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

An age old story of the given a new twist, almost Cinderella. I like it very much. I am going to try this form. It is very lyrical.

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!
Thank you, for taking the time to explain the more you tell me the more I learn. 💜
Oooh, NICE! 😍
