ROGUE TRAVELER- TETRACTYS

Gold
Swath of
Shifting silk
Slipping from clouds
Sinks into turquoise intoxication.

Tetractys, a poetic form invented by Ray Stebbing, consists of at least
5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20).

  1. Nice, and yes some formal poetry forms require discipline and concentration to achieve a smooth image. I like the idea and may try a tetractys. Does it rhyme or is it only the syllable count that matters?
