NaPoWriMo #18
A to Z Challenge: #19   S  for Sincerity

Note: A Rubaiyat  with an AABA rhyme scheme
While  keeping a 10 syllable count on all lines
as an option

Seeing double and testing one’s visuals
High up in the clouds very unusual
Two Fighting Falcons in reversed stacking
Working up to something sensational

Reminiscent of two friends together
Extending friendship of feelings so dear
Come what may trusting in one not lacking
But relationships sustained forever

The feelings of heavens opening up
Keeping sincerity of the heart
Giving way that easy not relenting
Tightly in one’s grasp and ever so hard

NaPoWriMo #18
A to Z Challenge


  1. Friendships are precious in life. Good write.

  2. friendships take work & effort
    esp if they are to get to the level of those two fighterpilots who have to trust each others every move.

  3. Having that kind of trust sure doesn't happen over night

  4. Amazing the trust they have to have up there

  5. True gold = Trust!

  6. How wonderful to liken planes in flight with friendship, especially in these times when we can have extremely close friendships with people around the world and who we may never meet (but always dream of meeting in person).

  7. Friendship. One of the most precious of human relationships.
