Robbie’s Inspiration – Saddle-up Saloon; Colleen’s Double Ennead challenge

Colleen’s challenge this month: Let’s celebrate Halloween together by writing a persona poem in the style of a double ennead. Be creative! Let your imagination run wild! Have fun! You can find her post here: https://carrotranch.com/2021/10/18/saddle-up-saloon-colleens-doubleennead-challenge-no-9/

This task proved to be a little more challenging than I anticipated, but I have managed to write the poem below that goes with my Happy Holiday Halloween Hextravaganza.

Happy Holiday Halloween Hextravaganza

Hard, disapproving eyes

View my family

Our difference not readily accepted

By your society

How we pity you

A small-minded approach

Is so limiting

Freedoms we enjoy, prohibited to you

Exploration of unusual places

By the moon’s pale light

Sea serpent splashes about

We watch full of glee

As the cat escapes a muddy green shower

And baby burns the grass

Do you have any fun?

      1. I think the first time is hard, but after that it gets easier. Once you get the hang of it, you can write 99 syllables in whatever way you want. Thanks for joining in, Robbie. You did so good on you Halloween houses. ❤

  1. Robbie – you really embrace challenges with eloquence and determination. I LOVED this poem and can only imagine how much thought went into choosing the words. I especially enjoyed how you connected your poem to Halloween and the gingerbread baking challenge.
