Gypsy Quest: a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No. 5 MATE. (A New Challenge here on

Gypsy Quest

She disappeared without a trace.
He does not know her by her name.
Still, his love burns hot as a flame.
The one clue is her scented lace,
delicate as a cloud’s embrace.
He determines he is to locate
the one he calls his gypsy mate.
His heart beat strongest facing west,
that direction begins his quest.
for his thirst no other will sate.

    • The Décima has been used in Latin American culture for a long time to create songs. It’s taken me quite a few times to get a Décima to turn out sounding like a rhyme. It can be difficult when you want to relay a certain message and feel. Good luck.

      And thank you!
