A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 30 June 2018 – Lucky Dip!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Decuain. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Decuain?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
The Decuain (pronounced deck•won), created by Shelley A. Cephas, is a short poem made up of 10 lines, which can be written on any subject. There are 10 syllables per line and the poem is written in iambic pentameter.
There are 3 set choices of rhyme scheme:
ababbcbcaa, ababbcbcbb, or ababbcbccc
For a longer Decuain poem, add more stanzas for a double, triple, quatruple, etc. Decuain.
Example of Decuain
Our dearest Susan has a tender heart,
a mother who’s devoted to her son,
her love and wisdom to him she’ll impart,
so when they are together they have fun;
I know their love shall never come undone.
She’s special to her friends and family,
a gift from God, who’s loved by everyone
for truly she is blessed with dignity,
in this I’m sure that we would all agree
because I know she has been good to me.
