Poetic Forms

I’ve been experimenting with poetic forms to emulate the traditional arrangement of the elements and i think i’ve hit upon one.

3 lines opening the circle
6 lines, one each for each element
6 lines, one each for each connection pair
3 lines closing the circle

in the one i’m working on the first and last lines mirror one another, and the second and penultimate lines also mirror each other.

its a work in progress, and i’ll share the finished poem i write in this form, but what do you think about it?


I like this pattern. I may mess about with it myself, if you don’t mind!


Feel free, its why i shared it. i always have loved the fluidity of poetry, even when it falls into a specific form.
