NaPoWriMo #14: A “San-San” Poem — Starlight Flamenco

Leave a comment

flamenco-duendeOkay.  It’s payback time because I have written so many unrhymed, free form poems.  Today we are supposed to write a “san san” poem.  It is supposedly a Chinese poetry form that uses three images, phrases or ideas, repeated three times in a very specific rhyme scheme, a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.    And it was bloody difficult to compose.

Starlight Flamenco

Under a frosty star-lit sky
they cling together, one fiery heart —
two lovers engage their spiral dance.

Twin flames, flying high
They dance united, fearing to part
two lovers dance through the night.

Fearing none, they take a chance
Two fiery lovers under star light.
