Enchanting Hills:Triolet

Enchanting green hills beckon me
as if I am connected to them since eternity
sprawling, abundant beauty makes me glee
enchanting green hills beckon me
life chirps merrily wherever I see
epochs have witnessed their immortality
enchanting green hills beckon me
as if I am connected to them since eternity.
I find solace in this realm
all worldly possessions seem like mirage
their serene aura exudes calm
I find solace in this realm
wish to hold it in my palm
forever it’ll stay for eras
I find solace in this realm
all worldly possessions seem like mirage.

The requirements of this fixed form are straightforward: the first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the tight rhyme scheme.

My Lone Star

A bright lone star I notice afar,
shinning bright, soothing eyes.
I feel enchanted and charmed,
 such is its glory.

I’ll clear the sky of its stars,
except you my lone star,
and engrave
the deepest feelings of my heart.
For the universe to know,
what you are to me.
Not just a star in the sky,
but a star of my life.
I’ll travel light years,
just to be with you,
and Fade into you
to become your part.
