This week I will try Rhyming Wave https://poetscollective.org/poetryforms/rhyming-wave/

This form was made by Katharine L. Sparrow and I really love it! I just found it out of the blue!

Without You

a rainy day is nothing new
nothing, nothing, nothing new
just like a rainbow pouring through
just like a ray of hope

I cling to you like knotted rope
knotted, knotted, knotted rope
I think and love and try to cope
I think and know love’s true

I’m blue the days I’m without you
without, without, without you
A day of darkness seems so blue
A day of agony

we fit together perfectly
perfect, perfect, perfectly
Without you I can’t bear to be
without you I am lost

A rainy day is nothing new
without you I am lost.

  1. I think the mood of the piece fits a rainy day perfectly.
    I looked into the form. Meter is not my friend.
    I copied links and form information – Thank you.

    I created a new form too – I think I may have used it at Tanka Tuesday.
    You can find it here if you are interested: Sebunku by JulesPaige

  2. I read the form and then thought “this is impossible” but you prove it to be a wonderful thing! I loved the way this unfolded – just like the lapping waves at the shore!! I’m inspired – I may just have to give it a try!!!

  3. Hi Christine, I’m with Jules, meter always gives me fits, but you made it seem so flowing (rhyming wave) that I’ll have to give this a try. I like the repetition of words, it always gives a special flow to the poetry. Well done! ❤
