Poetry: Between Sunrises and Sunsets.

image of lovers

Life, love, and dreams…

I am beginning to love creating poetry using the Rictameter Verse. …this form of poetry—Rictameter Verse, uses 9 lines in the poem, and strict syllable count: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 with the first line repeating itself in the last line.

We watched
the sun rise above.
We watched it fall, and in
between those times, souls ignited.
In those moments, we held our lives, our dreams,
and our fantasies. Between the
whispers, soft moans, and sighs.
On pillow tops
we watched.

  3. Well done, Linda. I’m no expert in the realm of poetry, but I can react to what I like and what I don’t. I don’t often see poems in strict syllable count structures that ‘speak to me’ on an emotional level, but I admire the care and thought it takes to write one successfully.

  7. My late father-in-law had always loved words, Linda, and during the last year or so of his life he became fascinated with counting their syllables. In addition — and with no prior experience with or interest in poetry — he began to write syllable-count-style haiku. In an effort to provide him with a bigger canvas, so to speak, I suggested he try writing rictameters. How he enjoyed that form! He wrote them for months and months until one day he told me he felt he’d had enough of them and was going to try his hand at writing stories. He passed away shortly thereafter.
