Leaves are deciduous or evergreen
Flowers are bell-shaped, white pink or even red
Fruit, is a berry, flared crown with hygiene
Many species, bushes clustered with heads
low bush type is easier to harvest
Modern farmers cultivation widespread
Successful crops for a stable market
The fruit is sweet with an acidic taste
Blueberry muffins, now I am starving
Nutrients are ten-fold, let us not waste.

 Stress Matrix Dectet is:

  • A decastich (10-line poem) written in one single stanza.
  • It is made with 10 syllables per line, written on any subject.
  • The odd lines are written in iambic meter (unstress/stress = o-KAY)
  • The even lines are written in trochaic meter (stress/unstress = EA-sy)
  • Rhyme scheme: aBaBcBcDcD, where lowercase = iambic and uppercase = trochaic


    • Yes, t was a challenge, it took me a while to understand, I took your advice and use pencil and paper, it helped a lot.
      Thanks for the kind words about my husband, old age catches up with us all eventually, he is 81, had good health until now. All the best for a peaceful day, July is nearly here.
