Creativity Forms Verses ~ Doremido

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 ‘D’, Sangeetha created the ‘DoReMiDo’ form.

D: DoReMiDo
Sangeetha’s DoReMiDo
I wonder why
we travel on
without a map
while life goes by

Fall into all
possible plots
~an adventure
always on call

One step begun
with heart in hand
hoping we may
Run into fun

Let's do our best
To flow with tides,
enjoy the ride.
Rest. We are blessed.
David’s DoReMiDo
May I just say-
life's confusing;
all conclusions-
they wash away...

Trite truths indict
those that push them
as cocksure; but-
might they be right?

Meanwhile, I lean
t'wards- maybe so...
how do you know?
~keen truth to glean.

So, museful, slow,
I observe; and
I contemplate-
though truth brings woe.
  • 4 lines in each verse;
  • 4 syllables per line;
  • 4 corners of each verse (syllables 1, 4, 13, 16) rhyme;
  • It looks like this:




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