Dingle, Denouement and Espy

On the 21st of July, we asked poets to use their "MERAKI", by creating a poem applying the words, dingle, denouement and espy. We offer challenges from time to time (sometimes weekly, usually monthly), as it keeps the mind flowing and preventing "writer's block" from infiltrating the brain. We chose 5 "Best Entries" out of 20 to be published here, on our blog, each poem written in a style all their own yet quite delightful.


Life's Poetry Yonder is a chasm hidden by a dingle one can espy with either bliss or ease the rhymes mingle with the nuances' tingle sending shivers like a lover's stolen kiss. The cadence of words leap from the pages mixed reflections and hues of sages Poetry has its share of excitement after the climax peeps shy denouement. © Rosemarie Miranda Philippines


Suddenly I espied A host of tiny flowers Of the sundry hues Roseate, pinks and blues White, crimson and red Blossomed in the dingle The more I gazed With a fondling soul The more they bloomed The jovial denouement Of a springtime dale. © Safdar Bhatti Pakistan



Finding a panacea of solitary loneliness In the harbor of dingle mindfulness Is it serendipity that I found a shadow of love In this galactic space of southern land Where I espy a glorious aurora strand Gorgeously emitting behind the corridor of the dell Blossoming like a plethora of yellow bells A marvelous denouement of God's creation from the beginning. © Leah Dancel Australia


Adventure From remote place of the dingle province Dreamt to be a star and ambitious to be a thespian She espy on her eye her parents' action The runaway to the city of fabulous lights. There she was a struggling country neophyte She tried her best to be successful in life She planned one day to go home with pride To show her decision a denouement of what she left. © Vincent A.

Oh, My Dear Muse Oh lethargy! away from my spirit! These four walls is killing my wit. Oh my dear muse, where have ye gone? Espy my state, and help me go on. Deliver me to a scene, so surreal Carry my thoughts to some valley or dingle As long as I have somebody to mingle So, my denouement, in transcendence I settle. © Mildred Par Philippines
