One Man’s Words, another Man’s Politics – a poem

I recently, as in the same day I wrote this post and Haiku, shared a quote from a book a social media platform. And individual there that is a Friend there responded. My initial quote and supporting comments were not politically charged, at least I didn’t think so. In fact, they were about the planet, the environment, and the role humans have played in the slow destruction of all of it. Nothing was untrue. It was simply my saying that God gave us the earth and all things upon it to be good stewards of and have dominion over. Dominion meaning to reign over. To reign over something means you must take care of it, not to abuse it. Apparently, that part of what I said either wasn’t agreed on, was skipped, or the quote from the book set the person off so much that nothing else was considered. I was quite surprised to see a comment at least twice as long as my original update. But, it gave me this post, this haiku, this haibun. God uses the oddest things to make good from. I should point out this person as well as others have taken some of my recent updates as meaning I am a Liberal, at least that’s the message I’m receiving. I’m not. I am conservative in most of my political leanings but as I believe all people do, I agree with some ideas on the other side of the political line. If anyone is 100% one thing…I get worried. No one party has the right answers to everything. And I get the feeling some of those from my more distant past cannot see the truth of that.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 32: (SLEEP) in the B rhyme line.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (EBB & Flow). and SLEEP.

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…

Keep reading and find out, with an example included.


  • To last week’s links Décima Poets’ poems written for the prompt for ONE, click HERE for all the links in one post. A good opportunity to check out some examples of Décima.

THE CHALLENGE

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.

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.

Here is the quick description of a Décima:

There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme. 8 syllables.
There is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to. abbaaccddc

The prompt word given (in the post heading) must appear at the end of one of the given rhyme lines, either A, B, C, or D.

Let’s look at the rhyme pattern once again and you will see what I mean.

The rhyming pattern is abbaaccddc with a choice of a break between lines 4 and 5, then being abba accddc, which I use in my example below.


For example, if I say in the subject line of the post:

“…(FALL) This week it’s the B rhyme line.”

my Décima might be…

NO!

As the end wept upon the land,

we could hear the approaching fall.

Justice answered the trumpet’s call,

trusting the fight to her troop’s hand.

 

Fate trembles with haste to expand,

through misdeeds by her shameless foe.

Past foolish decisions now crow,

“Wait—no—this was not meant to be.”

They beg the nation, “Hear our plea.

Heal honor, shout, no…no… NO!”

 

Notice the example prompt word ‘FALL’ is in line 2, the first B line, and its rhyme is in line 3, matching the rhyming pattern of abba accddc.


For today’s challenge, the word SLEEP must be one of the B line words. Then the other B line(s) word(s) must rhyme with SLEEP.

Sometimes you break the rhyme into two stanzas using the following rhyme pattern. abba/accddc.

Once you complete your poem and post it on your blog, copy the link and place it in the comments in this post. 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.

Décima Challenge 31 Poets Collected

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

If you like quiet tequila nights, disastrous endings, and even some lovin’, you’ve come to the right place. Visit these 12 poets and find a style of poetry you may not have read before, even though you think you have. There are so many forms of poetry and this one is a cultural one for the Latin culture originating in Spain and continues to be important today in social, political messages and especially in Latin music.

One…And Lost

The night has come, the day is done.
they sleep the sleep of nevermore.
The sleep of peace, the sleep of war:
Both are the same, an endless one.

Never again to feel the sun,
the song of love, the joy of tears,
no highs, no lows, no dreams, no fears.
consigned to cold and endless terms
of rain, of mud, of frost, of worms!
Sweet lives lost, in timeless arrears.

Life’s Ebb and Flow – a poem

Life’s Ebb and Flow

heat flows through new veins
to the ends of outstretched tips
moon’s hold starts to ebb

moon’s hold starts to ebb
the sun gives its warm embrace
the energy flows

the energy flows
slowly, life ebbs toward death
hope waits in the dark

hope waits in the dark
lifelines retire out of time,
still, latent, until…


What am I? Do you know? Comment below with your guess. The tags won’t help this time.

Grasps for a lifeline,

The Mad Strangler

The Mad Strangler

“Wrangle?”

“Yep.”

“Bill, what’s a wrangle?”

“It ain’t a what, woman, it means go make me dinner.”

“Mmhmm. You better call 911.”

“Why?”

“I’m not a wrangler.”

“So?”

“But I am a strangler.”


I don’t know the age of some who might read this but in old westerns and the like, they would say “go wrangle up something to eat.” I suppose it had to do with those involed being wranglers, people who handled animals, those who herded cattle and horses. I guess they are what was once called the cowboy.


I rarely write anything other than poetry on this blog these days, but my first love is writing fiction, thus working on five books at once at the moment, and editing a romance for another author. But, when I saw the Weekend Writing Prompt by Sammi Cox of sammiscribbles blog was to use the word ‘WRANGLE’ and be exactly 33 words, this kind of came to met.

So Long Farewell – A poem.

So Long Farewell

Loosen your hold, oh greedy one.

So long to DayGlo, tanning buns.

Secret Service, and Big Mac runs.

There’s no prayin’, will help you none.

Your time is over, MelMel’s done.

Wave to Joe Joe, Kamala too.

We chose them, just to say screw you.

Troops ain’t with you, so no kook coup.

All your lawyers are scared to sue.

Lock your bank tight…Mel’s bout to shrew.


This may be my last overtly political poem for a while, at least I’m going to try refrain. Although I will likely make them as open to interpretation as possible. I’m a bit tired of it all. There are other aspects of life that are worth exploring and self-therapizing about.

May the poetry gods and saints forgive me. This is what I get for listening to a catchy upbeat poppy Taylor Swift hook right before writing this. Yes, I’m a Swifty. And if you are too or even if not, you need to listen to her latest surprise album Folklore. Not an overly pop thing. Real laid back. Done during the pandemic. Wasn’t even supposed to be an album out.


Whether you enjoyed my poem or not, please click the link below to head to this week’s challenge page and visit some of the loyal in the comments who keep coming back to write using this style of poetry that is so accomodating to different ideas and more difficult than you may think to write. And it’s a great feeling to know you’re writing in a style created hundreds of years ago in Spain.

A Gray Day in November-a poem.

So stark and dreary, this day of judges be,

with scarred scalawags limp in somber defeat.

Are they still useful, or just dried up debris?

Do they wish to win by revolting deceit?

 

The fragrant smell of a hard-fought victory.

Winds wave a once more respected Old Glory.

As the free people of the world cheer and sing,

Wistful crusaders rest and binge The West Wing.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 31: (ONE) in the A rhyme line.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (FIRST & Heal). and ONE. I think these might work together with the right story idea.

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…

Keep reading and find out, with an example included.


  • To last week’s links Décima Poets’ poems written for the prompt for EXHALE, click HERE for all the links in one post. A good opportunity to check out some examples of Décima.

THE CHALLENGE

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.

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.

Here is the quick description of a Décima:

There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme. 8 syllables.
There is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to. abbaaccddc

The prompt word given (in the post heading) must appear at the end of one of the given rhyme lines, either A, B, C, or D.

Let’s look at the rhyme pattern once again and you will see what I mean.

The rhyming pattern is abbaaccddc with a choice of a break between lines 4 and 5, then being abba accddc, which I use in my example below.


For example, if I say in the subject line of the post:

“…(FALL) This week it’s the B rhyme line.”

my Décima might be…

NO!

As the end wept upon the land,

we could hear the approaching fall.

Justice answered the trumpet’s call,

trusting the fight to her troop’s hand.

 

Fate trembles with haste to expand,

through misdeeds by her shameless foe.

Past foolish decisions now crow,

“Wait—no—this was not meant to be.”

They beg the nation, “Hear our plea.

Heal honor, shout, no…no… NO!”

 

Notice the example prompt word ‘FALL’ is in line 2, the first B line, and its rhyme is in line 3, matching the rhyming pattern of abba accddc.


For today’s challenge, the word ONE must be one of the A line words. Then the other A line(s) word(s) must rhyme with ONE.

Sometimes you break the rhyme into two stanzas using the following rhyme pattern. abba/accddc.

Once you complete your poem and post it on your blog, copy the link and place it in the comments in this post. 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.

the final bow – a poem

the final bow

the great hall grows cold,

no cheers or laughter abound,

for the fallen lead


My poem for this week’s Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge.

Right Practiced- A poem.

Right Practiced

The tension we feel is not good,
neither is it bad or evil.
It’s sane in times of upheaval,
when dreaming of what could or should.

Once deflating we know we stood,
now, meditating on the scale.
We played our part, we did it well,
braved to choose, whether right or err.
Down to the wire, a closing scare,
gasping for breath, breathe deep, exhale.

 


Whether you enjoyed my poem or not, please click the link below to head to this week’s challenge page and visit some of the loyal who keep coming back to write using this style of poetry that is so accomodating to different ideas and more difficult than you may think to write. And it’s a great feeling to know you’re writing in a style created hundreds of years ago in Spain.
