NaPoWriMo #8: What Rhymes with Indigo?

1 Comment

irisToday’s NaPoWriMo Prompt:  Flowers.

Today’s Daily Post Prompt:  “Tricky” — and trust me, blank verse is tricky.

Personal Goal:  Blank verse (mostly iambic pentameter with no end word rhyme scheme).

What Rhymes with Indigo?

I cannot write a song in honor of
the iris — violet and weirdly schemed,–
no less because they seem to come from some
exotic world or from deep within a
twisted mind.  Purple standards, golden falls
swirl and loop a convoluted ballet.
I cannot write a verse to laud and praise
the iris– since purple and indigo
do not seem to have words that fully rhyme.
