2008 Form Challenges

#9 Cavatina

This form as its name suggests was formerly Italian and also emerged around the time of Francesco Petrarca, and like the French ran their poetry and music along similar repetitions of melody. Unlike all the other Italian poetry forms, this form never became popular in England.

The Italian form consists of a ten (10) syllable non rhyming line alternating with a four (4) syllable rhyming line, at least three (3) times and completed with a ten syllable line couplet. This will probably explain why the English never took it seriously because of it breaking up Iambic Pentameter with Iambic Dimeter and appearing to limp rather than flow. Peggy Nelson in her tribute to her mothers day shows the basic requirements:

She held me tight in her warm loving arms
Protecting me
She helped me walk and watched me fall through life
She nurtured me
She gave me life and held my hand when small
Love she gave me
She was always there when I had got hurt
Kissing my sores and cleaning up the dirt.

Peggy Nelson

You'll notice that Peggy used repetition rather than ryhme for emphasis making it a very powerful octave.
It should be emphasised at this point that regardless of the number of lines this form will always remain a Cavatina.
If for example it were to have 10 lines it would not become a Cavatina Decastich or Cavatina Sonnetina. Similarly if it had 14 lines it would not become a Cavatina Sonnet (Similarly Rondel Prime). It is however possible to change the rhyme scheme and have variants of, a. b. for a 14 line Cavatina, Ryter Roethicle gives an example below:
Idee Fixe (Obsession)

Find me lurking, a shadow in your dreams
Thoughts in your mind.
Feel light kisses from me from the darkness
Touch's of delight.
Sense me caressing you, I'm the lover
You cannot find
As your eyes half close in pleasure think of
Me in the night.
And with the light of dawn I will be gone
I won't be found
Seek where you may, I don't exist by day
A ghostly sprite.
Hidden in the shades of night I reside
Then no matter where, I'll be by your side.

Ryter Roethicle

and with this thought, if the 14 liner used the first rhyme line belongs to the upper line. the second the lower and the third independant or variants of that. Here is an Example:
Olympian Campaign

This morning day is dressed in shades of gray,
long trailing shrouds;
dull trees stand motionless, no whispering leaves
in silenced threat.
What happened to my colours overnight?
Soon comes the rain,
with thunder and sharp lightning, nature cries
from dripping clouds
as vicious winds shake heavy crowns apart.
Lest we forget
who has the power over life and death,
the gods campaign.
From the Olympus they pull at our strings,
if we but listened, we'd hear angels' wings.

Leny Roovers

If there is any requirement to exceed 14 lines then two stanzas or more would be preferable. A great example of this is Peggy's poem that was referenced earlier, in her challenge reply, you will be able to see this poem in its entirety. Another lovely example is Leny Roovers shown below:

Connected

You are the king ruling my inner heart,
I am your queen;
your name is on the pages of my mind,
on hallowed screen;
your voice within my ear guides me on stage
of all life's scenes.
With you I share the secrets of my soul,
under your loving gaze I play my role.

I am your ear when you unload your heart,
for you I care;
I am your anchor in the sea of life,
I will be there;
My touch will reach you countless leagues away,
I hear your prayer.
I'll search for you whenever you seem lost,
I'll be your lighthouse when your ship gets tossed.

Secret Love Notes

Cavatina Chain

Maryse Achong

Candy Man

I think of him as Mr. Bojangles,
Sammy Davis;
Small in stature, big talented was he,
Star of show biz;
A musician, singer, how he could dance,
The stage was his;
When he performed he did so with great flair,
That entertainer extraordinaire!

-----

Dad

You were my hero from the very start,
You'd sing to me;
We'd sit and watch clouds as they floated by
So lazily;
Your fav'rite tree the one that I loved most
, The gorgeous poui;
You taught me how to read, to cherish books,
And poetry.
You died but did not go alone, you took
A part of me.
Though long gone you've stayed in my heart and mind.
So much alive in those you've left behind.

-----

Decreed

One child per family is what they ruled,
They did not know
There'd come a time when they would regret this,
A crushing blow;
So many young lives lost in this earthquake
A nation's woe:
With flagging hopes they search for survivors
The going's slow.
Thousands of them have lost their only child,
Their grief and anger driving many wild.

-----

End Of Hope

The people of our island are enraged,
For Hope is dead;
She was raped, sodomized, her throat was slit,
We're filled with dread;
Her little body found in a cane field,
A bludgeoned head.
Her mother left her in her lover's care,
She says he took her with him everywhere.

-----

Namaste

The Indian Market is in town again,
I hope to go;
I revel in the display of the goods
They have on show;
I want to wear a sari at least once
That much I know.
The sights, the sounds, the smells, they're heavenly,
And I'm back in Agra, Bombay, Delhi.

-----

On Display

We stand before You each and every day
Completely bare,
No camouflage, disguises or façades,
We do not dare;
You know us from without and from within,
And still You care:
You listen to us when we're in distress
And in despair;
You give us love like nobody else can,
The most sincere,
You want us to return that love to You,
But not through fear.
Counsellor, Master, Friend, You answer all,
You're there for us, we only have to call.

-----

Small Recompense

"For what I've done Lord and what I've failed to do
I trust Your Love Lord, will see me through."


I bow my head, mouth the words silently,
You know my heart;
And though I have a long, long way to go,
I've made a start;
No easy task to try to pattern You;
But you impart
The guidelines; which I should try to follow
If I am smart.
You gave much and ask little in return,
How could I refuse to listen and learn?

-----

Whew

What to eat, that's something to think about,
Rotosserie?
Perhaps instead a well prepared buljol,
That sounds tasty;
Somebody else is suggesting pelau,
Or a curry;
All tempting, but then someone has to cook:
Call KFC;
If not then Pizza Hut will have to do
Too hot today to bake., broil, steam or stew.

-----

Your Time

I look at you and wonder how the years
Have flown so fast,
Just yesterday I held you in my arms,
That's in the past;
Today you offer a strong hand to hold,
What a contrast;
My nephews, fine young men, my pride in you
Is unsurpassed.
The time has come for you to take the lead,
The die is cast.
So much ahead for you to do, to see,
I pray that you'll be blessed abundantly

Watching

Like a swan she seemed to float and meet him,
beneath clear skies;
no one else mattered, it was evident,
within her eyes,
as she placed her tiny hand within his
you heard the sighs;
from the wedding guests that came to witness,
sweet compromise;
that began when two strangers fell in love,
young and so wise,
they pledged their devotion to always try,
knowing that their love, no one could deny

A Mothers Love

Many years passed quickly before my eyes
One promise I keep
Always abundant love for my three sons
At times I weep
Watching them grow strong and falter at times
My love they reap

Now I set back in my rocking chair
Watching their growth
Raising their children the best way they can
Appeasing oaths
I watch and applaud as they reach each dream
A promise my oath

A gifted child a wonderful mind
A priest he earned
He walked in a saints role for awhile
Yet drugs he yearned
Went down the wrong road, never to return
Wrong turn… a urn

Two sons left to love and watch grow older
Both served forces
Both married and have families to raise
Setting courses
Watching and hearing the greatest sons goals
My love endorsed

I am proud of my two sons, my special loves
With or without 'round, I think the world of

-----

Blazing Fires

Wild fires blazing, destroying homes
Trees and life's
Animals running wildly through towns
Worldly deaths strife
Fanning the fuel, winds causing disarray
Abundant rife
Efforts to contain quick burning items
growing fires
Highways closed from choking smoke and burning,
Phone line wires
Fire fighters spend days preserving what's,
Left to admire
Picking through charred remains in a dazed flash
I Watched the gorgeous forest turn to ash

-----

Earthquakes

Earthquakes have to eventually happen
Relieving stress
Underground plates everywhere are moving
Causing earths mess
Most people never give them any thought
They do confess
Unbeknownst to them until it gives way
And loved ones devoured from earthquakes fray

-----

Kids

Knowing words from them can make me feel whole
In life's let downs
Seeing their words written in scribbled notes
Erasing frowns
Each having their own personality
From rogues to clowns
What will their words bring later, as they grow?
Will they let more misguided mistakes flow?

-----

Musical Treat

I walked into the Buffet room tonight
Starving I was
My tummy was growling loud as lions
I heard applause
To my amusement the band was louder
I thought it was…
The band asked me politely not to eat
And join them on stage with my tuneful beat

-----

One Week Later

In the aftermath of Earthquakes dismay
Millions homeless
Tensions are high and fear remains in minds
Enduring helpless
Not enough room to hold five million souls
Most are tent less
Ground still rumbles, hundreds of aftershocks
Seeing desperate faces as they walk

-----

Recipes

Life can be so cruel and unsuspecting
Are you prepared?
What is your recipe to help you out
Have you shared?
Have you really been in harms way
You've been impaired?
What's life's unexplainable recipe?
If you knew the recipes, God you'd be.

-----

Sighing

We fantasized throughout the years on line,
With loves not meant
Hoping and wishing someday we would find
Loves great extent
In the beginning of winter we met
Both complacent
Emotions; feelings were gratifying
Will this years winter bring our love sighing?

-----

Storms

Dramatic destructive storms have arrived
Uprooting all
From tropical storms and hurricanes roar
Hail, dust fall
Thunder clapping, lighting causing more fires
No pause for lulls
Lifting and destroying once peaceful scenes
Nature's power, what message does it mean?

-----

Surprise Party For The Children

I have decorated the buffet room
For the children
Arranged all fun games for them to play and
Prizes to win
I see them looking at the yummy food,
And wearing grins
Hot Dogs, buns, beans and plenty of cake
Merry Christmas children, sung by mistake

-----

With Her, Without Her, I still Love Her

She held me tight in her warm loving arms
Protecting me
She helped me walk and watched me fall through life
She nurtured me
She gave me life and held my hand when small
Love she gave me
She was always there when I had got hurt
Kissing my sores and cleaning up the dirt.

A nurse she was when I got very sick
Caring Mother
Her love was always deep within my heart
Loved my Mother
At times we became very far apart
Still loved Mother
She understood I loved her through the years
Knowing we both shed happy and sad tears.

She was the best Offering love could bring
I miss her so
She was my best friend throughout all the years
I told her so
I wanted her to know how much I cared
She knew it so
Thanked her for every moment giving glee
She smiled and laughed the last day with me.

-----

Woe's Me

Do to the ever rising price of gas
I can not fart
Do to the earthquakes, my heart is no longer
It's fallen apart
Do to the floods, my brain drifts far from sane,
Like the news chart
Money, what is that; if you're disabled
You'll learn soon what poor means when your labeled!

Errors Within

Memory is all that's left when reality's
Gone forever.
Only the good things will be left behind
The bad never.
So we create this world that never was
With endeavour.
Is it not a sin to lie? Thus we have
The purest sin.
No evil intent it is the way we are
Errors within.
So we go on and on through life this way
Remembering.
I remember how you looked at me
That's the way I wish it ever to be.

-----

Everlasting

The water falls in soft gentle splashes
There's no anger
As if welcoming lost friends the water
Awaits below.
In a flurry of movement sounds of
Greeting burst out
Friends and visitors dash off hastily
Reunited
Then others eager to take their place wait
With bated breath and the cycle continues.

-----

Garden Of Love

In life we'll set a paradigm of love
We'll never part.
So certain am I, I surrender my soul
Also my heart.
Others will know it can be any time
When love can start.
We will create a garden with a bower
And there we'll meet
'Neath blossoms we have created so divine
Our loving feat.
The Sun will shine and all the birds will sound
We'll be complete.
And each night as Hypnos lays out his coat
Wrapped together to heaven we'll float.

-----

Incomplete

Strange, how quickly some people make you
Want to peel back the blinds across your eyes
And let them come in without even knocking.
You let them casually browse through all your dreams,
Your hopes, and fears, forgotten treasures and things.
Taking them by the hand along dark corridors
To cold, cob-webbed rooms, blowing away dust,
Fondly passing over much loved artefacts.
Then other warm moments in sunnier rooms
Spent sitting, on bright yellow dustcovers,
Sipping sweet, well aged port, warming limbs
Together, but separate, feeling cosy.

There's urgency to be close, honestly sharing,

I sometimes find that I'm still excitedly moving
To yet another room, gesticulating, when
All-of-a-sudden I notice she's not there.
Retracing my steps, I find someone fast asleep
Where she told me she would be, in the sun.
Instead I found her in earnest conversation
With a stranger her eyes wide open to him
Inviting him to come in.
Once again I faded into the shadows,
Wishing that I'd locked the door earlier
From the inside.

-----

November 53

It was the time of the long stretch of grey
A time of tears.
A time of drenched thought and clouded dreams
Discovered doubt.
Clouds were cutting off all circulation.
Creating fears.
Splattered windows on soggy afternoons
Misery without.
It makes a difference what colours do
In creating cheers.
The colour grey can fill the whole of you
And sadness sprout.
Instead lift up and paint a rainbows hue
From then on you will see a different view.

-----

Love Has Grown

Out of the mist my love has grown so strong
You've made it so.
In my winter mornings you created heat.
The heat of you
Will burn away the coldest morn on Earth.
Believe me please.
Now the mist has gone and the morning's clear
My hearts aglow.
Last night was spent with moon and stars alight.
I've known so few
I realise with you I'll see many more.
Stay gentle tease.
Outside the winter winds will make their mark
Inside there is heat from your fiery sparks.

-----

On Cue

No one of note knows what I feel or cares
You care for me.
There's a look in your eyes, swiftly passing
I saw that glance
Curious, inviting, waiting my move
Would you agree?
Then I saw that look again wondering
I will advance.
I saw you smile as I approached and knew
What we would be
As if on cue the world spun, twirled and
Began to dance.
And dance we will until the end of time
Knowing what we have is always sublime.

-----

Pictures

I picture you in a white, dress, bag, shoes
Looking so pure.
And my mind wanders now to you in black
So sinecure.
But that is my mind and where has it been
You, so demure
Then I realise each pose is just for me
And you will be what I want you to be.

-----

Reality Bites

I wish to wake by your side each day of my life
Hearing your voice.
Would that it were so simple, just one wish.
Nothing's simple,
And can never be when it comes to love.
I wish to wish!
What is love but a game of happenstance
A casual choice?
A choice which makes or breaks two people.
Is it ample
Or do you need more to fill your desires?
A heady dish!
So these questions will go on for all eternity
Imagining that they are a uniqueity.

-----

Unacceptable

You wickedly tease me with opal smiles
Cast out, tempting.
My nose senses late autumn in the air
Cold and wet's king.
Where is the rain? False promises again
There is nothing.
The opal fades as dirty brown patches
Appear and hopes of heavy rains dashes.

Further North abundance floods aplenty
Too much again.
The levees breech and some towns are flooded
Almost insane.
Does it flow where it's needed most, mostly
Goes down the drain.
Much further North the Artic thaws away
And we must wait while the Poli's delay.

-----

Values

I look across the river from my chair
As the sun sets.
You raise your wine glass to your lips and smile
We are content.
With it the setting sun takes the days heat
And no regrets.
Casually our feet reach out and contact
Without intent.
The sun's set, the red sky refuses to die
It's paid it's debts,
But naught is due except to see the fruits
Of this event.
The sun has seen so much love in it's time
But none so much as will be yours and mine.

-----

Xylose (Sugar)

The full moonlit night causes thrills in the heart
Voices haunt me.
In a forest of darkness seeking for
A free spirit,
From light to dark no longer searching.
I'd found thee,
I sought harmony with you a union.
Should you permit
I was willing to give my all to you.
You did agree
And from that feelings grew and grew so strong
I will admit
Days without you are days without sunshine
And the days with you are all roses and wine.

-----

Zilch Muse

It's not the night or the music it's me
My muse has gone
Too much work, too much pressure is enough
She has withdrawn
I sit here my glass of port as company
Ideas, I have none
My notes zilch, there's no inspiration there
All ideas blown
So I sit here drinking a lovely port
No light has shone
Another sip, appreciating Gods gift to me
I must postpone
No worldly wisdom to impart to you
This time my foot is in some others shoe.

Dawn

Enfolded by her wings they view the world,
these newborn swans;
white feathered innocence meeting my gaze,
no sign of brawn
as beaded black eyes melt into my green.
We share this dawn,
watch Day take off her negligee of rose-
sheer joy over the bright blue gown she chose.

-----

Deva Premal

On wings of sound my soul is pulled aloft
to join Your spheres,
each thrilling tone takes off old outer layers-
harvest of years.
I close my eyes to let my heart float free,
let go tight fears.
I feel my body straighten, mind's now calm,
as music washes through me with song's balm.

-----

Dusk

At dusk night's angels pour soft pastel light
across wide skies;
day's blue is draped in lilac, peach and pink-
heaven's surprise.
Above the now dark tree-tops, cream turns mauve
at half moon's rise;
I stand in awe of nature's palette range,
as stars arise.
The firmament wears blue and orange veils
in night's disguise;
when blackbird's last song fades away, I sigh;
soft whispers of the evening breeze, reply.

-----

Flame of love II

As pigeons flock on top of red tiled roofs,
you're in my dreams.
On wings of swiftest birds I send my call
with air's fast streams;
I know you'll catch my thought, return one soon
in moonlight's beams.
I'll pluck it from the sky and hold it close,
then add it to the flame within- which grows.

-----

Floating

Blue water, smooth as glass, invites me in,
envelops me,
I lie upon my back, floating in peace,
my mind set free;
with wide-spread arms and gently moving feet,
I find life's lee.
On turning 'round, I feel my muscles' strength;
still free of thought I swim this morning's lengths.

-----

Love's buffet

When you could be my breakfast and my lunch,
I'd be fulfilled;
unlike when having rice at supper-time,
no grain gets spilled.
No dread would fill me, looking at the scales,
I would be thrilled.
Never again I would feel hunger pangs-
bliss is instilled.
On love's buffet we'd quench our thirst and dine,
our menu would taste nicer than sweet wine.

-----

Love's Flame

Within my heart resides my love for you.
Its steady flame
lights up my darkest days and warms cold nights;
it burns your name
into the tissues of my offered skin.
I cannot blame
you for the searing pain when blisters break-
your love is soothing and removes each ache.

-----

Love's pursuit

Like gentle rain my love enters your heart
to ease bare drought;
its never-ending flow of fertile pearls
moves seeds to sprout.
Still tender shoots strike deep within soul's soil
and find their route,
each added drop consolidates and heals-
removes old doubt.
As roots are reaching layers still unreclaimed,
they get more clout,
until at last new budding love's in bloom
and hearts grow stout.
As patience and strong passion now bear fruit,
we'll celebrate the wealth of love's pursuit.

-----

Loving you

You're in each morning's dawn, when skies are pink
and air smells fresh;
I breathe in deeply, take you in my blood.
I drink of you
as in my breakfast's fruits I taste your skin,
fragrant and pure.
I feel you in Sun's hot embracing touch,
warming my flesh.
You're in each heartbeat, into my essence
you are imbued.
When clouds darken my dreams and I can't flee,
your voice assures.
You're in the stillness of birds' evensong,
I see you in Moon's light as love prolongs.

-----

Morning shower

Within the shower's warm embracing hold,
my mind's adrift;
as water's fingers trail across my skin,
sensations shift.
I feel your arms around me, draw me close
and spirits lift-
your nose is in my hair, I hear your laugh
in morning's gift.
I'm floating on a cloud of fragrant steam,
relaxing mind and muscles in fall's stream

-----

Prănayăma

As prăna flows into my pelvic bowl,
my body grounds;
soft waves of subtle breath rinse out all thought
till peace is found.
I watch inside and feel life's well pour forth
on air's soft sound.
Each inhalation's followed by a pause-
my heart beats steadily within Your cause.

-----

Unravelling

In you my thoughts find rest and fade away,
my mind is freed;
within your hands my wounds will disappear,
no longer bleed.
You are the haven where I'll find my lee,
to you I'm keyed.
Born from your seed, I will dissolve in you,
unravelling tight knots that once accrued.

Accepting everything you test me with,
growth will increase;
I'm giving up all envy and all greed,
to find release.
Abandoning my anger and my tears,
I am in peace.
I'm opening my inner self to you,
preparing soul's new vessel to be true.

-----

With or without you

While laughter in your voice dissolves grey clouds,
the sun breaks through;
my brow is clear again as inner light
shines bright and true.
Within the circles of my mind peace reigns
in love's review,
when eyes and mouth rejoice in newborn smiles,
my heart's with you.
I'll send my love with each ray of the sun,
with every raindrop and moon's nightly run.

I hear you in bird's song and in the breeze
waving trees' crowns,
I see you in each flower in green fields,
in gulls' high rounds;
I feel your touch when Sun kisses my skin
in bare-necked gowns.
I miss your body's warmth when nights are cold
'neath doona's down;
if Star Trek's "Beam me up" would now exist,
we'd share more than our dreams and we could kiss…

-----


Yoga XIX

My breath is rising like a crested wave,
capping my crown;
in letting go, I watch how Prăna flows-
a streaming gown.
As thoughts retreat, I feel my brow relax,
set free its frown;
with worries wiped away, I sit- just am,
peace settles down.
Between the earth I sit on and the sky,
Life's energy pours its immense supply.

-----

You

You're in the coolness of a morning's breeze,
in dew-drops' pearls;
you're in the softness of a new-born lamb's
white woolly coat.
You're in the whispers of the trees at night,
in dusk's soft voice,
I see you in white crested waves at sea,
where water curls;
I feel you when the sun kisses the skin
of my bare throat.
I hear you in the flowing river's song
when nymphs rejoice.
You are my slumber and my evening's rest,
in you I wake and live, fulfil my quest.

-----

Your Light

Between the atoms and the stars, You are
the force that knows,
behind grey layered clouds and masks of men
Your light still glows.
Beneath the hardened crust of soul and earth,
You feed life's flows;
before Your eyes all will come to be judged,
it can be voluntarily, or nudged.

Above the world of men, the angels watch,
at times they cry;
if we but listened to their warning call,
we could reply
and readjust our ofttimes faulty ways,
say them goodbye.
If we're alert, we'll hear Your voice with ease,
Your Light will help us find the keys.

Fired Once

The best way to have a mans heart is food,
Cupids arrow
Could be no better weapon for true loves
Arsenal show,
Just let me into the kitchen awhile
And you will know
Beans for bullets, carrots for cutting tools,
Straight from the gullet to heart, no re-peels!

-----

Miracle

You are the will o'wisp of turning time
Here in my mind.
You cause the moon to glow, the sun to shine
Now in these thoughts.
You ought to know, the way love has grown
Here in two hearts.
We've become more, we've become truly one,
God divined.
Angels wings have lifted beyond what's true,
His hands have carried and molded we two.

-----

Rainbow

As the rainbow, fair to see, so lovely,
Casts colors
Over clouds of mist in gossamer sky
Like no other
Artists palette of angelical hues,
Earth is duller
Without such graceful strokes, Gods brush there
Shimmering and blessing with beauties flair.

-----

Rising Sign

You've completed me time and time again,
Then came to me.
Without you I could not have changed my fate
And shared such free
Universal bonds of affections,
Over seas,
Beyond the eternal chaos of space
To where time and space have no real place.

I left your side to do my wandering
Lonely again.
This time there is hope a prayer to return
And stop the pain.
I see your face, it calls me from afar
I am insane.
I turn and head for what is your abode
I can see now and the blessings bestowed.
