This is another post from February 2013. I posted poetry prompts every week and wanted to try out different poetry forms. This one is quite interesting. Maybe it inspires you to try and write a decastich too 🙂 :
Not enough C so there we are at D: Decastich
There is not a lot of information about the Decastich. According to The Poets Garret it is a poem of 10 lines and you can do with it what you want. Rhyme or no rhyme, syllable pattern or no pattern….. you get the gist.
That one should be fun then :-)!
Here is my take:
Those words don’t come easy anymore
My mind hard as a rock!
Being poetic became such a chore
Where’s that muse of mine?
I need this little something now
That creative sparkle
Can hardly take those words as a pow
They would not bloom.
Tomorrow maybe there’s more words to come
and a new one shines!
