National Poem Writing Month 2021: Poem xxx: Farewell

based on a prompt written by Jacqueline Saphra, and featured in this group of prompts published back in 2015 by The Poetry Society of the U.K. This prompt challenges you to write a poem in the form of a series of directions

Row, row down the stream

Sing softly to rhythm of the oar.

Bow, bow down seeing the shore

Whisper lowly, no one should see.

Take a vault or make a jump

When the forest is near.

Hop and jump on the boulders.

Inhale, exhale, take a deep breath

The steps of stars beckoning you

To the path made of the light of moon.

Row, bow, leaving a deep breath

Drawing the last line of the poem.

April wind will sound melancholy,

Mundane and daily life echo around

With the sun rising behind the haven of mine

By Sangbad
