Décima Challenge 40 Poets Collected

11 Poets from last week’s challenge of FLOAT 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.)

EASTELMHURST.A.GO.GO | Larry Trasciatti:  The Raft


T….: a Canuck’s Response Midway thru January 13th

Impeached or not, he’s bound to go,
The final bell, the College vote.
He’s now at sea, can barely float
much more than “save the Alamo.”

We see the gulf, the rancour grow,
positions weighted by the yoke
of rhetoric as blurred as smoke.
He is a dismal, thoughtless force.
And though we trust he’s run his course,
a future run should be revoked.
