Newly Created Poetic Forms: Zakariyan Sonnet, Aztec, ‘Ayn

I have developed three new poetic forms. Please feel free to try them out:

Zakariyan Sonnet

ABAB

CDCD

EFEF

GG

The rhyme scheme is based on the Shakespearean, but the difference is there are no syllabic requirements on the poet. So you can express yourself fully without worrying about having to add or take away a word.There is also no set meter. Expressive freedom is at the heart of this form.

Aztec Form

1…………

2………………..

3……………………………..

4………………………………………….

Thform is based on the pyramids created by the Aztecs. You can increase the size of the pyramid ad infinitum. (Note. stage 20 onward will require a huge piece of paper!)

The ‘Ayn Form

I am ########lost####### upon the tracks of life.

‘Ayn means ‘eye’ in Arabic. The layout of the words reflects what you are saying.
