~::~ Hopes Affray ~::~ 

Fog unfurls, diurnal draws close

My soul awakens, dawn of night

Feeble stars arise at twilight

 

Many years, I have lain to doze

Awaiting influx yet today

Advents deceive, to my dismay

 

Standing there with a blood red rose

Patience ruffle and surrender

Hopes affray, emotions tender

 

Destiny belies, as life slows

Worthlessness slyly raises head

I recline, again on death-bed

Constanza

The Constanza, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of five or more 3-line stanzas.  Each line has a set meter of eight syllables. The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.

 

Rhyme scheme: a/b/b, a/c/c, a/d/d, a/e/e, a/f/f………etc.

    A rather difficult rhyme scheme. And a totally rockin one! :-)
    The poem which gets created by reading the first lines of each stanza in succession is just wonderful. Kudos!! :-)
