Short Poem: Rictameter

Sunday Mini-Challenge:

A nine-line poem, called the rictameter.
The first 5 lines are very similar to a cinquain.
The rictameter pattern of syllables per line goes like this:
Also, the first and last lines must be the same.

let's hush
let us listen
a while. Here they come: when
what, where, why, how long, how often
rushing towards us while we are so lonely . . .
let us hush for a while—list en:
they come towards us rushing . . .
we are lonely . . .
let's hush

  1. Let's hush--a beautiful, meditative line. I love the mystery of what's to come and the anticipation in your poem. Soul seeking and evocative, Rita. Blessings :)

  2. How lovely to read the reflection and desire for a moment of silence in Let's Hush ~ The form works so beautifully ~

    Thanks for participating in Sunday's Challenge ~

  3. This is really gorgeous =)
