Dreaming

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. This Aquarian I will call Dreaming.

I am discovering this style of poetry is harder than it first appeared. You only have to some up with fourteen syllables for each stanza, but sometimes you want to write more. Plus, I find the constant counting of the syllables distracting. I also have to fight the urge to create rhythms.

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.

Dreaming

Writing
Poetry in
My sleep leads to dreaming
In words



Capture
Meter and the
Syllables one by one
Marvel


At the
Flow of letters
And the free form of verse
Written


On the
Wall of the room
Letters turn into fine words
Rapture


In the 
Night of clumsy
Dreaming in fragments of
Lovely


Words I
Am not likely
To remember after I
Wake up
