Trust/Doubt – Poem

Trust/Doubt

The knight trudged onward with his sturdy steed.

Rain soaked the pair continued forth, the daring duo.

Under skies ever darker, they crossed the perilous plateau.

Shoulders back he approached the home of the dragon and entered that terrible tomb.

Trembling, the knight hefted his sword and charged the Brobdingnagian beast.

Onward bravely with day three of Writing 201: Poetry. Today the prompt is “trust” and the chosen style is acrostic, a very different kind of poem than the last two. This one focuses more on using words to add a hidden depth to the larger work. In this case I chose to use the style that uses the first letter of each piece to spell out a word, and for added complexity I’ve got the last letters spelling out a second word that contrasts with the first.  Both also tie back to the story contained within the work itself. And finally today’s extra device of a bit of internal rhyme thrown in for spice.

So how did I do? I think this one was actually more challenging than the last two.
