Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 41: (SHIMMER) in the C rhyme line.

Ronovanwrite’s

Ron says “You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (FROST and Glint). and this Décima Challenge of SHIMMER in the C 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.

Link to my Haiku.

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.

Our host Ronovanwrite’s said :You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (OPEN and Solace). and this Décima Challenge of STAR in the C rhyme lineThis 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 two challanges are separate but can be  combined if you choose to do so.

Again I choose to combine my Haiku and Décima.

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 Challenge Words!

LIFE and View

It’s a jaundiced view

From a life full of regret.

Let go of all that.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

A Rondelet. You Blind Me.

image from Pixabay

You do blind me
With syllables and comely rhymes
You do blind me
With clever tempo and smart verse
You’ve challenged me so many times
I join in with Rondelet chimes
You do blind me.

********

The above is a Rondelet .

Ronovan says.

 – How To Write a Rondelet—See below.


This is a poetry form of French origin using a syllable pattern, rhyme pattern, and refrains.

Sounds complicated and confusing? Nope.

It’s kind of like combining the Shi Rensa Haiku with the Décima.

How did that coincidentally happen on my blog of all blogs?

Honestly, I have no idea, because it was not intentional.

So how do you write one? I’ll put the quick version here and maybe have a full post later.

And no, this will not be a new poetry challenge.

TIP: Once you got it, stop reading. I will probably confuse you if you read too much. I have a bad happen of going overboard when I first explain a new poetry form, or anything else new.

There are seven lines.

One line appears three times. In lines 1, 3, and 7. Keep that in mind, because those lines need to make sense throughout the poem. It’s easier than you think. These are what are called refrains (repeats).

RHYME PATTERN:AbAabbA

SYLLABLE PATTERN: 4/8/4/8/8/8/4

Line 1: A—four syllables                A rhyme
Line 2: b—eight syllables               B rhyme
Line 3: A—repeat of line one         A rhyme
Line 4: a—eight syllables                A rhyme (I know it’s a small a, but it’s still an a.)
Line 5: b—eight syllables                B rhyme
Line 6: b—eight syllables                 B rhyme
Line 7: A—repeat of line one           A rhyme

TIP: Of course write line A first, but then go ahead and put it down two more times. space them out. Put a space between lines 1 and 3. Then skip three lines between 3 and 7. Sounds weird, but it helps. You practically have half the poem done with one line.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 17 (PRIZE) This week, it’s the D rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

Welcome to Ronovanwrite’s 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 one.

Ronovan gave us the prompt words, Eye and Light for our Tuesday challenge so I am going to try and continue in the same vein.

Eye and Light Décima

Eternally on quest for light
Constantly opening our souls
Eyes searching the ultimate goal
Slowly we emerge from the night
Behold the planet and its plight
Where is kindness, we have lost care
Mindless to how others will fair
We tread on those who try to rise
Forgetting the good things we prize
Eyes closed, to true light, unaware.

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 189, #POET’SCHOICE

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you!

So the news intervened in my choice today. The explosion in Lebanon’s capital Beirut yesterday prompted me to write the chain of Haiku below. As if the Lebanon has not got enough issues. As of writing this it’s not known if this incident was an horrific accident or act of war/ terror. I am praying for the dead and injured, numbered in the thousands.

I am combining Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge with Ronovanwrite’s invitation to try out his own new form of Haiku which he has named Shi Rensa Haiku. Here is his explanation.

Beirut

Kindness in measure

Helps us to flourish and grow

Please extend a hand

**

Please extend a hand

To those stricken by evil

In a far off land

**

In a far off land

Lives stolen and ripped apart

Look deep have a heart.

**

Look deep have a heart

We need to find new kindness

There is not enough.

**

The path covered white

Early morning, not near night

Eye deceived by light.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 16 (GROW) This week, it’s the C rhyme line.

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

Ronovan say “If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on how to write one.Or…Keep reading and find out, with an example included.


He also said “One last thing before we jump in the creativity pool, check out my weekly Haiku Challenge that often has prompts (Destruct and Self this week) that share a central theme, at least in my head, with the Décima Poetry Challenge prompt.”

The Gambler Décima

Always with an eye to the chance
The wheel of fortune spins around
Your spirits high feet don’t touch the ground.
Destruction leads a merry dance
Self denial your chosen stance
Fortunes lessen,they never grow
Your luck revolves like ebb and flow.
Self destruction the gamblers trait
There is no escape from this fate.
Loss of esteem the final blow

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 15 (KIND) This week, it’s the B rhyme line.

Welcome to the Décima Poetry Challenge. Each week we’ll be attempting a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem, set by our gracious host Ronovanwrite’s.

If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on how to write one.

Mankind

What is the measure of our lives
Not caring of our type or kind
Keeping ourselves only in mind.
Selfish thoughts are all that us drives
We ignore and avert our eyes
Not a care for those who struggle
Ignore the poor in their huddle
Strip nature of all her riches
Waste water leaving dry ditches.
Mankind leaves nothing but muddle.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 12 (WIND) This week, it’s the B rhyme line.

This week for Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge I have used the word Wind, for the purpose of the rhyme, in the meaning of to wind up. Though I have hinted at a wind blowing too. I have also linked the Décima to Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Intent and Thought.

Through boughs intent on destruction
Tearing like a hurricane’s wind.
Such violence rips up my mind
Thought scattered around, disruption
No direction no conduction
My demise is its sole intent
Mindlessly hither and dither I’m sent
lt’s intention, to destroy me
To shipwreck me in misery.
Asunder I am slowly rent.
