Today’s challenge prompt asks us to “write a ruba’i. What’s that? Well, it’s a Persian form — multipe stanzas in the ruba’i form are a rubaiyat, as in The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Basically, a ruba’i is a four-line stanza, with a rhyme scheme of AABA.”
I dedicate my ruba’i to my love of orchids :D
It’s beautiful in lovely shades,
in tropical and temperate glades.
Orchids are subtly sweet,
their beauty never fades.
On the mantle or the kitchen sink,
my pretty orchids seldom drink.
They beautify my cozy world.
Orchids are the best I think.
