As part of the series, Intuitive Poetry for the #BlogchatterA2Z challenge and #NaPoWriMo, introducing to you the next heteronym character, Lasya. Well, for this poem, Lasya takes up the NaPoWriMo Prompt as a challenge, which says:  here is today’s prompt: it’s based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” Today, challenge yourself to write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.

Introducing Lasya, with this poem that stitches 5 tankas (a poetry form) together:

 Day14-NaPoWriMo-Lasya-An Excerpt
Day14-NaPoWriMo-Lasya-An Excerpt

LASYA

on our honeymoon
twelve years back, romance bloomed with
neelakurinji*
hills got draped with purple love
a rarity romancing

***
pink is for girls, while
blue is for boys, never knew
who created bias?
maybe kinder joy covers
should turn a fluid purple

***
the bleeds beneath my
skin-scars in shades of purple-
tattoos of my strength
battling a war forever
I'm a purple warrior

***


the periwinkles
stood out amidst all the blooms
purple, permanent
they're smiles of all seasons
gentle reminders of life

***

why limit to the
sun's red or oceanic blue
mystic purple hugs
in the expanse 'tween sky & earth
a cosmic love of the two

*neelakurinji is a wonder flower that blooms once in 12 years in the hills of Western Ghats.


So, were you able to identify that single question that Lasya answers with 5 different answers? Let me know in the comments!
