Hello, fellow adventurers!
Like the cinquains from last week, tetractys are also five lines long, with differing syllable counts; 1, 2, 3, 4, 10. Tetractys were created by Ray Stebbing as an attempt to answer Japan’s Haiku. For this weeks poem, I created a double tetractys about my father.
He supports us
for us to succeed, he spends life on edge.
For us, he loses sleep over the future
we are working
so hard for.
Do you have a favorite tetractys poem? Have you ever written one? What are your thoughts on mine? Let me know. Until next time!
