Décima Challenge 26 Poets Collected

10 Poets from last week’s challenge of SWING and their Décimas. All links open in a new window when clicked on.

Nice variety this week. A bit of humor, some family stories, nature, nurture, a bit of this, a bit of that, and etc. In other words, we got some good sttuff this week. (Don’t judge the poets by my lack of couth and grammatcal dexteritty and adeptitude.)

Yeah, I had to look up how to spell couth, what of it? I’m not ashamed to admit it.

EASTELMHURST.A.GO.GO.: The East Elmhurst A Go Go


In the Swing of Things

I wait in my corner: a spring
in my step, smile on my lips,
ignoring that pain in my hips,
loaded for bear, but here’s the thing…

Much has changed, a pendulum swing,
a wearing down, more fits than starts,
my fair share of replacement parts;
Not quite bionic, robot bound,
and there are days I don’t hear a sound,
bred by Science, and not the Arts.
