Creativity Forms Verses ~ Juxtadecasec

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 ‘J’, Sangeetha created the ‘Juxtadecasec’ form.

J: Juxtadecasec
Sangeetha’s Juxtadecasec

I set off on an epic adventure
Chirpy, full of beans but wallet empty
See, feel, search, closed doors and open hearts;
Part of the fun lies in finding out;
Doubts may go; Faith may stay; Trails may just end,
Sending me back fast to life's battle front;
Untraveled, I neither win nor lose
Shoes I don, pack my night lamp, start my day;
Playing every end game, I start from scratch
Catch my breath and throw caution to the sky.
David’s Juxtadecasec

Feet planted on earth, eyes
trained to the sky,
My questions seek answers that trouble Man;
Can it be- life ends with death's certain cut?
What if, more or less, there's nothing but now?
How to find meaning with nothing to lose?
Whose grand joke is this, this dark tragedy?
Free will or fate? To surrender or try?
Why even bother? Is belief not odd?
God, gods, or chaos? Order lures the mind;
Finding faith a front, it's back down the street.
