Descending

I wanted to find some interesting styles of poetry for 2022. Metered poetry has always been a challenge for me. I discovered I subconsciously avoided the challenge of dabbling in this particular writing pattern. This year I decided to spread my wings and fly into the face of the storm. I stumbled across the Aquarian by accident and thought it might be interesting to play with this metered style during the last part of January and the entire month of February. My first Aquarian I will call Descending.

About the Aquarian

Maris Mazz created this metered style of poetry.

Each stanza has lines of 2/4/6/2 syllables. They can have any number of stanzas creating multiples of 4 lines. They aren’t supposed to rhythm at all.

Descending

This is

Not the age of

Aquarius rising

Anymore

We have

Moved past the point

Of no return these days yet

Still hope

Yes hope

Lingering in

The darkness and light

Yes hope

Future

Drenched in darkness

Begging for the light of day

Restless

Seeking

The light of truth

Flinching at the lies told

To us

Reaching

Past the blockade

Of unanswered questions

Seizing

Grasping

The fragile wall

personified

Justice

Needing

Final verdict

To pay for our sins

Descent
