A Diatelle – Encounter

The first time I published something went wrong, so trying to reblog.

RuthKlein’s Scribbles

I am going to try to write a Diatelle as introduced by Colleen Chesebro. A diatelle which has the syllable count and rhyming scheme like this: 1a 2b 3b 4c 6b 8c 10c 12a 10c 8c 6b 4c 3b 2b 1a. It will be challenging and I hope I can make it work. I will use the word Encounter. I started this to write for FOWC on Sept 6, but I got busy.

I  started working on this pre Sept 16 and I finished last night. This was a challenge!

The Encounter


by chance



exciting circumstance

self-indulgence intemperance

challenging journey brazen decadence

finger pointing confrontation, indiscreet

unfortunate incident, just querulous

regrettable unpleasantness

laughable impasse

then gentleness

take a chance
