Creativity Verses Form ~ ukiah

David  of The Skeptic’s Kaddish and I began a fun poetry partnership in April. We celebrated writing together a 100 verse renga, The Hyakuin  And within days, decided we would absolutely love to continue our writing collaboration and what has grown to be a warm friendship with a new poetry project.

We decided to explore poetry forms. A to Z. Each week one of us chooses a poetry form the other responds to. We completed our first series Form verses creativity in June ’22. And we’re now on to the next set of poetry forms A to Z ~ Creativity Verses Form. We added a little twist for version2.0, with a key word starting with the same letter.

For ‘U’, David selected the ‘Ukiah’ form and the keyword ‘Underwear’.

U: Ukiah

David’s Ukiah

I can't find my underwear...
Neither here nor there!
Dear friend, could we share your pair?

Sangeetha’s Ukiah

Underwear ~ Recycle! Reuse!
But please don't refuse
And at the waist... not too loose!

Ukiah (Reverse Haiku)?

  • A tristich: three lines;
  • Monorhyme: all lines rhyme;
  • Syllabic:
    • L1 and L3 contain 7 syllables;
    • L2 contains 5 syllables.
