#BlogchatterA2Z challenge and NaPoWriMo-2022

In this series of Intuitive poetries that I’m penning for the #BlogchatterA2Z challenge and NaPoWriMo, here comes the final heteronym character, Zara, a feminist.

At first, a different poem came to me as I sat down to pen, but then a Cento (read here) that I had written previously looked more apt and appealing for the kind of character, Zara grew to be.

Introducing Zara with this Cento, a poem that is a collage of verses from different poems:

ZARA

My desires are many and my cry is pitiful,  
My body's wisdom tells and tells again  
A voice inside, briefly, soothing the pain-
“These men bearing flags were thirsty for love.”

There was never a consent, nothing of me
They grow on me like leaves on a tree.

“That virus is not for you 
They decayed before they were born”
nothing can mend, I’m already torn.

They never seem to stop their coming,
They grow on me like leaves on a tree,
There was never a consent, nothing of me
That I shall find my rest, my sleep, my peace
the voice fountains, thrusting brevity at ease...

“The infinite knows what you hunger for
Ask Him to carry you across”
My conflicting mind dives into a pause
From a silence, somewhere deep within.

Strength surmounts, knowing whom to let in
saving me from perils of weak, uncertain desire.

“Day by day thou art making me worthy
 of thy full acceptance”- I surrender
For men may come and men may go, 
but I go on forever…

Dear reader, with this poem, my posts for the #BlogchatterA2Z and #NaPoWriMo challenge for the year 2022 ends. I am happy to have been able to share this journey with you. Your reading of the poem, feedback, comments and generous shares had played an immense role in keeping me going. Coming your way are my heartfelt gratitude and much love.

While this challenge may come to an end today, the heteronym characters that have come alive along this journey are meant to stay here, letting you inside their life through their poems. Feel free to come back and get a peek into their lives. Also, let me know which of the characters you liked the most/ resonated with and whom do you want to know more personally? Let me know in the comments!

You have been an amazing reader.

Thank you for your kindness!
