Creativity Forms Verses ~ Beyonder

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

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. We knew we’re on to something. So we wrote the next set of poetry forms A to Z ~ Creativity Verses Form. Here, we added a little twist for version2.0, with a key word starting with the same letter.

And now, and in December ’22, we’re onto our fourth collaborative writing project ~ Creativity Forms Verses. To form verses, we turned to creativity, inventing new poetry forms, A through to Z.

For ‘B’, Sangeetha created the ‘Beyonder’ form.

B: Beyonder
Sangeetha’s Beyonder
Birthday wishes, dear David, I think you're faB
Ever happy to share your skill with versE
You've been the most wonderful writing partner... TrulY!
Open to wandering off on an adventure toO
Novel ideas you script on a new horizoN
Delighting us with another beautiful poem to reaD
Enjoy beyondering! There is so much to explorE
Rejoice in the possibilities of now and foreveR
David’s Beyonder
In the form of 8 kimo poems
Born together we two, like true siblings; 
we unearth vast worlds entire;
of verse's verdant womB.

Each challenges and learns from the other;
my craft quite unthinkable
without your soul and lovE.

Years we've shared and many more before us;
each word of yours touches me,
uplifts magicallY.

Once, we were as children learning to walk;
now, having gained confidence,
we honor long agO.

Never had I imagined partnership
that nurtures my own essence,
and through which I've so growN.

Dear Sangeetha, you have my gratitude;
we'll beyonder words as one;
new, fresh forms shall abounD.

Enjoyment is a given at this point;
I relish every poem,
as I craft each responsE.

Rejoice? Yes, I do, as I pen these words
wholeheartedly, with fondness,
to my Dear BeyondeR.

  • This form has 8 units;
    • The unit can be: a word, a line, a verse, a poem, a book of poems… (you can go Beyondering);
  • Each unit has: the same number of words;
  • Each unit begins and ends with the same letter;
    • The Beyonder, like an acrostic poem, has the letters ‘B-E-Y-O-N-D-E-R’ in order. ‘B’ will be the first letter and the last letter of the first unit; ‘E’ the first and last letter of the second unit; and so on.

Read all in our series. We would be absolutely delighted if you write an Atoz  Do share.

  1. I’ve mentioned this many times before, but you and David have such an amazing poetic partnership–so fun and wholesome and meaningful. I love it when I see a post featuring your new collaborative efforts because I know I’m in for a delightful experience.
