Lighthouse – Villanelle (in part)

A lighthouse sending signals across the sea

Heavy beam transcending season and time

The most comforting sight for a lost soul to see

The kindly light, forever guiding me

A helpful hand can’t be stronger than thine

A lighthouse sending signals across the sea

An unwritten promise, an unspoken creed

You easily help me cross the finishing line

The most comforting sight for a lost soul to see

Dear readers,

Today I am here with a Villanelle style of poem. An original villanelle poem is 19 lines long, made up of 3-line verses (tercets). It has two repeating refrains (1st andย 3rdย line of the first verse) and 2 rhymes throughout the poem.

I have incorporated the rules for the Villanelle here to some extent… without writing all the 19 lines.. lazy little me! I have missed yesterday’s post as well.. will definitely make up for it in the coming week.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Have a wonderful week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚
