Gold – Décima

Sun Through Leaves

I don’t know what I’d do with gold
unless it’s for a wedding ring.
A garden would be more my thing
with plants whose leaves were green and bold.
Between us there’s much fruit to hold.
We offer praise and share our meals.
We watch and pray. The truth reveals
our next assignments. See the ways
this paradise fulfills our days
and how each day renews and heals.


Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “gold” to be used in an A line of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC.

Also this week Eugenia offers the prompt “paradise”.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. That is one gorgeous picture of green leaves. I absolutely love this poem and agree with the perspective. It is deeply beautiful. Love this – We watch and pray. The truth reveals
    our next assignments – though love it entirely.

  2. There is much more to life than material things. The real gifts in life are from nature and her beauty. I love the perspective of this piece, and thank you so much for joining in, Frank.
