Sugar Cane Candy ~ A Postcard for NaPoWriMo Day 7

©13 Candy Cane Sugar 1 sml6x



where is the palm sugar pace in my rhyme?

the sweetness that takes the long night away

honey that runs wild and free over time

inside or outside where ever I play

nectar that calls out the sunlight divine

bright words that return the long light of day

these are the baubles much more than odd toys

yet still I’ll discount this saccharine noise

My response to the National Poetry Writing Month Day 8 prompt “. . . . write a poem in Ottava Rima—a rhyme scheme of a-b-a-b-a-b-a-b-c-c and iambic pentameter” on NaPoWriMo—April 2013. 

In essence this is a postcard comment on my ability to write Ottava Rima—with a slight nod toward humor. Clearly Ottava Rima is out of my comfort bubble. Still it’s fun to attempt because it increases my appreciation for those who do it well and with a sense of ease. 

Be fun—Write Haiku or other Poetry every day in April – Aloha
