Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 7 (DREAM). This week, it’s the A rhyme spot.

Fearful I am trapped in this dream.
At odds I stand against the night
Lost in shadows longing for light.
Breathing deeply my mind I clear.
I am rooted to the spot with fear.
To make my escape I am keen
From this unwholesome and dark theme
In vain I try to forge ahead
Feet sinking in this mire of dread.
Reality just elusive.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge. For this particular challenge the word DREAM must be one of the A position words. Then the other two C position words must rhyme with DREAM.

The rhyme pattern is;

For this particular challenge the word DREAM must be one of the A position words. Then the other two C position words must rhyme with DREAM.

Brown eyes say it all
At odds with  his mouth, that smiles
A traveller with dreams.

When Evil seeps in

The wicked becomes mundane

Closed eyes just cause pain.

The  two sides opposed
Placid and wild, calm and storm
The answer's within.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #270 Pure&Serene

This is part of Ronovanwrites Weekly Haiku Challenge.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and the prompt words will in some way be reflective of that. The National Alliance on Mental Illness or NAMI is a big part of this.

In Serene knowledge

That Misery is not pure

Fight, reach for the light.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and the prompt words will be reflecting that in some way. The National Alliance on Mental Illness or NAMI is a big part of this.

Our dear Ronovan said :”Those of you who have been with me since the beginning of my blogging time for the past 6 years know that I’ve had my own problems, which was one reason I started blogging in the first place. Through the friendships I developed and the outlet blogging gave me I’ve improved a great deal. I have neglected those friendships, and however much I want to improve in that area I’ve been in a not very energy filled place in parts of my life and those parts have suffered.”

Ronovan’s words resonate with me too because I have suffered on and off with depression. I know the Black Dog well.

To walk in Nature

Is my own way of coping

Friends are my support

Gia always lifts my mood

Friends help me fight the Black Dog .
