A Pantoum Poem

The End of Jollity
Photo by Seyedeh Hamideh Kazemi on Unsplash

Shriveled up, popped balloons cover rainbows.

Confetti is swept away in time.

The festivity has seized to exist.

-But I remain here standing still.

Confetti- glitter is swept under the rug of time.

-But I am the smoke still lingering behind.

I remain here ascending,

from the ashes of a strawberry incense.

-But I am the smoke still lingering behind.

My identity evaporates into thin air.

I come from the ashes of strawberry innocence.

I look back at the cherry wood incense holder and reminisce.

My identity equates to invisibility in this world because

the jollity has seized to exist.

I look back at the cherry wood incense holder and remember

Shriveled up, popped balloons deflate happiness but not my identity.
