I m prone to making things difficult for myself: combining the heteroclite collection of words in Brenda’s Wordle with a rhyming form chosen from today’s Octpowrimo prompt: My iambs are hardly classic, but the poem can certainly be read as 4 stressed syllables to the line.
|The Duo-rhyme, a poetic form created by Mary L. Ports, is a 10 or 12-line poem, with the first two and last two lines having the same rhyme scheme, and the center of the poem (lines #3 through #8 or #10) having their own separate monorhyme scheme, written in iambic tetrameter with a rhyme scheme: 10-line:a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a and 12-line: a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a. adapted from the definition at Shadow Poetry|
In inky black of moonless night
waking dreams of immeasurable light
I bend my vision of this world of clay
erode the fear that the dark will stay,
in the knowledge that the day
will come at last to laugh and play
still safe and yet we yearn to stray,
gathering pebbles where they lay
bathed in sunshine, along the bay
skipping and splashing through the spray
as we glory in earthly sight,
awaiting time for heavenward flight.
