dVerse Poetics -Candles and Lights: Legend

Flickering flame battles lingering night

Prometheus’ gift drives off human fright

Nox rumbles, her fury ever thwarted

By family’s grace and Apollo’s light

poetry, dversepoets

For dVerse’s Poetics. This week is about Candles and Lights. I decided to try my hand at creating a Rubaiyat Quatrain, popularized by Edward FitzGerald and based on Persian poetry. It is characterized by rhyming the first, second, and last lines, while the third line does not rhyme with the other three (AABA).

Head on over to dVerse and read some great poets. Join in if inspiration strikes!

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!
