Poetry Friday is hosted at Merely Day By Day. Thanks, Cathy.
Last night I read a zeno by by Carol Varsalona at Today’s Little Ditty.
It was invented by J. Patrick Lewis .
Here’s the challenge from him: I’d like to challenge your readers to write a “zeno,” which is a new verse form I invented. The zeno was inspired by the “hailstone sequence” in mathematics. I define a zeno as a 10-line poem with 8,4,2,1,4,2,1,4,2,1 syllables that rhyme abcdefdghd.
Driving to work yesterday was much like this:
First storm of autumn: drenching rain,
leaves tumble down.
