As always I chose to combine.

Rough Season Décima.

Bitter chill as night and hush falls.
The hedgerows full of sleeping beasts.
That this season often defeats.
Tomorrow and the hunt still calls.
The loss of hungry beasts appalls.
Nature only keeps the strongest
Winter’s cold winds last the longest.
Rough her rules may the weak take care.
She forges onwards harsh but fair.
Until Spring blossoms newly pressed.

Jack frost dances in the dark nights
Bedazzling magic on the streets
Glinting and glistening ice sheets.
Busy fingers of tiny sprites
Making all things sparkle like lights.
In the moon’s wintery glimmer
Spiders webbs sparkle and shimmer.
Home to cosy living room fire
Long evenings in filled with desire.
Passions growing bright not dimmer.

In these latest pandemic times
We need to keep our brains a-float.
Good exercise can rock your boat.
We all need to ring in the chimes
Even skipping to nursery rhymes.
Good oxygen to fill our lungs
To keep old Covid on the runs
Wear your mask and your distance keep
Wash your hands so the germs don’t creep.
That is how simple release comes!

You, now to then such contrast
You’ve become more than I guessed.
So grown up I am impressed.
I nurtured you in the past
We cope whatever shadows cast.
So whatever you may do
I will always defend you
You’re my child, I’ll watch you grow.
Blood of my blood I love you so.
No more to say the dye’s cast.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 38: (BASH) in the D rhyme line.

It is Wednesday and time for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Déima challenge.

Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 are separate but can be combined if you choose to do so.” I do choose too.

Bound and Sway. Décima.

Bound and tied, I am your plaything.
I am caught in your magic sway.
Your indulgence is all I crave
Play my senses, til my heart sings
Such delight your hands give me wings.
I sway and moan in ecstasy Use me now I’m no longer free
I beg for more, my hopes you dash.
Letting me fall with a loud bash.
You leave me breathless and empty.

We’re all locked up in our houses.
All hiding from the unseen foe
None of us knowing where to go.
Alone or with friends or spouses.
Long days full of stress and grouses.
Two planets aline like a star
Like the one wise men saw afar.
All borders closing no solace
We all need to turn about face
Our home planet we spoil and mar.

The gift of madness.

Corridors full of empty souls
Dancing but their spirits won’t lift.
Sanity is not ours to gift
Lost forever all youthful goals
Here hope is gone it downhill rolls.
Screaming inside, making no sound
Dancing in circles round and round.
Foresake all hope of leaving here.
Keeping guard, surrounded by fear.
We’re all lost never to be found.

Ruby. A Décima

© willowdot21

Gently she gives my elbow a knock.
Her eyes full of love “I need you”
I smile back needing her too.
She is my foundation and rock.
Tells the time better than a clock.
When I’m well she’s out running free
When I’m not well she clings to me
Somehow she knows just what to do.
She’ll always guide me good and true.
Ruby is my lifesaving prop.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 34: (STABLE) in the D rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

It is time for Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge and this week it’s the word Stable in the D line. As ever we may, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of Grace and Slip which again I chose to do.

Banished

What evil caused the fall from grace
What caused the fight that banished those
And shut the doors of heaven closed.
Evicted, slipped to earth disgraced.
They were no longer pure or chased.
They lost their wings, they lost their souls.
Still immortal, yet no more whole.
Heaven rent in two, un stable
The bloody war, truth no fable.
The vanquished lost their holy place.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 32: (SLEEP) in the B rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

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 .Ebb and Flow and Sleep.

The two challenges are separate but can be combined if we choose to do so.

Tides of Madness

The tides of madness ebb and flow
Restlessness only calmed by sleep.
The waking hours make me weep.
Dark seasons like days of shadow.
Seeds of darkling around me grow.
Fears inside me grow and recede.
Monsters use my terror as feed.
Madness has me held as captive.
Rise and fall, trapped, no more to give.
Madness eats my soul and I bleed

The above painting is work of Dorothea Tanning it is called The Madness of Doors.
