trembles softly there in the wings even as frost blankets the loam
darling daffodils, peepers and bluebirds sing your happy songs winter’s end is near and spring won’t be long
As busy as I have been this year with work and caretaking, I could not let Pi Day pass without giving a new Pi inspired poetry form a go! It’s called a Cadae and incorporates the first 5 digits (3.1415). See the details below:
There are two styles of Cadae. (I chose the second style for today.)
1. strophic, written in 5 strophes of fixed but varied length. S1 - 3 lines S2 - 1 line S3 - 4 lines S4 - 1 line S5 - 5 lines
2. Incorporating a syllabic element to the strophes in style #1. S1 - 3 lines with 3 syllables per line S2 - 1 line with 1 syllable in the line S3 - 4 lines with 4 syllables per line S4 - 1 line with 1 syllable in the line S5 - 5 Lines with 5 syllables per line
I know they’re there the golden hillside the mountain vista the endless blue sky the sun my memory serves me well.. they’re there but for today heaven enfolds me in her cool, damp cocoon to savor the moment to breathe, to sigh to notice the trees for the forest
