Reena’s Exploration Challenge – Week 3



I have untapped abilities
Just waiting to be discovered
It’s never too late, one agrees
And so, I just need the password

I could write, I know that by now
I could dance, but a bit awkward
I could cook, I have the know-how
And so, I just need the password

I couldn’t sing, that is for sure
I get sea-sick, even anchored
I’m good with wine, like connoisseur
And so, I just need the password

I have untapped abilities
And so, I just need the password*

* A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.

  1. Welcome to the Exploration Challenge! It takes an ability to look oneself in the eye, and talk.
    The lines are incredibly beautiful! The passwords are all there, concealed behind the routine junk that we gather. Just needs a little brushing up.
