Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 3 MAD.

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 one.

Here is the quick description of a Décima:
10 lines of poetry
8 syllables per line.
This is a rhyming poem with the rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc.

This week’s inspiration is to use

Mad

as one of your “A” words, and meaning all “A” words must rhyme with MAD.

 

If you are having a bit of trouble with this prompt, just write whatever you are inspired to do as long as it is a Décima.

Tools you might need to write the poem are:
RhymeZone.com,
Thesaurus.com
HowManySyllables.com.

Once you complete your poem and post it on your blog, copy the link and place it in the comments in this post. That way other people can visit your post and check out your poem. You can also put a link, Ping Back, of this challenge in your post, to let your followers know where to go if they want to participate., but this is not a must to join in.

If you choose to put the link in your post, this is a Ping Back. Click HERE to find out how to do a Ping Back, if you have never done one before. Basically, any time you click on a link in an article or post, that’s a Ping Back.

Please share this post on your Social Media, such as Twitter or FB. As with the Ping Back, this is not a requirement. Reblogging is great as well.

Some people also like to copy the challenge image into their post. That’s okay with me.

  1. You guys will not believe this, but I wrote an entire, and somewhat awesome poem, before finalizing the prompt word AND still used MAD in the B part of the pattern. Wow. Sigh, I may just cry.

  2. How odd, I’d never heard of a décima before about ten days ago and then the word ‘décima’ caught my eye in my reader yesterday evening – your challenge. Earlier in the day I’d read my efforts with two at the fifth birthday celebration of our local writers’ club and posted them on my blog with a bit of an explanation.
