OK, these are the poetry forms I have created. They are nothing special, but I hope you find them interesting.
The first is the Fibonacci Poem[i], which follows the rules of the Fibonacci sequence in the count of its syllables (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 etc., in which each number is the sum of the previous two).
An example would be:
Hush! 1 syllable
at the 2 syllables
young farmer 3
cropping the ripe wheat. 5
Let's dance to the golden tango! 8
It should possibly be snapshot-like, similarly to the haiku or other Japanese poetry forms. Further lines could be added too (but then the haiku-like quality would probably be weakened).
The second poetry form I've invented is a double acrostic that I called U-Poem.
This one, for example, would read "Life is an unfair game."
The second part of the acrostic (the one going up) can be quite a challenge!
My third poetry form is the Zigzag Poem. In a zigzag poem, you start every line with the word with which you finished the preceding line, as in the following example:
Looking at the cloudless sky,
Sky, I wonder, why are you so deceitful,
Deceitful as faceless friends,
Friends who build walls instead of bridges.
A zigzag poem usually has 4-6 lines.
And finally the Mirror Poem. A mirror poem has three quatrains rhyming according to the following pattern: abcd - effe - dcba.
The piano man
They found him walking on a deserted beach,
alone, with just a few rags on.
They tried to talk to him, but he just stared
and didn’t answer their questions.
So they locked him up in a mental ward,
where he suddenly expressed the desire
to draw something he seemed to admire.
It was a piano he drew, and on it a golden award.
They consulted the top psychiatrist, who made a few suggestions:
“Bring him a piano, let him play”, he declared.
And so it was that his real genius came out, he was not a moron
any more, his music was music beyond speech.
All examples are humbly mine.
OK, that's all I have invented for the moment. I told you they are nothing special!
[i] I have later found on the net other sources that claim to have invented this form. I have an email addressed to Mark Normal of the Poetic Genius Society where I mention it that dates back to 2004, and I might even have invented it a little bit earlier. I didn’t find any earlier sources on the net, although I cannot exclude that they exist. All I can say is that I certainly invented this form without ever having seen it from others. I also write puzzles, and some of my puzzles include the Fibonacci series, so for me it was quite obvious to create a poem based on it…
