Your petals fall by a slow dance
like graceful swans
They glide on air
light as feather
tumbling over, getting closer
Softly they land
on hallowed ground
giving summer its one last kiss.
In the abyss
of their absence
Frank Hubeny challenges DVerse Poets’ Pub habitues to write a Minute Poem. A minute poem has 60 syllables and is divided into 4 stanzas. The first line of each stanza has 8 syllables, the remaining lines have 4 each. It is in iambic meter and has an AaBb and so on rhyme scheme. Check out the pub for fabulous entries.
By the way, BY ME POETRY calls for poetry submissions, among others. I think they accept entries until August 1, 2017. Please check out their page for rules.
