NaPoWriMo Poetic Form Challenge 27/30: Word Wednesdays

2016 NaPoWriMo

Today’s word is SPIRAL.  I am taking it from Mary Lee Hahn’s line in the 2016 Progressive Poem found HERE.

I love the ZENO form. J. Patrick Lewis created the “zeno” poetry form. It’s a 10-line verse form with a repeating syllable count of 8,4,2,1,4,2,1,4,2,1. The rhyme scheme is abcdefdghd.

Bee Zeno

The morning walk in the canyon
honeybees buzz,
spiral
dive,
gather pollen
for the
hive
blissful workers
strive to
thrive
