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.
