Creativity Forms Verses ~ Ex

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 ‘E’, David created the ‘Ex’ form

David’s EX
Vexed by poetry complex;
What's next? It's so perplexing!
My eye checks the specs again;
In some respects, it's worth it...
Skill's apex reflects practice!
Mind flexes and rejects doubts;
Treks lingual? Worthy projects!
Sangeetha’s EX
Wit or without, words do fit
Be it whole or in between
Verse or Ditty, written right,
Poetry, it tessellates
Deftly, bit by bit, bridging
Acuity, and verity.
Sit here. Read. Write. Benefit.

  • 7 lines;
  • 7 syllables per line;
  • Centered;
  • Rhyme scheme looks like an “X”:
    • axxxxxa
