A #Poetry Puzzle #OctPoWriMo #Paradelle

A difficult task is an understatement for today’s assignment for OctPoWriMo! Using two of the prompt phrases, I composed what I think is a Paradelle; I know it’s supposed to be, I’m just not positive I got it all right! 

Her light footsteps sounding with a crunch
Her light footsteps sounding with a crunch
As she slipped along through the thick forest
As she slipped along through the thick forest
Her footsteps sounding through the forest
Crunch lightly as she slipped along

In her shadow he followed at a distance
In her shadow he followed at a distance
Evading her sight as he lurked behind
Evading her sight as he lurked behind
Behind her he lurked in the distance
A shadow he followed her evading sight

He moves watching her from afar
He moves watching her from afar
Somewhere hiding in the dense cover
Somewhere hiding in the dense cover
Hiding from her watching somewhere
From the dense cover afar he moves

With thick cover he slipped along
Evading her sight as a shadow
Footsteps sounding a light crunch behind
He lurked watching somewhere from afar
He followed at a distance hiding
In through the forest dense she moves

During the first half of this event I’ve tried many new things; this has to be the hardest of them yet! I encourage you to give it a go if you haven’t yet. While I’m glad I made the attempt here, I doubt this form will be one you’ll see from me regularly, if ever again! (If you read the description of the form you’ll understand why I feel the joke was definitely on me LOL)

    1. Maybe longer for me! LOL Thank you for the kind words, too.

      I’m in a rather busy season – may be a week or so before things begin to settle (can’t recall if I’ve said this to you LOL) so I am behind on everything. No health/other issues but prayers for endurance and patience would be greatly appreciated 🙂

      1. Prayers goin’ UP now: endurance and patience, Lord (big helpings for us all). Thanks for noting that it’s not health/other issues–you’re so good to remember I’m a fretter!

      2. Forgot to give you a verse:
        “I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.” Zechariah 2:10b
        Also, Max Lucado was guest pastor at Gateway Church this weekend–wow, great message about “living from our holy inheritance, rather than from our circumstances”–that is the glory-life, Promised Land (but not Disneyland, Max hastened to point out). He preached from Joshua, noting some things which are our “Jerichos”–and how to fight the spiritual battles which begin in our thoughts…. it was all good, I went to both Saturday services–online (I’m not usually up in time for the Sunday ones) 🙂 I have Max Lucado’s Inspirational Study Bible, New Century Version (“The Everyday Bible”)–but rarely use it…that might change now 🙂 God bless you!
