poetry form week 42, Minute poem

the minute poem, or tiny rhyming lyric,
is a good for of expression that sings out nicely,

The rules are rather simple:

  • 3 quatrains (or 4-line stanzas)
  • 8 syllables in the first line of each stanza
  • 4 syllables in the remaining lines of each stanza
  • rhyme scheme: aabb/ccdd/eeff
  • written in strict iambic meter

example of Minute poem

"inches of life span"

we do count our days inches by inches
from Sunday to Saturday
we trust our faith
we invent hour glass in awesome accuracy

Monday is a day to begin working
either as a queen
or as a king
to the magical kingdom of acceleration of wit written

in case, say, there maybe a vacation
when we fly high
to expand our unfulfilled dreams
magic could upgrade our brain

Oh do you have time
to linger
for just a little while
out of your busy
and very important day
for the goldfinches
that have gathered
in a field of thistles
for a musical battle,
to see who can sing
the highest note,
or the lowest,
or the most expressive of mirth,
or the most tender?
Their strong, blunt beaks
drink the air
as they strive
not for your sake
and not for mine
and not for the sake of winning
but for sheer delight and gratitude –
believe us, they say,
it is a serious thing
just to be alive
on this fresh morning
in the broken world.
I beg of you,
do not walk by
without pausing
to attend to this
rather ridiculous performance.
It could mean something.
It could mean everything.
It could be what Rilke meant, when he wrote:
You must change your life.
