Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 47: (START) (letters spaced out due to spam) in the A rhyme line.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (ACHE and Ease). and this Décima Challenge of START in the A 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.

Check out the poems from last week by clicking HERE for all the links in one post.


****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.

    • 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.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 42: (CARE) in the D rhyme line.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (ROUGH and Season). and this Décima Challenge of CARE in the D 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.
  • For last week’s Décima Poets’ poems written for the prompt for SHIMMER, click HERE for all their links in one post. A good opportunity to check out some examples of Décima.

****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 blow.

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.

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.
