Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 48: (FORTUNE) in the B rhyme line.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (FOOL and Head). and this Décima Challenge of FORTUNE in the B rhyme line. This means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so.

 


****WELCOME TO THE DÉCIMA POETRY CHALLENGE****

Each week we’ll be attempting a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem.

If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on How to Write an Espinela or Décima Poem.

Or

THE QUICK DESCRIPTION OF HOW TO WRITE A DÉCIMA:

  1. There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme.
  2. 8 syllables per line.
  3. There is a SET RHYMING PATTERN we must stick to. ABBAACCDDC OR  two stanzas of ABBA/ACCDDC.

THE CHALLENGE PART:

  1. The prompt word given (in the post heading) must appear at the end of one of the given rhyme lines given (in the post heading), either A, B, C, or D. Let’s say for an EXAMPLE we use the word (STABLE) in the D line. ALWAYS DEFER TO THE WORD AND RHYME LINE IN THE POST HEADING. Sometimes I might miss changing those spots in the challenge post.
  2. The other rhyme line(s) should rhyme with the given word (STABLE). Then the other (D) line should rhyme. Words such as Able, Cable, and Fable.
  3. Once you complete your poem pingback and/or copy/paste your post link into the comments below.

Our Youth Need…

The young have not been so lucky,
their world defined by death and rage,
We had freedom, they have a cage,
locked up safe from the dying spree.

The fool and wisdom disagree,
on how to save democracy.
Our youth drown in hypocrisy,
as blue label fights red label.
They need foundations firm…stable,
with no games of bureaucracy.


If you can’t come up with a Décima using the given prompt, you can use a Synonym instead. I don’t want to stall your creativity, and with the possibility of a synonym, you will certainly write something amazing…or in my case, something that rhymes.

 

ONCE YOU COMPLETE YOUR POEM PINGBACK AND/OR COPY/PASTE YOUR LINK INTO THE COMMENTS BELOW.

  • That way other people can visit your post and check out your poem.
  • You can also put the link of this challenge in your post to let your followers know where to go if they want to participate. This is called a Pingback. This is not mandatory to join in or to put your post link in the comments. Click HERE to find out how to do a Pingback.
  • Reblogging is great as well.

Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.

Sites to help:

RhymeZone.com
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster.com  Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

http://www.engleson.ca  (Book purchasing sites on Author’s site Book Page)

Beginnings-Endings-Drollery to be Sure

In life, we must all play our part,
a lead role, yes, and sometimes less,
the second fiddle, I confess,
is where we must by default start.

Though a baby’s cry tugs the heart,
and often is the shriller voice,
a missive noting that it’s moist,
parents assume their rightful place,
caregiver, slave, best done with grace
and wit, as if there is much choice.

Thesaurus: FOOL, Head

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.
    • The link above has links on how to write Haibun and Tanka. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help,
    • For syllables for each word, and different definitions, you use the definition that works for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to Thesaurus.com for synonym help.
  1.

Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenge, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing with more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running that generates revenue by your visit or by clicks on whatever WordPress has put up.
    • Click HERE for a detailed post on PINGBACKS.
  3. If you like, copy the image in this post and place it within their post, just to show the Haiku is part of this challenge.

Vaccine Blues; A Decima (Decimated) Poem

This morn I stared at my ceiling,
didn’t feel the urge to arise,
heard the cat wail its hungry cries;
it gave me a guilty feeling.

Hanging in bed, quite appealing,
except for all my morning chores,
the cat, and sweeping a few floors,
making tea, toast, jam (apricot)
yet here I am, tied in a k n o t
got the vaccine blues: trapped indoors.

Chaotic Thoughts of Freedom – A poem.

Chaotic Thoughts of Freedom
Land of the living and the free,
with lips ziptied locked left and right?
Meanings formed in their own light’s sight.
Is this the home of liberty,
thoughts less of man than a bent knee?
We pick and choose the laws we like,
To hell with the rest, kill it… strike.
People’s tongues are tied up in k n o ts.
The First no longer calls the shots?
The US dies by high heeled spike.

If you can’t come up with a Décima using the given prompt, you can use a Synonym instead. I don’t want to stall your creativity, and with the possibility of a synonym, you will certainly write something amazing…or in my case, something that rhymes.

 

ONCE YOU COMPLETE YOUR POEM PINGBACK AND/OR COPY/PASTE YOUR LINK INTO THE COMMENTS BELOW.

  • That way other people can visit your post and check out your poem.
  • You can also put the link of this challenge in your post to let your followers know where to go if they want to participate. This is called a Pingback. This is not mandatory to join in or to put your post link in the comments. Click HERE to find out how to do a Pingback.
  • Reblogging is great as well.

Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.

Sites to help:

RhymeZone.com
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster.com  Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

How T—-‘s Mob Believed All His Lies and Fomented His Insurrection

From where I sit, my sinecure,
my respect for the Public Weal,
the rabid call to stop the steal,
was a sad coward’s last-ditch lure.

The antithesis of mature,
he stood before his acolytes,
accused foes of egregious slights,
and, indifferent to their fate,
counseled his mob to storm the gate
and overthrow fair voting rights.

A WINTER Badge below.


Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.

Drop by on Wednesday for the Décima Poetry Challenge. Sometimes the two challenges have similar themes you can unite over the week.

Click HERE for last week’s collected links for easy access to the poems of last week’s poets. (BITE and Teeth)

Click HERE. To learn about the new style I’ve created called Shi Rensa Haiku and how to write one, maybe even for the challenges.



An updated How to Write Haiku in English. that has just a little more detail and for knowledge and perhaps craft. And how to do a Pingback.

Useful Links.
Thesaurus: BIRD, Blow
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.
    • The link above has links on how to write Haibun and Tanka. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help,
    • For syllables for each word, and different definitions, you use the definition that works for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to Thesaurus.com for synonym help.
  1.  
  2. Copy the link of your finished haiku URL and paste in a comment below so we can all go and visit your Haiku.
    • You can do a pingback. What’s a pingback? Place the URL from the address bar up top from this post as a link within your post. Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenge, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing with more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running that generates revenue by your visit or by clicks on whatever WordPress has put up.
    • Click HERE for a detailed post on PINGBACKS.
  3. If you like, copy the image in this post and place it within their post, just to show the Haiku is part of this challenge.
    • I am not saying you need or even should, but if you would like to do so then go ahead.


The Challenge Words!

William Thomas Engleson: (Book purchasing sites on Author’s site Book Page)

Dental Health Memories

There, by their bedside,
they sat, false teeth in a jar,
ready to bite me.

Dental Health and Other Memories- A reflective Shi Rensa

There, by their bedside,
they sat, false teeth in a jar,
ready to bite me.

Ready to bite me,
Though I never mentioned it,
It did cross my mind.

It did cross my mind,
My thoughtless juvenile mind,
A swamp of sorrow.

A swamp of sorrow,
Their hard lives, and mine, so soft-
I did love them so.
