Know not the seeds you wish to sow
Sow answers that you wish to know
Live mistakes and self-forgive
Forgive the follies that we live
Repair the pain and cold despair
Despair can’t be where there’s repair.
DFC 2014 - 10. Repair
Harder than it looks. 

~

This is for 
ProjectDFC's December Form Challenge. 

This is Day 10: The Mirror Sestet

The Mirror Sestet was created by Shelley A. Cephas. It comprises of one or more 6-line
stanzas. The guidelines are as follows:

Line 1: First word and last word rhyme.
Line 2: First word = last word of Line 1. Last word = first word of Line 1.
Line 3: First word and last word rhyme.
Line 4: First word = last word of Line 3. Last word = first word of Line 3.
Line 5: First word and last word rhyme.
Line 6: First word = last word of Line 5. Last word = first word of Line 5.

This can also be done without rhyme so ignoring all rhyme on odd numbered lines.

Go to this thumb ->  DFC 2014 IS HERE!Every single year I say that I will get this organised way earlier, and every year I spent 2 or more days raging at a screen.
But it is so rewarding to see you all do this and it's those feelings are always very short-lived so I keep doing it year after year.
This year featuring 31 forms that I haven't featured before. I went hunting for forms and had a lot of fun.

                   Please believe
              Not in those who deceive
         And destroy every dream within you

They’d despair if they knew; after all you've worked through
    Their opinions don’t matter; you’re starting anew

        And as sunshine dissipates the night
             Apathy clears from sight
                  You are light.
DFC 2014 - 9. Light
Second attempt. Not as good as the first but meh

This is for 
ProjectDFC's December Form Challenge. 

This is Day 9: The Trois-par-Huit

Trois-par-Huit or Three by Eight is a poem containing three stanzas totaling 8 lines.
It was created by Lorraine M Kanter.

The orientation can either be 3, 3, 2 OR 3, 2, 3. The syllabic count
builds and then shrinks (3, 6, 9, 12, 12, 9, 6, 3).

It is meant to be centred on the page. The last line is the title of the poem and
summarises the content of the poem.

The rhyme scheme is: aab, bbc, cc OR aab, bb, ccc

Stand strong dear,
Be the immovable oak,
Facing thousands of storms to remain

A canopy of shelter, shielding all below
Its structures create ecosystems of its own

As the oak won’t cower from the rains
Remember what you know,
You own fear.
The Oak
My own little self pep talk.

This was my first attempt at the Trois-par-Huit but I got the rhyme scheme all wrong. I can't change this cause it's perfect as it is.

So it's just a poem.


Loading...
Wild weather wakes and will not wane,
Its torrid tempest shall sustain
Foul blows of hail and pelting rain,
Sleet slashes; smashing window panes
As cars are caught in flood drifts deep
Through crevasses the water creeps.

Enraptured by light’s flurried dance,
The trees sway in hypnotic trance,
One flash of mighty sky fire’s lance,
Illuminates the whole expanse
And thunder’s rumbling roar reminds,
That shelter one must quickly find.

Whipping winds wail – wearing down,
Boughs and branches bluster ‘round,
Debris is strewn across the ground,
A banshee’s shrieks the only sound
As gales grip, rip at all that stands
This is the life in monsoon lands.
Every single year I say that I will get this organised way earlier, and every year I spent 2 or more days raging at a screen.

But it is so rewarding to see you all do this and it's those feelings are always very short-lived so I keep doing it year after year.

Hey guys! I'm Sam a.k.a kiwi-damnation.

I am a massage therapist by day and artist by night. I love to create in many different ways and especially enjoy the incredible world of fixed form poetry. I run a group ProjectDFC devoted to preserving the art of fixed form poetry and bringing you all along for the ride.

Seriously though, I love dA and all it represents and I look forward to reading/gazing upon all of your art. You all amaze me. Thank you for the privilege of sharing this journey with you.

Aaaaand you can find my photography on kiwi-damnation-stock
