A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 28 November 2020!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Costanza. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Costanza?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
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.
Example of a Vers Beaucoup
Point of reference never came.
I waited eons just to see
The clever end of destiny.
To me it always looks the same. . .
Though gender changes time to time
Salacious souls we re-define.
The numbers tell what’s in the name.
Let intuition’s second sight
Guide the lost toward heaven’s flight.
Are we the fools and life’s a game?
We seem to dwell on other’s flaws
A tune well played by karmic laws.
We endure life’s eternal flame.
To live and learn can be sublime;
Our birth and death are both divine.
