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

a careful assembled poem often gives us good emotions.
we do value some "poetry form".
