Décima Challenge 28 Poets Collected

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

A strong set of Décimas this week. Some very personal, with guts and backbone and brutal reality. That’s what the Décima can do. It’s a style from Spain and very much a part of Latin culture and the passion in those cultures seem to give permission through this style to go wherever you need to, or wherever it takes you. Sometimes, a poem just wants to be written.

The Change of Seasons-Dark

Winter pokes out from the far hills
And I watch, I wonder, I wait
for the snow caps to shape my fate,
the storms, the winds, the cold deep chills.

Other welcome winter. It instills
a warmth, an air of solemn grace,
of times evoked, the soft sweet face
of life and love forever lost
yet still alive, a permafrost
of pleasure ever to embrace.
