Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 16 (GROW) This week, it’s the C rhyme line.

Welcome to the Décima Poetry Challenge. Each week we’ll be attempting a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem set by Ronovanwrite’s.

Ronovan say “If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on how to write one.Or…Keep reading and find out, with an example included.


He also said “One last thing before we jump in the creativity pool, check out my weekly Haiku Challenge that often has prompts (Destruct and Self this week) that share a central theme, at least in my head, with the Décima Poetry Challenge prompt.”

The Gambler Décima

Always with an eye to the chance
The wheel of fortune spins around
Your spirits high feet don’t touch the ground.
Destruction leads a merry dance
Self denial your chosen stance
Fortunes lessen,they never grow
Your luck revolves like ebb and flow.
Self destruction the gamblers trait
There is no escape from this fate.
Loss of esteem the final blow

    Really good, and the concept of gambling is flexible enough that it could refer to anything

    Good point about the connection between destruction and the merry dance.
