Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 26 (SWING) This week, it’s the A rhyme line.

Ronovan chose the word SWING for the rhyme line A this week.

We can if we wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (SCORCH & SHADOW). and  our SWING line Décima.

The two CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so. I have chosen to carry my theme from my haiku forward to my décima.

Covid Dream Décima.

The notes flow with a gentle swing.
Temperatures may be scorching
Shade from the trees we are sourcing .
Spirits soar like birds on the wing
Filling glasses with rum or gin
We soon trip the light fandango
No time for waltz it’s all tango
Sweating bodies dip, bump and grind.
Suddenly you awake to find
It’s a dream Covid rules say NO!

    I didn’t know where the poem was going, then BOOM, fantastic last line that pulls it all together (and too bad for the speaker).

    Ha! Love it! Excellent and playful with a surprise ending. I was enjoying the party…until you woke up to our somber reality.
