Décima Challenge 36 Poets Collected

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

Please be sure to visit everyone at least once if you haven’t already. More variety than I thought would happen this week with the prompt word being Gift.

Here are 3 I thought were standouts for various reasons, those being reasons my strange my caught mid-flight.

But I Smile Anyway… | Ritu Bhathal – A nice poem, but mainly visit her for some moral support. Read her reason behind the poem below her poem. Wow. Very nice Christmas gift. Sarcasm dripping from every letter of that. It is called The Covid Gift after all.

Don’t Forget the Half | CSNelson – Of course, I like the poem but her layout for it was very nice and stands out. Perfectly done for a holiday theme.

Bill Engleson – Always a good poem no matter the style, but a very apropos one for all of us this week. (Really, I just wanted a reason to use the word apropos.)

The Inebriated Poet Awaiting the New Year

By Bill Engleson

To pile a cord of words in rhyme,
to give them shape, not let them drift,
is such a satisfying gift,
and helps one wile away the time.

And yet one’s thoughts turn on a dime,
for poetry’s not all there is-
akin to gin without the fizz,
rum minus coke, and so I think
a brace of bards do take to drink
for crafting’s often hit or miss.

  1. Aw thank you for supporting this challenger, here, Ron!
    I enjoy reading all the others, too, some so much better than mine, but I appreciate, you understand my frustrations!
