Creativity Forms Verses ~ Ckackackonance

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 HyakuinRipples.  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 ‘C’, David created the ‘Ckackackonance’ form.

C: Ckackackonance
David’s Ckackackonance
True tragedy, I've definitively determined, 
Is the disastrous demise of one who clearly craves every second

I'm piercingly pained, struck dumb, sick to my stomach,
Hopeless and helpless... Basically: well beyond broken.

The impending disaster leers, laughing.
Sangeetha’s Ckackackonance
Disaster, don't you dare
Scare the daylights out of us simple people

Skip, skeddadle, scurry off right now!
Do dither off into your dilapidated doomsday dungeon

We folks got luck stuck on our cute colourful cloaks
Don't you strike a blood bargain with the dastardly devil
We would outsmart, out-talk you out of your black attack

And that would be a disaster for you!

  • At least five lines;
    • Lines can be separated into as any number of stanzas;
  • All lines must have different syllable counts (no two lines can share a syllable count);
  • No rhyme; no rhythm;
  • Each line must include at least:
    1. Two instances of consonance;
    2. Two instances of “plosive” consonants[t], [d], [c/k/ck], [g], [p], [b];
      • The more “plosive consonants”, the better!

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