Cyhydedd Naw Ban: Fixation

Fear the love that does not grow each day
Where stagnate buds wilt into decay
petrified petals screech vexation
and tortured roots become fixation

Clarity forms in stark concession
true love is not found in obsession

The stanza has an even number of lines.

    1. Thank you. I like that you can have 10 line, 4 line, 6 line stazas all mixed together in one poem and as long as they rhyme with another line you can go crazy.

    1. Similar topic, different approach. You had far more passion, made mine sound matter of fact. Quite the coincidence we are in sync. How far ahead are you with posts at the moment? I’m doing valentines week. πŸ€”πŸ’š

      2. I only post once a day. You post at least twice. Which means you must have dozens more posts scheduled πŸ˜‰ way ahead of me, little one πŸ’š

    1. Thank you. A few left. I found about 15 forms and selected 7 I thought I could manage.
      The response has been great. Maybe I’ll do another week of Welsh poetry forms later this year πŸ‘

      1. I went through Japanese forms in November I think. There are plenty of those so I’ll be revisiting them later this year as well.
        I have Irish forms next week, maybe you might find something there as well πŸ˜‰
        Good luck with the Welsh πŸ‘
