Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 8 (FIRE). This week, it’s the A rhyme spot.

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 one.

This week, try and write another post using the Haiku challenge words, linking the two poems’ meanings together. It’s not a must, just a suggestion to challenge the creativity a bit more.

Here is the quick description of a Décima:

There are 10 lines (stanza) of poetry that rhyme but in this case, there is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to.
In addition, each line must only have 8 syllables.
The rhyme pattern is;
a
b
b
a
a
c
c
d
d
c

For this particular challenge, the word FIRE must be one of the A position words. Then the other two A position(s) word(s) must rhyme with FIRE.

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

This week is the 

A rhyme spot.

This week’s inspiration is to use

FIRE

as one of your “A” words, and meaning you use FIRE in one spot, and its rhyme in the other.

If you are having a bit of trouble with this prompt, just write whatever you are inspired to do as long as it is a Décima.

Tools you might need to write the poem are:
RhymeZone.com,
Thesaurus.com
HowManySyllables.com.

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 a link, Pingback, of this challenge in your post, to let your followers know where to go if they want to participate., but this is not a must to join in.

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