alive ~ a decima

pollen to petal

…while flailing fires of feelings fight
daring to keep dreams adrift
floating on as life’s precious gift
of the next or last breath burns bright
lighting up all that’s true and right
with a stubborn will to survive
beyond the everyday and thrive
to be human in every way
be thrilled to work and dance and play and beguiled to keep hope alive…

travels in the wild ~ a decima

music travels weird in my wild

white whimsical mind; yellows seep

whenever hues of jazz and blues weep

silver rivulets of rhythms mild,

mauves and purples flash a shy smile

strumming pink on joyous eardrums

chiming ta- ta-rum-pum-pums

to heartbeats running unstable

as crescendo hushes hazel

and soul’s rhapsody blushes plum

Ronovan’s Decima Challenge – Stable in D rhyme abbaaccddc

Fizz ~ a decina

Awoken by the sound of fizz

I peeped through my lashes of sleep

plucked up temerity to peep

and found my friends thrilled to their gills

laughing loud over lagerfills

They saw me on the top of the stairs

and aimed a can up in the air

the draught brought the beer straight to me

which I caught with dexterity

This sip of fizz beyond compare

Lynn’s Tuesday picture prompt

FOWC temerity

dream up ~ a decima

dream up a path when you’re on one

can you hear your future calling

the air is crisp and compelling

instinct following feet for fun

senses rush to do the undone

somehow knowing this wild new start

will dance to the beat of your heart

as your journey unfolds to worlds

and the buds of your dreams unfurl

you’ll thank life ~ your soul’s work of art
