Pat Lewis introduced the world to his new poetry form, the “zeno” on Monday at The Miss Rumphius Effect. It is a mathematical pattern featuring syllables of 8-4-2-1-4-2-1-4-2-1 with an “abcdefdghd” rhyme scheme. While this is considered a “hailstone” sequence, Lewis didn’t want to confuse it with the classic book, Hailstones and Halibut Bones by Mary O’Neill so he named it after the philosopher, Zeno.
