Rhythms of Life


Soothes my poor soul
Jazz on the radio
Creating a calming blanket
Designed to restore my troubled spirit
Listening to your arrangements
Sends a thrill right through me
Attuned to your
In perfect


happy, bittersweet
invigorating, tempting, rejoicing
playful, seductive, figurative, rhetorical
amusing, provoking, agitating
magical, love
Author's Notes:
This was written for a contest on AllPoetry called Contest Form, Form, Form by debilynn.  She wanted a rictameter, a lanturne and one other type of your choosing with instructions in author's notes on how to create it.  (PUTTING ALL ON ONE PAGE) The rictameter is similar to a Cinquain, syllable count of 2,4, 6, 8, 10,8,6, 4, 2 making the final line the same two syllable word you began with.  A lanturne is a five-line verse shaped like a Japanese lantern with a syllabic pattern of 1,2,3,4,1.  A Diamante is a seven-line contrast poem set in a diamond shape.
