Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 39: (CONTRAST) in the A rhyme line.

Looking Ahead

Looking outside at the contrast 
of morning and evening are there 
it is not that I even care 
The day before is now the past 
the day ahead might be my last 
I live to see beauty today 
and breath some more in if I may 
knowing for me there is still hope 
and I will be able to cope 
with whatever comes on my way.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 31: (ONE) in the A rhyme line

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.

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 line words. Then the other 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.

100 Word Wednesday: 171


a 10×10/Vocabularicon poem:×10-vocabularicon-poem/

Our Land is Life

We walk down the rows together tonight  
To find the treasures that grow in the field  
To bring us all out to the working land  
To support those who rely on the ground  
As the workers are sent quietly home 
The growers stand out to provide for us  
The ground offers golden life to enjoy  
The sun offers us health for life and growth  
We will praise the land for what it gives us  
We can all come together with nature.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 28 (FATE) This week, it’s the B rhyme line.



When we sit upon our own shelf 

We look at our lives and our fate 

We wonder the time and the date 

It’s time to reflect on yourself 

Ponder like that creepy old elf 

Are we doing the right things now? 

Can we happily take a bow? 

Living a life with honesty 

Moving forward with clarity? 

“I’ll do what I must” is my vow.

Grow – A Decima

Written for Ronovan Writes:

Future Life

With each passing day I learn more  
I have to think about my life  
I don’t know if I’ll be a wife  
I try to pray and not ignore  
the signs that make me do adore  
The things that help so we can grow  
I’d like to find a way to know  
How the things I would like to find  
How to be a person who’s kind  
I only want my love to flow.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 10 (SENSE). This week, it’s the D rhyme spot.

I would love to give you a sense of what this challenge is asking, but it is super confusing and I will have to reread it, again…Anyhow, check out the details on Ronovan Writes:

Recalling your day

Today was a day to recall 

The great things of your yesterday 

By watching all things that you say 

Like trying to not drop the ball 

Which could lead to your giant fall. 

So live with your happiness now 

It’s cheaper than buying a cow 

Your senses will help lead the way 

your story just won’t go astray 

Now lay down your cents, wipe your brow.

**I have no idea if this is correct but I believe each line is eight syllables and I used sense in the third to last line and the synonym in the last line**
