“A sestina is 39 lines, 6 stanzas with 6 lines each plus a tag. Begin with 6 words of your choice.Take those words and rotate them at the ends of your stanzas. They rotate in a round with the last word of the last line being the last word of the first line in the next stanza. Your lines can be any length, though it just looks nicer if they’re quite regular.”
Princess wishing for saving but her mind,
Changes thought after awhile left waiting.
Time goes by and the princess, she contrives —
Better plans to be herself, to fulfill dreams.
Caring not if Prince Charming’s attractive,
She drugs the dragon, starts ever-after.
In boy’s clothes, leaves for her ever-after,
Princess shunning a dusty castle mind —
Focused on the path past the moat, awaits,
Challenges, aspirations, contriving —
And listing, all she desires to do, dreams —
A life that is hers, no dull prince, unattractive.
She swims easily through water not attracting —
Guard who had watched her forever-after.
She climbs past the moat, into sunshine, mind —
Reeling at the brightness of dawn; she’s waiting,
To slip into the forest contriving —
Survival though sheltered, planning her dreams.
Who should come to ruin her heartfelt, desired dreams?
But a mean grumpy prince so unattractive —
Manners, pretty, not her ever-after —
She kicks fragile parts; she has a sharp mind —
Laughing, runs to whatever in life awaits,
Inexperienced but smart, she contrives —
Her new life, with hidden coins she contrives —
To buy a home, train for job of dreams.
Countryhome and teaching school, sounds attractive,
Her imagination’s wild ever-after,
It’s the person she is, needs no prince, minds —
Respecting him — an awful fate waiting,
Though the dumb prince chases her, she’s waiting —
Welcome to almost October. In Canada it’s nearly Thanksgiving. My littlest brother turned 28 a few weeks ago and I’m counting down the days until I can be more open on my blog and tell you all about the last year. There are good reasons I haven’t been able to many personal updates. But anyways I love inspiring you guys with quotes so here’s somewhere to begin October with. There’s a bit of a Shakespeare theme but overall a good mix of various quotes.
Happy mid- September! I hope life is treating everyone well. I have always loved the fall although I also always miss the summer,the festivals, outdoor markets, the sun high in the sky at 11:00 p.m. I miss sipping sangria, cosmopolitans, bellinies, and Caesars on the patio at various bars and restaraunts. My favorite thing where I live is when bars and restaurants make their patio larger in the summer months. It’s a temporary thing but it’s fun.
Autumn has its own remarkable beauty and hopefully nice weather until at least mid- November. But we’re not always that lucky here. Anyways, today’s quotes are Harry Potter themed, them returning to school in Fall as most kids and University students do. J.K. Rowling was/is a wise lady.
