I find poems with internal rhyme tough to write, you need to take care of so many things. Donโ€™t exceed syllable count, donโ€™t force the rhyme, keep the slow smooth, no filler words … ahhh … but still whatโ€™s better than a good challenge. Here’s a dedication to Mother Earth in the form of Essence.

Flora and sandy shores,
Kookaburra adores.

Eucalyptus stands tall
While Platypus enthral

Leo looks down from high
Moonlight surrounds the sky

Frail womb of abandoned land
yester’s bloom, sleeps on sand,

spring smothered by concrete,
limp wings, desperately plead,

summer steadily blaze,
dissolving winter’s grace.

Kookaburra watching over Pacific Ocean

Essence is a short structured form of two lines. Each line has six syllable, with end rhyme and internal rhyme.

  1. Stopping by on the 6th day of the #challenge, Congratulations on your blog. I'm writing about gardening and related topics if you have time or interest. Come see me.

  2. Beautiful! "spring smothered by concrete" – what an image you have painted here with words. You may find it tough to write this kind of poem, but the result is absolutely great!
