    This poetic challenge features one of my favorite forms included in the Poetry-Defined section of JPiC... The CinqTroisDecaLa Rhyme will challenge your poetic expertise and flexibility, while enticing your poetic juices to flow.

    This challenge will be used as a test-run for the Poetry-Defined website, as well as the Poetic Type Published section here on JPiC, and will culminate in a poll/vote of the favorite 2 pieces.


    CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION:

    Beneath is a beautiful photograph aptly entitled The Last One, which appears in the Poetry of the Visual section of JPS. Cordially provided by photographer Ian Williamson, The Last One appears with a thumbnail version --- just to whet your appetite of course. :chuckle:

    CHALLENGE GOAL:
    I mock my self; shedding sorrow laughs of hindsight
    Courage sees naught the unshed tear that threatens my inside
    (My insight a faith wallowing in prepaid pain)
    Yet joy cometh in the mourning

    The above 4-line piece is what I wrote to be featured alongside Ian's photograph collection.

    The theme of that piece is "From Nothing To Something..." The challenge is to write a CinqTroisDecaLa rhyme featuring similar theme. Not only must you use this motif, you must also use The Last One photo as inspiration/motivation AND you must also include three of the following words and/or phrases within your poem:

    • strawberry fruit
    • seed
    • pink flesh
    • sweet
    • chocolate


    Good luck! Have fun AND Happy Posting!

    JPiC Moderating Team.

    This is one heck of a Challenge MsJ & Alan! But I think I am up to it! It may not win any prizes, but I think it will get a few chuckles.


    EAT ME

    I was nothing when first you found me, all dirty in the field.
    My sweet potential you saw at once and so to you I yield.
    You took me home and cleaned me up, my red beauty you did see.
    I can sense the wanton lust, the desire you have for me.
    Though greatly tempted you hold back, knowing I'm not ready yet.
    You gently lay me down, then rise, the chocolate sauce to get.
    You spread my bottom with the sauce, making it gooey and wet.
    You still do not taste my pink flesh, your willpower has been steeled.
    Come, let my seed and juicy nectar flow out, unbound and free.
    Strawberry fruit, a work of art once the chocolate has set.

    TY Ladies! But where are YOUR entries to this?!!
    LOL @ me. I did not realize until AFTER I had posted that I didn't have to use ALL of the words in the list! You might want to keep that in mind if you try this challenge. It sure is a stimulating one!

    Okie Dokie MS TREE - but really I've kind resigned my self to being Webmistress lately, rather than Poet Webmistress LOL + I've been experiencing something so very dreadful lately = Writer's Block :p

    Hope and Chocolate

    You planted a seed, I grew. Now I want to be free of you.
    Our lives back then, they weren't so sweet, the guys, drugs; no food to eat.
    I was scared. Just wanted to be held, but you were never there.
    I'd close my eyes and hope to be far away from this dark place.
    Yet each time I woke-was still here. Has God forgotten bout me?
    Naw, I must have a purpose; what lies ahead out there for me?
    I am not here to suffer, I am good, like Strawberry fruit.
    I must go now, this seed has grown, this- No longer is my home.
    I'm steppin out, trying something new and fresh, like Chocolate.

    Hey V - I'm loving this poem - you've done well with the challenge words, but it's not quite a CinqTroisDecaLa Rhyme... The rhyme schematic for the style is aabbccabc - The syllable count of your lines (15) is correct though...

    Anyway - back on topic :p ---- This piece is quite sweet - I'm loving the confidence - especially the very last line:

    Allright - I hear ya - You go Girl ;)
    Very nice piece of poetry!

    Jacquii.

    TY Ms J - I missed that part I guess, it was a challenge all the same, you see I used all but one of the words from the list.
    Erik TY 4 your comments, U know poetry is about being able to use anything and make it work for you. :)
    Lanaia- Ty, you are very kind. Ms J puts some hard stuff out there, try them sometime. They turn out to be quite fun though- I must admit.....

    This was indeed one of the most exciting challenges for me to attempt.......having said that, and thinking about Vodka Slayer's vampire story, and the photograph.......I attempt an abstract CinqTroisDecaLa rhyme.

    Strawberry Decay

    Ancient seed, of a soul colored claret, when he came to me
    Alas came the day, my mortality, no longer reign free
    I partake of sweet revelries, strawberry of the unknown
    Tantalizing aromas, as I compliment your neck bone
    Your breath pulsates heavily, as we succumb to wanton flesh
    Taste of human essence, a copious harvest, savors fresh
    You slide into Utopia's Shangrila, feeding pink flesh
    You spin a web of geometric pearls in and out of me
    So fine the pronounced arteries of young men, not fully grown
    Slumber deep my love for I've ingested you, at your request​

    Hey MS KIM - I've got to say the CinqTroisDecaLa Rhyme is by far one of my favorite forms... And you've written JUST LOVELY! very nice piece indeed. Kinda erotic flavor - Like MS SEBBY's vampire tale:

    That very last line "at your request" ---- hmmmmm now that's a bit of eroticism - Possibly you know of my daydream of being utterly devoured by a HANDSOME and totally poetic Vampire?

    I like this one KIM - Great write!

    Jacquii.

    Well, here is my humble offering...I hope I got the beat and all that stuff right, Ms. J!

    Strawberry Lov...er

    The gardens abound…crystal jewels on thy leafy green crown
    my love delights….my heart…a splendor in velvety red gown
    forsooth! dear one…lie gently down…upon this bed of silk
    Austrian lace adorns thy bed …lie clear and crisp …such precious ilk
    tender pink flesh….tiny love bites…juices licked and tongue caressed
    sweet, aaah!... so sweet, lingering on my quivering…lips…so fresh!
    dream of layered galaxies… twinkling stars …a strawberry quest!
    soft feathered strokes …nourished and pure…futures dared …bedecked in brown
    chocolate spa, relaxed … silky, sliding, dipping slowly in …milk?
    awash with sticky cocoa… buttery drops entrap each guest!

    ((whispers --- hmmm - I think someone thinks I'm a poetry snob --- evil frown))
    Well - I suppose in a way I am - which makes this piece just that much more satisfying MS THERESE :yes3: -- I'm actually a bit surprised at how "romantic" and "ENDEARING" your write is:
    :wow: = Nice stuff indeed!
    Thanx for the sharing!

    Jacquii.


    ALSO an FYI:

    If ever I find my Muse
    I shall endeavor a write
    about strawberry fruit :blush2:
