It’s the half-way mark! Day 15 of the NaPoWriMo poetry challenge…


Today is day 15 of the NaPoWriMo poetry challenge. I’m halfway there!

Today’s challenge prompt asks us to write a poem in terza rima. “This form was invented by Dante, and used in The Divine Comedy. It consists of three-line stanzas, with a “chained” rhyme scheme. The first stanza is ABA, the second is BCB, the third is CDC, and so on. No particular meter is necessary, but English poets have tended to default to iambic pentameter (iambic pentameter is like the Microsoft Windows of English poetry). One common way of ending a terza rima poem is with a single line standing on its own, rhyming with the middle line of the preceding three-line stanza.”

Here is my poem. :D

My Lover’s heart is strong and fine

He really is a treat.

Random acts with no design

Just thoughtful, kind and sweet.

Sometimes I’m tired or feel unwell

And he rubs my feet.

 

Deed, not words do tell.

  1. This is wonderful! I love the theme that it is actions, not words, that truly show who a person is and how they feel. Few things compare to the magnificence of having your feet rubbed! :D Your poetry always has this amazing rhythm to it. It flows so perfectly!
