the full moon is blue
each month when there’s two
an anomaly wondrous and rare
my excitement collides with despair
when clouds block the view

Giving it another go.
A new form I call the Inverted Limerick:
Line 1 – 5-7 syllables
Line 2 – 5-7 syllables
Line 3 – 7-10 syllables
Line 4 – 7-10 syllables
Line 5 – 5-7 syllables
Rhyme pattern: A-a-bb-A (line one is repeated on the last line)


Inverted Limerick #1

‘twas a bad election
that reeked of deception
surreality reigned trumping the rule,
cowards appeased the vain whims of a fool
‘twas a bad election

A new form I came up with, just for fun, in response to a creative brainstorming discussion with my friend Jane Dougherty. :).  It’s subject is not related to gasoline, but it is about a thing I find quite distasteful. 😉 I’m calling it an Inverted Limerick:

Line 1 – 5-7 syllables
Line 2 – 5-7 syllables
Line 3 – 7-10 syllables
Line 4 – 7-10 syllables
Line 5 – 5-7 syllables

Rhyme pattern: A-a-bb-A (line one is repeated on the last line).
