I have chosen the Fates as my theme and used the rhyme scheme Spanish Quintain (Quintilla) of A-A-B-B-A
On life’s chequered board
the dice cast records,
To give what is preordained in game of life,
Fates let loose endless strife,
Not known what stars foretell
bid dreams a farewell,
You want to ride stormy,tempestuous tides,
Your efforts it derides-
striking a death knell.
Nonchalantly you ride
to drown in rough tide,
Defiant and buoyed,you roll with wild surf,
Light as you shed Life’s scurf,
Laughing as fates shied.
