Creativity Forms Verses ~ Helipad

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 ‘H’, Sangeetha created the ‘Helipad’ form.

H: Helipad
Sangeetha’s Helipad
David’s Helipad


The idea of the ‘Helipad’ poetic form is to highlight the shape of the marked space for landing ~ the letter ‘H’.

  • 9 lines;
  • All lines start and end with the letter H, which is capitalized and in bolded;
  • All words in Line 5 are in bold;
  • All lines should be the same length, inclusive of spaces (poetic licence granted).

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

  1. […] The Helipad by Sangeetha from the “Creativity Forms Verses” nonce forms – a poem of 9 lines. All lines begin and end with the letter H which is capitalized and bolded. All words in line 5 are also capitalized and bolded. All lines should be the same length including spaces. This will form the H indicating a helicopter landing pad! BONUS: Use an animal in the poem.
