A Dinghy Decima

Inspired by Mo Daley to write a decima, a form with ten lines, 8 syllables per line, rhyme scheme ABBAACCDCC on any chosen topic 

A Dinghy Decima

calming lake winds whisper my name 

my heart strings pull toward the shore 

such beckoning I can’t ignore 

(wild inner spirit all but tame)

when gypsy sirens lured, I came 

blue flowered kayak- Hippie Soul

and picnic cooler for the shoal

a backward launch to self propel 

a tranquil paddle my day’s goal

as nature’s virtues I extol
