http://namingconstellations.wordpress.com/category/reveries/ introduces a form that was new to me, the Korean sijo, which boils down to 3 lines of around 14 syllables
To quote http://www.sijopoetry.com/ “. . . .Remember the three characteristics that make the sijo unique — its basic structure, musical/rhythmic elements, and the twist. It is shorter and more lyrical than the ghazal. It is more roomy than the haiku, and it welcomes feelings and emotions which haiku either discourage or disguise. It should
please lovers of ballads, sonnets and lyrics, and the downplay of regular
meter and rhyme should appeal to writers of free verse.”
And co-incidentally, http://dversepoets.com/2012/05/05/poetics-our-music/ wants us to write about music, so I combined the two. Having already posted two poems today, the ideas that were germinating for the prompt have been put on hold.
The lyrical constituent of music is idyllic
while systemic rhythmic function contributes to the magic
with intangible comforting consequence – unless too loud.
