Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 35: (KNOCK) in the A rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

Ronovan says : You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (CURL and Paw). and this Décima Challenge of KNOCK in the A rhyme line. This means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.

The 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so.

Ruby. A Décima

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.

The Challenge Words!

CURL and Paw.

She knows how I feel
Her body curled round my feet
A paw touches me.

True, Selfless Love.

I love dogs, the are the most loving animals, they work with us and for us. The most important thing is they give us unconditional love.

Our Dog Ruby is a retired guide dog, we have taken her for her free run exercise time since she started working at eighteen months, when she retired she came to live with us.

Below is a poem I wrote about a young friend of mine Natalie, she a real hero. She has a partner and two beautiful and clever children. Ruby and I have the privilege of joining her and Quala, her guide dog on Qula’s Free exercise walks.

I wrote this double Etheree about her and Quala last year .

Blind Faith

Trust

Is all

I ask for.

Never will I

Complain. I will learn.

Eighteen months training.

I always do my best

To help you at play and rest.

I am part of the family

Life without out me is a memory.

I’m your guide dog to help and set you free.

Trust

In her

I put my

Faith. She helps me.

Blind, I cannot see

Her presence sets me free.

She is with me everyday

We walk the children to the school.

You help me work and play, my best friend.

Quala and me together to the end .

Cinqku, Ruby.

Guide Dog

Retired Ruby

Brightens my world

She lifts my spirits she

Sees all.

***********

A cinqku must always have 5 lines and a perfect seventeen-syllable count. The lines typically follow a 2,3,4,6,2 format. There is no title requirement on the second line. As for syntax and diction styles, it follows the free Tanka style originally. There are no metric requirements for a cinqku poem. Additionally, the final line must contain a cinquain or kireji turn for emphasis.

Me and my man!

Listen  up  and  listen  good

You  are  not  treating  me  the  way  you should!

You  go  out  and  leave  me  here

Caring  not  that  this  causes  me  fear.

 

When  you  come  home  you  stomp  and  shout

Sometimes  you  shout  at me and  shut  me out.

You  do  not  seem  to  know

I  am lost  and lonely  when  you  go.

 

I am loyal  I  am  true

I forgive  the  mean  things  you  do.

Deep  down I  you  care   and  you’re  not  all bad.

You hug  me  when you are  sad .

 

We go  for long walks  and  you tell me  you woe

You  bring  the  ball  and I  catch  your  every  throw.

You  feed  me  and  let  me  sleep on your  bed

You  are  the best  went  all is  said.

 

I hate it  when you  go out

You  hate  it  if I  make  a mess , no  doubt .

But  I  am  your  dog  and  your  my  owner

We have  each other, now   neither of us is  a loner.

 

 

 

 

Thank you Ted

Teddy

Big brown eyes that light the skies Soft and gentle always there,how many secrets do we share.

You kept me company day and night and you always made the bad things right.

You know all there is to know about me and that is why I love you so.

I grew up and you came too, you always helped out and made me smile when I was blue.

You watch over me night and day and so. I LOVE YOU TED  is what I have to say. xxxxxxxxxx
