Oftentimes we come across someone who has real talent and we know in our hearts, we just have to share this with others – with the blogosphere.
And this is one of those instances in which I was so taken by the talent of this young man – LORENZO BERNARDINO a.k.a. ZORLONE – that I decided to blog about it!
To confirm my personal judgment, even the writing community at Helium.com has recognized his talent with his very first article entitled Writing for the Love of Writing , and had ranked him highly. His “Signs Your Wife is Cheating on You” is ranked 1 by Helium writers, and to think he isn’t married yet. Need I say more?
This poem was written by him – impromptu.
Oh, I forgot to mention that he is a practising medical doctor, specializing in internal medicine. Isn’t that amazing? A superb combination : A doctor-cum-poet!
Read his Cinquain and be the judge.
Here’s what he says:
My attempt at cinquain:
Frustrated feelings unfold
Overwhelmingly delightful expression unfulfilled
Every sip invites
Satisfaction of another company
A Blank Verse he composed in high school.
As the day stood still, woke up with a chill
And my hands are stiff, this body is adrift
Alone I felt and deep inside I cried
Such pleasure it was when I have found you
Lovely, sweet, unforgettable and true
All those treasured times I know we all had
I never did want to say our goodbyes
I don’t want to leave these friends in my arms
For we are destined to be together
If we separate, there will be no peace
But our hearts will remain in troubled grief.
