A Foolish Vow: a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No. 6 EYE. (A New Challenge here on ronovanwrites.com)

A Foolish Vow

Threading his way through the thick crowd,
he takes pains to draw not an eye.
For which of these could be their spy?
His escape must not be allowed,
as to their master they have vowed,
if not alive … then severed head?
Would a bloodied corpse do instead?
But their mission will bring but pain,
cause each life will drain from each vein.
With their fate no tears will be shed.

Gypsy Quest: a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No. 5 MATE. (A New Challenge here on ronovanwrites.com)

Gypsy Quest

She disappeared without a trace.
He does not know her by her name.
Still, his love burns hot as a flame.
The one clue is her scented lace,
delicate as a cloud’s embrace.
He determines he is to locate
the one he calls his gypsy mate.
His heart beat strongest facing west,
that direction begins his quest.
for his thirst no other will sate.

Payback: a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No.4 ITCH. (A New Challenge here on ronovanwrites.com)

I like to do these with the, what I call art, images I do, but this week I had to do a Book Review for my LitWorldInterviews site and I just got too tired. Thus, we have only the text.

 

Payback

You took time, with a deadeye aim,

because you saw me scratch an itch,

this wound to my head needs a stitch.

Feel so bad, don’t know my own name.

Not hiding, because there’s no shame.

Get ready for when I get healed,

for your ending will be revealed.

It’s too late when you hear the crack.

That’s when it’s time for some payback.

Then I’ll be carried far afield.

Mad Delight, a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No.3 MAD. (A New Challenge here on ronovanwrites.com)

 

Mad Delight

Never attempt a style this mad,
you’ll undoubtedly go insane.
Then you split wide open a vein,
making so sad, your new comrade.

I’d surely be labeled a cad,
not to mention the sheer delight,
of enjoying the chance to write,
a new form of aged expression,
to let out some dark confession.
Now, imaginations…take flight!
