a rainbow in words- 25th

Freedom

Spirit of the animal
Purring like a beast
Midnight blue, melodic roar
I’ve found inner peace
Demonic release
Cruising shadowed darkened streets
Supersonic beast

Seguidilla

Seguidilla is one of those poetic forms that started off as a song before eventually settling on an established poetic form. Specifically, seguidilla began as a dance song.

So here are the basic rules:

  • 7-line poem
  • Syllable count for each line is 7-5-7-5-5-7-5
  • One assonance rhyme between lines 2 and 4; another one between lines 5 and 7
  • Pause between lines 4 and 5–usually an end stop
  • Also, the tone or focus changes between lines 4 and 5 as well
