Written for: Go Dog Go Cafe: Huitain poetry
Prompt by Donna Matthews
Here are the basic rules of the huitain:
ababbcbc rhyme scheme
Usually 8 to 10 syllables per line
We slowly step towards normalcy,
everyone looking for guidance.
Weary of life in dormancy,
in need of each other's kindness.
Open doors to laughter, end silence,
and loneliness; bring on the hugs.
Give needy people sustenance.
See the hope in Spring's flower buds.
