Soham and I

DÉCIM POETRY CHALLENGE – Ronovan


Each week we need to attempt a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem,
with a given prompt word for a specific rhyme line.
This is my first time in the challenge and also in this Poetry form.
More about Espinela or Décima poem, can be found here.

About the form,
There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme with 8 syllables in each line.
There is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to – abbaaccddc

For this week’s challenge, the word TRUE must be one of the line words. Then the other line(s) word(s) must rhyme with TRUE.

I don’t know how enjoyable the poem is. Had the limit of so many constraints and this is my first time in this kind of poetry. So please pardon if not good.

One morning I wrote a poem.
A simple straight poem it was,

With no “read between lines” and clause.
It would be read with a low -hum,

I wanted to show to Soham.
To him, with my poem, I flew,
I thought of scaring him with boo.
Startled he was, with prank of mine,
But kind to read without a whine.
The love for me from him is true.

    1. Hmmm.. it was confusing for me too.

      It is a poem with 10 lines. Each line will have a syllable count of 8.
      It has a rhyme scheme of abbaaccddc.
      For the challenge, one word will be given. And this time, the word is for ‘c’ of the rhyme scheme and the given word is ‘true’. So in our poem, we must write the 6th,7th and 10th line rhyming with word ‘true’ and one of these 3 lines should end up with the word ‘true’.

      I hope it is clear 🤭 or did I confuse you more? 🧐🧐
