White – Day 20 – #OctPoWriMo 2016 #31days31poems


A Reversed Tetractys form of poetry for the prompt today, as suggested at OctPoWriMo Challenge. You can see the challenge details Here :

 

Of myriad emotional shades at play,
Choose your color,
reflect, is your
canvas
blank?

Tetractys consists of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20). Tetractys can be written with more than one verse, but must follow suit with an inverted syllable count. Tetractys can also be reversed and written 10, 4, 3, 2, 1.

  1. I love the idea of myriad colors reflecting myriad emotions, and we choose what to color the white canvas with. 🙂

    Beautiful.

    Umm… I would suggest you can check the syllable count with The Free Dictionary instead of a syllable counter. Would help get that count right. The poem goes 12-5-5-3-2 at present.

    1. Thank you Leo. OctPoWriMo was a great opportunity to try out different poetry forms not known before. This was one.

      I did change the poem basis your feedback on syllable count. Thanks 🙂
