Ronovan writes #Decima #Poetry challenge #38 The boxer’s tale

A story I just need to tell

may be of interest to you

or not, no matter, just we two

will know the tale of how I fell

into the realm of personal hell.

It started on that fateful night

when I received my first invite

to make a large amount of cash

so I thought I’d have a bash

I only had to win the fight.

She is homeward bound
canvas cracks, the lanterns sway
lines strain in the sheave

Ronovan writes #Decima poetry challenge #37 The chapel on the hill (Brentor)

For Dartmoor they had forecast snow

But there was one place I should see

That was of interest to me

I made my mind up we should go

Might not be able tomorrow

So then we loaded up the car

No local buses went that far

I’d never visited before

The famous church on old Brentor

Through the ages a shining star

Locked doors should open
for those who would seek solace
in these troubled times

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #188 Languid

Adopting my favourite languid pose

I casually glanced across the floor

All eyes fixed upon the door

as though waiting for it to close

The air was charged, tensions high,

no one breathed or even dared

to move, whilst a host of people stared

in awe at the now departing pair

so jealous of their regal air

Crispina’s Creative Challenge #110

As I took a stroll down Lambeth way

I looked up and to my surprise

I thought,”Well, he is having a bad day,

that poor elf has been crucified.”

So when I asked if he was okay

He said,”I’m glad my wrists are tied,

They hung me up here for a reason

but they seem to have the wrong season.”

Ronovan writes #Decima poetry challenge #36 “Village mystery”

I paid a visit to Morgan

A player of the church organ

I thought that he might need a lift

So I thought I would take a gift

My idea was a poor one

For when I arrived at his place

Outside the door was his wife Grace

She greeted me then gave a sigh

And she told me the reason why

He had vanished without a trace.

Though considered mad

the sane did not condemn his

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #187 #Bargain hunter

At the auction I bought a nice antique

I thought I had got a real bargain

My wife looked at it and said it looked a bit bleak

She wouldn’t like it in her garden

I said concrete statues are now on trend

Her doubting me started to niggle

She would not believe what I had to spend

It was then that she started to giggle

Ronovan writes #Decima challenge #35

When late at night there came a knock

before getting up I looked at the clock.

It clearly showed it was well past ten

We weren’t used to getting any callers then

My wife said, “Don’t you open that lock.

You can never tell who it might be,

just go upstairs, from the window you’ll see

if we can then safely open the door

then we will need to worry no more.

While you’re upstairs I will find the key.”
