“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.”

~Jean Cocteau

Those who have known me for a long time and have placed orders for personalised poetries as gifts (yes, I do it for a living, check here!), know for sure how much I am into acrostic poems. Well, an acrostic poem is one where combining the first letter of each line spells a word as you go down the poem. This time around, a variation of the acrostic poems given as a prompt for the NaPoWriMo challenge had my attention. The challenge is to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line. So what I did is that I clubbed the original version and variation of the acrostic poem to pen this, where the first letters down the poem would read KALA and the first words down the poem will read “Keeping alone, laughing aloud”.

Interestingly, I must say that in this series of Intuitive Poetries that I am penning as part of the #BlogchatterA2Z challenge and NaPoWriMo, this particular character, Kala, has turned out to be more mystical than any other character. With every other heteronym character, at least halfway through the poem, I would get a clear picture of what exact emotion is being carried and what are their particular characteristics. But with Kala, a poem in just four lines, she evokes mysticism. I don’t know if she is happy, at peace, desperate, lonely, revengeful, plainly sarcastic or something totally different. I hope she unveils herself more in the future.

For now, introducing Kala through this:

KALA

                                                                            Keeping myself away from your sight
                                                                            Alone, in the eerie silence of the darkest night
                                                                            Laughing at a joke you cracked, back some years
                                                                            Aloud I hear the echoing sky; a cosmic joke thunders

What do you think or know about Kala? Does she speak to you? Do you get the emotion she evokes? I definitely don’t, as of now. So if you do, then let me know in the comments!
