Oviellejo #17

for nemophilists such as me
amidst the trees

is where my wild heart can find
sparks of divine

deeply rooted in fecund clay
on breezes sway

leaves a flutter at heaven’s gate
cradling fledglings nest to wing
cool shade for seekers wandering
amidst the trees, sparks of divine on breezes sway

The Oviellejo is an Old Spanish verse form (derived from ovillo, a ball of yarn). A stanza consists of 10 lines, with a rhyme scheme of AABBCCCDDC. The second line of each rhyme scheme, Line 2,4,6, is short line of up to 5 syllables. The last line is a “redondilla,” a “little round” that collects all three of the short lines.
