Welcome to the Décima Poetry Challenge. Each week we’ll be attempting a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem.https://ronovanwrites.com/2020/11/11/ronovan-writes-decima-poetry-challenge-prompt-no-31-one-in-the-a-rhyme-line/
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.
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.
Here is the quick description of a Décima:
There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme. 8 syllables.
There is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to. abbaaccddc
The prompt word given (in the post heading) must appear at the end of one of the given rhyme lines, either A, B, C, or D.
For today’s challenge, the word ONE must be one of the A line words. Then the other A line(s) word(s) must rhyme with ONE.
The Tequila Farmer
Out behind the house is the one
Who knows how to have a good time
Not without tequila and lime
But a lot of laughs and be done
A place to be happy and fun
The farmer knows where you all stand
With the invite onto his land
He intends to see tons of smiles
When inviting folks from all miles
It’d be nice to invite a band.
