A Whisper Sets Dreams Adrift

A Whisper Sets Dreams Adrift

“Hush”, the gentle breeze softly sings.

Under it’s spell, rich, green boughs sway

Rocking, rocking the day away.

The last hue, pink, to darkness clings

As the birds tuck away their wings.

Peppered is the sky with wings swift

As the nightfall symphonies lift.

The cosmos’ ebony consumes.

Moonlit honeysuckle perfumes.

“Hush”, a whisper sets dreams adrift.

I wrote this poem in response to Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 45. We were asked to use the word SWIFT in the C rhyme line.

If you are new to the décima style:


  1. There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme.
  2. 8 syllables per line.
  3. There is a SET RHYMING PATTERN we must stick to. ABBAACCDDC OR  two stanzas of ABBA/ACCDDC.

I enjoy writing about our homeschool adventures, as well as nature and sharing recipes.
