Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 7 (DREAM). 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.

 

 

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 DREAM must be one of the A position words. Then the other two A position/s word/s must rhyme with DREAM.

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

DREAM

as one of your “A” words, and meaning you use DREAM 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, Ping Back, 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.

If you choose to put the link in your post, this is a Ping Back. Click HERE to find out how to do a Ping Back, if you have never done one before. Basically, any time you click on a link in an article or post, that’s a Ping Back.

Please share this post on your Social Media, such as Twitter or FB. As with the Ping Back, this is not a requirement. Reblogging is great as well.

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

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 305: Conflict&Gypsy

Please come by on Wednesday for the new Décima Poetry Challenge
It launched this past Friday, my blogging anniversary, but I will be posting them on Wednesday’s going forward.

How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.

Remember to come back and visit the comments section during the week for your fellow poets entries!

Haiku Poetry Prompt Writing Challenge Useful Links.
Thesaurus: Conflict, Gypsy
HowManySyllables.com
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The Guidelines are simple.

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English 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 within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. 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 visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
  2. The two words can be used as you like. Words have different definitions and you can use the definitions you like. You can even use a synonym word as long as it does not change the meaning. Go to Thesaurus.com for Synonym help.
  3. Use the Tag of Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge. This will help me find you in case you forget to ping back or leave your URL in the comments.
  4. Copy the link of your finished haiku URL  in a comment so we can all go and visit your site to see what you have done. You can do a ping back. What’s a ping back? Put the URL link in the address bar of this post, if you like, within your post. Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenges out, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing by more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running I get paid for by your visit. Click HERE for a detailed article on Ping Backs.
  5. You may copy one of the badges/images appearing in this post below or above and place it on your site if you wish, most normally use it within their post. I am not saying you need to, but if you would like to do so then go ahead. It is simply my way of saying thank you for participating. I sometimes make custom images for the week, if time and health permits.
  6. The Challenge currently BEGINS at 8 AM EST (New York City time) on Mondays. And a DEADLINE is Noon EST (New York City time) on the Sunday following the Challenge Post release.


The Challenge Words!
