Cloudy Days (Sidlak poetry #2)

Sidlak poetry (sid/lak) is a structured poetry consisting of 5 lines with 3-5-7-9 syllables AND A COLOR. The last line must be a COLOR that describes the whole poem or the feelings of the writer.

Winter days
Curtain of thick clouds
The sun trying to come out
But the clouds would not part for the Sun
The world became grey without the light.


I have been in my daughter’s place in a small town in Germany from November 7th. I will be going back home this 18th. Our granddaughter was born in November and I have been having a wonderful time with my grandchildren. And I have also experienced winter with its cold for the first time. In one week I have experienced snow fall, rains, sunny days and cloudy days in one week. It has been a new experience. In my place there is no winter at all. We have summer and rains. During the monsoon season we have cloudy days but there is a lot of colour around us. There is a lot of greenery due to the rains. Very different from this place.

  1. It must be very difficult to write poetry according to syllables and to get it all right! Well done!!
    Here in north western Europe, winter is becoming a lot more uniform of late. Grey clouds, lots of rain and cold. In Germany you will get snow but here in England it is becoming increasingly rare. Hope that little granddaughter is doing well!

    1. Thank you dear Sir 😊, my grandchildren are fine. I am leaving for home this 18th. Will be missing them. I am enjoying writing Haiku, tanka and Sidlak. Sometimes it is easy and sometimes I have to think a lot. But it is fun . Regards, Lakshmi
