Creativity Forms Verses ~ Numberhyme

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 ‘N’, Sangeetha created the ‘Numberhyme’ form.

N: Numberhyme
Sangeetha’s Numberhyme
Surely, sincerely, my high feeling 
Achieving something by captivatingly rhyming,
Mathematically challenging, but lyrically puzzling
Is making everything monumentally confusing.
Dryly, I sigh, why try

Points: 130

David’s Numberhyme
My sense of humor's dry.
By tumor I may die;
By love; or immense sigh;
By centaur; door; or pie;
Won't I? Okay, don't cry!

Points: 145

  • No more than 5 lines;
  • No more than 5 words per line;
  • You get points! Numberhyme points are calculated thus:
    • Every word that rhymes with any other word: 5 points;
    • If two rhyming words occur at the end of adjacent lines: 5 points;
    • The maximum possible: 145 (the idea is to maximize your points)
