Fate swelled full of pride
So very pleased with herself
Her heart fit to burst

Last month, Colleen asked Yvette Calleiro to select a syllabic form for us to learn more about. Her choice was a form that Gwen Plano created, called the 4-11. You can find her 4-11 form HERE.

I have written a two stanza 4-11 and called it pride. Hoping to give someone special a lift….they know who they are.

PRIDE

Take heart, grow wings
Own your true soul
Turn to the light
Forsake the pain
That lies will bring
Take your counsel
Steady your step
Grab honesty
Only then you’ll
Find honesty
Take heart, grow wings

Pride can mean more
Than vanity
The soul inside
Must be set free
Ignore the slings
And words of fools
You must be true
Fight for your rights
Be proud, be loud
Now as before
Pride can mean more.

It often comes before a fall, leaves you shamed, feeling small.
Or it can make you heart swell as you watch your children grow and excell.
Pride may try to trip you up it’s the entrance to the gates of hell.

Colleen is here with her prompt she said : “Hello everyone. Happy June and Pride Month! This week, choose a syllabic form and a colour to feature in your poem. If the form is from the #TankaTuesday cheat sheet, let us know so we know where to look for directions. If it’s a new form, share how to write it and where you found the instructions. Think about the different ways you can use colour in a poem.”

I have chosen a Sijo this week . Which is a Korean form believed to have first been used in the fourteenth century. It is similar in structure to various Japanese forms such as Haiku. As with many forms of poetry, the Sijo became a preferred poetry form of the yangban or ruling class as well as royalty. They were written in Chinese and were originally short songs set to music. The focus of the Sijo is usually nature and contemplation.

There are: Three Lines
14-16 syllables per line
A total of 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.

So many layers of colour to the cake a profusion of love
Pride has more than one meaning, though all of them are valid
Whichever tune you march to be true to each other always

Ronovanwrite’s Sijo.

Ron has set a difficult prompt this week . Well it’s difficult for me because I never graduated, in fact here’s the truth I never took any exam qualifications. No O or A levels, as they were in my day, I never went to university or college so I really am in the dark. However all three of our boys have graduated and so their University Graduations are what I have based my Sijo on. I have written two .

Graduation

Pride is palpable holding our breath, our fledgings ready to fly.
Years of learning from the good, bad and mediocre
They are on the edge of the future God willing they may keep the spark.

35 words
46 syllables.

********

Graduation

Dreadlocks and piercings gone, new beginning in cap and gown.
No flounces for middle lad but his diplomas just as worthy.
Youngest dressed up to receive his papers first steps for them all.

33 words

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 83: (PRIDE) in the C rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

Thoughts spiral like demons on wings
Drowning in confusion I fall
No one listening to my call
Cought in the maddnes my brain stings.
Caught in the fear this harsh life brings.
Your strong words blow me apart, wide.
Can’t fight anymore, I’ve no pride.
Beaten me down, I’ve lost my soul.
You ripped it out and ate it whole.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

Introducing my great niece Saffron Collins.

Right guys this is a bit of a departure for me but family pride strikes again. This young talented lady is my great niece Saffron Collins. Great niece as in my nephew’s daughter, that said she is a great artist. The top videos is one of her songs from two years ago.

Saffron is a songwriter, musician, arranger and producer.. Those of you who know me will know why she reminds me of my favourite Imogen Heap… not necessarily sound wise but definitely talent wise. Saffron spent most of her school life and early musical career in the U.A.E. making her mark on the local scene in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Well the family are back in the UK. This post is to showcase her latest E.P. Album below. Good luck Saffron. Give it a go I hope you like it 💜

check her out here ,

As her dad says : “Saffron was A-Z music, lyrics, production, mastering…. really proud of her ability to create. As a music fan I love them all…. no cookie cutter sound!” And I agree with him 💜
