Why do some timid trees bleed?
Bleed down coarse conifer trunk;
trunk thickly tiled as fish scales.
What measure of woven tales;
tales to tell of gloom and funk.
Funk which blows as restless reed.
Who damaged their skin with gash?
Gash to damage and dare mar;
mar brilliant breath of broken limb.
When did life become so dim?
Dim to strike sorrow’s which scar;
scar wronged then wove to ash.
This rhyme combination is: abccba deffed, (one could continue with a third stanza of ghiihg) every two lines repeat ending word to beginning word, except for the fourth line in each stanza which asks a question. Each stanza begins with a question also.
I’ve been playing with this combinations to simplify in future post.
I’m sure this pattern has been used before, but I was unable to find evidence of the pattern. For now, I’m calling it the turn-about. Kudos to anyone who can tell me if they have seen this pattern before and what its name is.
Linking up at dVerse later today…
