Poetry Prompt 17 - Are You Dancing?

“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.” ― Rumi

I created a poem for this poetry type for the last A to Z challenge. I enjoyed playing with it and I hope you do as well.


The shackles binding her in place fell to the ground.
She discovered a freedom never felt before.
Smiling into the sun, she laughed and walked away.

She didn’t know her prison was her own making.
She longingly looked out over the horizon.
The Shackles binding her in place fell to the ground.

The door opened and suddenly she had choices.
Stepping out the breeze gently stroked her hair and face.
She discovered a freedom never felt before.

Now was her chance to be who she was meant to be.
She didn’t hesitate or think to look backward.
Smiling into the sun, she laughed and walked away.

  1. Oh I like this cascade. It is similar to a Troiku which is a a new Haiku form created at http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.ca/p/troiku-new-form-of-haiku.html which I write often at my other blog. The only difference is we use the first line of new stanzas rather than the last line. Maybe I`ll combine both forms. Cool prompt!
