Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #24
“Look” In the C rhyme line

Art from Crate&Barrel

As family sagas are spun
Twisting turns of a story line.
Visions judged, challenges align
Chapters finished, others begun.

Someone’s vision that judged and done
Began journey without a look
Over mountains, a brand new nook.
Like most stories, beginnings start
Seeking truths, without a chart.
A never ending storybook.

Bell Ringer

Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #22
“Blend” In the A rhyme line

Braving the cold by stores’ front end,
Faithful servant in Christmas corps.
Tattered coat hard to ignore,
Through rain and snow, he must contend!

Among shoppers, he doesn’t blend.
Seek pennies for smiles – fair exchange
Into his bucket, gathered change
Charities’ Christmas bell ringer.
Thru the season he will linger,
Gathering bits of your loose change

Outhouse Blues

Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #21
“Tip” In D rhyme line

On the prairie stood the small shed
Fragrant outpost now left alone.
Special building, to some a throne
Sanctuary behind homestead.

Crescent moon, all that need be said!
Sear and Roebuck, the weekly news,
Printed daydreams, crumpled views,
Alley Oop, weekly comics strips,
And contemplation – farmhouse tips.
Harkens back to old Outhouse Blues.
