Poetry: Small Quiet Steps

image of nature and life
Smiles cross faces with happiness…

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.

It is
delightful to
see these small, quiet steps
have left an indentation in
your HEART and mind. Maybe these walls you’ve
built, will fall and happiness will
rise in its place. And with
smiles across lips
it is.

      1. Have you ever thought to apply a meter to it, like iambic or trochaic? It would increase the difficulty of course, but it might add a little something to it, with the beat.

      2. As a curiosity, do you use any forms like this in your book, “Impressions of My Mind”?

      3. I do not! “Impressions of My Mind is my first experiment of writing poetry itself! I am in the process of creating my 2nd poetry book “Bird On a Branch”. It will contain a lot of piece from my site and more.

      4. Having read the first book, it will be interesting to see what your next one will be like.
