kindness

Tanka Tuesday – Kindness is the theme prompt for this week. I’ve written this poem but it doesn’t fit any of the classic poetry forms, at least that I could find. I love it, so I decided to be kind to myself and share it anyways. It is a syllabic poem, so I think Colleen will like. The form is 2:4:2, the last word of one stanza is the first of the following on and the first word of the poem repeats as the last one. I am thinking a name for it, but first I’d like know from the poetry experts if there isn’t already a form like this one.

Another gesture of kindness I’m sharing here, is a self-kindness. A few minutes every morning I give to myself to play with colours, images. It’s a ‘me time’ that I use for art journaling.

Hope you enjoy both of my creativity forms.

  1. I am not an expert, but I think you can name your form, especially if you haven’t seen it before.
    I went looking for your form with just the syllable counts ‘short poem with 2 by 4 by 2 syllables’
    And I couldn’t find anything. Maybe ‘Daisy Chain” ? because you could lengthen it too, perhaps.
    Good luck, nice piece.

    1. Thanks, Colleen! I’m relieved that you liked it, I’m not sure if I should post it, I tried to add words to make Haiku, but I just like the simplicity of it so much! And yes, ‘me time’ always! ๐Ÿ™‚
