My Form Created

Rhyme It Out! This poem is a rhyming poem form I created by critiquing two poem forms to create a form of my own. Have given the rules of said creation, as well as showing the forms I created them from. On  occasion will post poems in my created forms, however subject matter will be random and will not be in book form. You will see "Thoughts" at time of creation under poem; other than with initial introduction poem.  

Explanation of  form created and rules:

Have combined Villanelle (Five tercets, quatrain, and 8-10 syllables per line, and refrains) and Terzanelle (19 line tercets in iambic meter-sometimes, quatrain, and refrains). Rhyme pattern of both as follows:

Villanelle             Terzanelle                                         
A (1)                                                                  A (1)
b                                                                        B
A (2)                                                                 A (2)

a                                                                       b
b                                                                       C
A(1)                                                                 B

a                                                                      c
b                                                                      D
A (2)                                                               C

a                                                                      d
b                                                                      E
A (1)                                                               D

a                                                                     e                                   
b                                                                     F
A (2)                                                              E

a                                                                     f
b                                                                    A (1)
A (1)                                                             F
A (2)                                                             A (2)

My Created Form- Tervillzanelle combines the guidelines of five tercets in 19 lines, quatrains and refrains of both the Villanelle and the Terzanelle. The iambic meter of the Terzanelle is somewhat  present, syllables of 8-10 of the Villanelle are present, and the rhyme pattern of both the Villanelle and the Terzanelle are combined to create the rhyme pattern as follows:

A (1)
A (2)


A (2)



A (1)
A (2)

Breaking The Guidelines

Here a created form of rules that combines
Two similar in structure I write
As a poet that's breaking the guidelines

Both having same amount of lines
Making this challenge good despite
Here a created form of rules that combines

Keeping in mind the lines as defines
Both forms in creating my form right
As a poet that's breaking the guidelines

Now I move onto breaking the rhyme scheme
Combining the two structures together
Where to this, this section I redeem

In making this created form pull altogether
Stuck to the syllables of one form
Keeping iambic meter of the other

To me poetry doesn't need to conform
Here a created form of rules that combines
Structure of two allowing to perform
As a poet that's breaking the guidelines

To Each Their Own

Sometimes we hear put down from others
That be better in their country
As comparisons made of another's

When to our country others enters
Crisis breakout they talk abruptly
Sometimes we hear put down from others

To their own countries their cultures
Strength & weakness seeing displayed bluntly
As comparisons made of another's

There's no comparison one to another
For each country splendor it's own
No matter, here be as to rather

As drawn to here something made known
In pretense of better than there
But in the difference now some moan

In times of hard becoming aware
Sometimes we hear put down from others
For as known their own they declare
As comparisons made of another's

Thoughts: Living in United States and working  a customer service job where seeing people from all over the world I hear much. In addition work for people originating from another county. There is much talk about comparison of the Coronavirus outbreak and recovery as to how much better a county compared to another due these statistics. Which, to me, is just simply ridiculous. So, if better, something brought you here-to another country-or you wouldn't here. Many moan, complain, and compare once settled in another country; especially when a crisis happens. Again, it's ridiculous. Each country has it's own splendor, strengths, and weaknesses; one no better than the other, to each their own. 

Better on The Other Side

Having no disrespect to lives lost
As for those left need to strive
To be better on the other side

When to this thing lives are tossed
As we try maintaining to stay alive
In having no disrespect to lives lost

To this many jobs are greatly exhaust
Anger it creates in trying to survive
To be better on the other side 

Hopefully soon this thing will pass
Then we can take a breath and relax
Making it better for us at last

Important now in watching our backs
As precautions we take now for later
In knowing later we will use these facts

In helping make our lives straighter
Having no disrespect to lives lost
As striving in the future as greater
To be better on the other side

Thoughts: The crisis we now live, will eventually pass. Yes we should be concern with here and now; but, should additionally strive to be better later. Question is: Will we be better on the other side of this crisis once it passes? Will say, I sure hope it to be better on the other side!
