A Solstice Flamenca

Another poetry challenge from Fake Flamenco! And another poetry form I’ve never tried: a flamenca. And y’all, this was most definitely challenging, but also really fun. I always love a chance to flex my writing muscles in a new way. So, enjoy! And if you want to participate, too, the deadline to post is Sunday, December 12th.


The old year turns to new
with a promise of light.
The darkest of days
reminds a weary earth
there’s peace in the night sky.

    • Thanks! It was definitely more of a challenge than I thought it would be, between the syllables and the rhyme. I don’t think I’d ever heard of flamenca poetry before. Really cool to do something new!
