Deckard’s Lament

She knows not when her time will end
Tomorrow or when all Earth rends?
Or just until Time’s hands align
But until then I’ll call her mine

She lives, she loves, in unknown span
I oft forget she’s not human
What makes her whole she redefines
But until then I’ll call her mine

Should she die first I’ll feel the pain
And I’ll be lost like tears in rain
She may go first by cruel design
But until then I’ll call her mine

She knows not when her time will end
But until then I’ll call her mine

Written for today’s
Real Toads Prompt for Today: Monday – Soviet Kitsch Where we’re invited to write a poem based on a sci-fi movie poster. We were given a choice of amazing posters from classic Sci-Fi movies in the soviet union as inspiration, or to choose a different poster found online. It’s not as classic as the Soviet kitsch posters, but my muse stopped searching the moment it saw:

National Poetry Writing Month 2016 – Day 11

Today’s poetic form: Kyrielle Sonnet

A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain, usually but not always appearing as the last line of each stanza. Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.
