilies for your smile
Smile with me... Cry with me... Rise with me... Fly with me...
You have no idea how happy I'm today I don't know if you'd believe the number of times I had an emotional breakdown since last night And all I wanted was to hug you and cry I couldn't write anything because I was so out of my mind I've come to adore you and love you so much I think the day we met, I took you as my real sister You'll always be the Kookie to my Taetae
You are this flower Kookie is holding You're the Lily of my Valley
Happy Birthday My dear May all of your dreams come true Stay Happy and Healthy Stay with me, with everyone.. With our Family Saranghae
It's one of those sunsets again, thunder and lightning welcoming showers of drizzle. Drenching a scorching heart so lost in the crossroads of life. Right or wrong, true or false, begin or end... Where do I begin to end in you? Or should I end it all for once, to begin with you? You were the only cause of my bliss for a forever I've lived in love... Alone... Nobody should ever be in love alone. It makes alone dangerous, pushing the mind to a path of no return. I wonder if I can make it right if I go back in time and change it all. Where should I go? What should I change? You, me or us? Or just me, myself and my life? It feels like the future is a movie for which I'm the audience. No part, no dialogue, no reference. Where did I go wrong? Or did I erase myself from this life?
Together was a hollow word until they met Around the world, wanderlust met passion El Mariachi, they sing, dance and make merry Kite above the clouds, flying up and floating Oh! The sunrise gathers golden light as they sing Oh! The sunset welcomes shining stars as they dance Kaleidoscope of music plays on, voyages never end * * * Airplane windows, hotel room walls Night sky on terrace, stars that shine Limelight fades in the lonely nights We only had each other to belong to I want to see the shine in your eyes But never a single tear to find a way I want to feel the bliss of your smile But never a pretend to hide your fear You are you, the real one, the pure one No matter how hard the world tries To break you, I'll always stand before you I'll never let you hurt, as long as I'm alive
// Wherever I go, whatever I do A part of me, the best part, is you //
To my Dear sister @taekook_maknae Happy Birthday May all of your dreams come true Be Happy and Healthy Saranghae
Once upon a Time I met a girl Starlit eyes and moonshine light Melodious love hidden in a pearl Mellow songs playing at night
Quietly she hummed the songs Dancing like a ballerina of dreams Then wished for a love like stories And a Prince to fall for her charms
She spreads joy like yellow sunrise Abundant love like monsoon rain Smiles like the winter snowfall Warmth like blanket of the night sky
I share my happiness, my worries And my many daydreams with her We embraced each other's crazy We want to fly high and touch the sky
The journey of our life continues As we walk together holding hands In search of sunshine that glows bright Same moonlight that shines upon us * * * My Jelsaaaaa @fairytales_
