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.
