Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 33: (BLIND) in the C rhyme line.

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

If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on How to Write an Espinela or Décima Poem.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (LIFE and View). and BLIND.

Ronovanwrite’s says the two challenges are separate but can be combined if choose to do so. I choose to combine, my Haiku and Décima.

Eyes tight closed to hide from the truth.
No worse lies than those to one’s self.
It’s detrimental to your health.
It’s the opinion of youth.
Answers second, after the boot.
Life often leaves us lost and blind.
Making our thoughts the jaundiced kind.
There’s nought, worse than self deception.
Spreading like a mass infection.
There’s no silver lining to find.

    Good observation: “There’s nought, worse than self deception.”

    Well done! In a few weeks I am going to start trying this. You make it sound easy-breezy but I know you work hard to make it sound so good.

    Thinking about you a lot for tomorrow. 💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🙏🙏🙏

    I really like the comparison of jaundice to some thoughts that we have when we are “lost and blind.”
