~::~ [A-Z Challenge] ~ Pantoum ~::~


Day 16, P = Pantoum

The pantoum consists of a series of quatrains rhyming ABAB in which the second and fourth lines of a quatrain recur as the first and third lines in the succeeding quatrain; each quatrain introduces a new second rhyme as BCBC, CDCD. The first line of the series recurs as the last line of the closing quatrain, and third line of the poem recurs as the second line of the closing quatrain, rhyming ZAZA.

I am not a mere water droplet

Not just a dewdrop, silken yet mundane

Holding a universe in me, I’m a vignette

Of beauty, marvel and spectacular arcane

 

Not just a dewdrop, silken yet mundane

I’m a bubble of life in marvellous display

Of beauty, marvel and spectacular arcane

Mysteries of multi-verses unknown at play

 

I’m a bubble of life in marvellous display

Of colour, happiness, and exotic splendour

Mysteries of multiverses unknown at play

Spreading sheer euphoria & luminescent grandeur

 

Incandescent lands with celestial presence

Holding a universe in me, I’m a vignette

Dwelled by ethereal beings of resplendence

I am not a mere water droplet

  2. I used to really enjoy reading and writing poetry in high school.

    I’ve always been a fan of learning about the different types of poetry that are out there. I had never heard of a Pantoum before today, but your example was awesome. I’ll be looking forward to coming back to learn more.
