In prairie dreams skies look bluer The white clouds drift and fade away. Day is calling from the doorway, With a promise of adventure.
In the distance rests my future, Beyond dark worries of the night. Dreams are calling from bright sunlight, Past the shadows, beyond the fence. Chasing dreams only I can sense With arms outstretched, my soul takes flight!
“Décima” (also known as Espinel) is a Spanish style or form of musical poetry that contains 10 lines of eight syllables. The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc. The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.
Just a rock placed on a wind-swept post, Somewhat odd and out of place. Before it sat on a prairie fence, It rested from its’ seismic race. Always watched by sun and sky, Guarded by sharp thistles and thorns. Lonely now and all alone, Lifted high in a awkward pose. A little piece of a farmer’s thought, This summer’s whimsy, fantasy art.
