Even though I am not following the napowrimo.net prompts, I am attempting to write more poetry especially since this is poetry month.
I was also invited to write some poetry for A Different Perspective for the NPM 22 Flex Scavenger Hunt.
Today I will attempt a decima using the theme roses. This was hard and is rough, but I’ll leave it as is.
<A decima> is a 10-liner with 8 syllables per line in the following rhyme pattern: abbaaccddchttps://www.writersdigest.com/write-better-poetry/decima-poetic-forms
roses are red violets blue
is part of a rhyme we may know
why talk about flowers that grow
rose allergy feels like the flu
what a shame, ‘cause they’re pretty too
please don’t send me a rose bouquet
friends will acquire, to your dismay
they’re fine if they stay on the vine
please understand and do not whine
save yourself time and disarray
