I enjoyed writing last week’s terza rima. This week, Linda’s challenging us to write ubi sunt. It’s Latin, and literally means ‘Where have they gone’. We have to use at least 3 of these words: Peachy, illumination, graphite, rattlesnake, spring, octopus, pizzazz, but the form of the poem is up to us. One suggestion was a sixain, and I’ve never written one of those, so I thought I’d try it.
With pizzazz we studied and worshipped God,
Learning and growing together:
We shared our lives and the bond was deep;
From spring to spring we continued to meet –
We’d go out of our way for each other:
It was peachy and won’t be easily forgot.
