Measures golden feet
Unlocks Nature’s woven treasure.
Crumbled into a dusted feast.
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Seven: “Of the poetic forms that are based on syllable counts, probably the most well-known – to English speakers, at least – is the Japanese form called the haiku. But there are many other syllable-based forms. Today, I’d like to challenge you to pick from two of them – the shadorma, and the Fib.” The latter is 6 lines following a syllabic pattern of 1/1/2/3/5/8 or 8/5/3/2/1/1.
