Daily Rictameter – Fireflies Dance


In this daily Rictameter verse, “Fireflies Dance.”

It is of the quiet, mystical delights. Nature in the seeing. Being, evolving in a spectacle of sheer silence as it dances before you void of noise. I wonder how many times we’ve crossed it or it us, unnoticed, unseen. Read more below digital art piece.

What is a Rictameter Verse?

From all the poem forms here, I have come to find a new type of poetry it is the Rictameter verse. It is thus far my favorite, it’s quite challenging. But I love challenges.

This poem uses 9 lines in the poem, and strict syllable counts 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 with the first line repeating itself in the last line. This style of writing can be a rhyming sequence or non-rhyming lines.

I am in hopes you’ll enjoy this example of a Rictameter verse I wrote earlier in the day!

… Fireflies Dance …

It was
visible in
the black night these small stars.
A flicker of truth, in the last
Glimmer before dawn. Fireflies, how they danced.
A love song of life. Wings flapping.
A silent harmony.
So beautiful
It was.
