NaPoWriMo 2015

Day 11: compose a poem in Sapphics. These are quatrains whose first three lines have eleven syllables, and the fourth, just five. There is also a very strict meter that alternates trochees (a two-syllable foot, with the first syllable stressed, and the second unstressed) and dactyls (a three-syllable foot, with the first syllable stressed and the remainder unstressed). The first three lines consist of two trochees, a dactyl, and two more trochees. The fourth line is a dactyl, followed by a trochee.

Day 11: (or Haiku Alternative or. of course. Visual Poetry)

against 
all turnings 
of the clock.

the darkness 
spreading.

still one star
at a time.

between 
the houses.

where I walk.

and linger.

yet one step.

out of rhyme.

One-Line Haiku/Haiga:

she offers tea upon a starlit night these waves of amber
