In the shade of your heart (Double Oddquain butterflies)

by Meena Krish   Aug 4, 2015


You
have erased
my bleak moments with
a touch of your compassion,
Now...
I cry with a whole heart not
wanting to loose
this special
bond;
Changed
is my life
for I can with peace
walk in the shade of your heart,
And...
without been judged or questioned
feelings can rest in
your open
arms.

Oddquain butterflies - a "merged mirror oddquain" where the
two stanzas of a mirror oddquain are merged together, one of
the middle 1 syllable lines is dropped, resulting in one nine
line stanza of the form 1-3-5-7-1-7-5-3-1. Please note that a
oddquain butterfly is not a "oddquain" because it doesn't have
five lines, but it is "butterfly" made up of two oddquains that
were merged together into one poem.
