A Smattering of Syllables..

Poetry is something I fell in love with at an early age. The rhyme and meter have always fascinated me, however, the one form of poetry that I have come to enjoy writing more than any other is the syllabic measured poem.


This happens to be, quite possibly, my favorite form of poetry to write. Following the traditional 5/7/5 structure.


Sometimes, a haiku just won’t do, and you need to add those two additional lines of 7 syllables each.


A form of syllabic poetry introduced to me by the fine folk over at YeahWrite.me that I have come to enjoy. It follows a 2/4/6/8/2 structure.


I don’t write many of these, as the haiku has my passion, but sometimes, a lune will do just nicely. It has a 3/5/3 structure to it.
