Theme for 2018 is a one lined quote that gives me inspiration for writing a Poem – These quotes are copied from Goodreads.com – tag poetry.

“With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.” ― Edgar Allan Poe

Reading or Writing – I Love Poetry

Poetry is passion
try it in your life
wildfire in your blood
like inhaling air
it is survival

it gives feeling
to be human
lets ideas bloom
calms conditions

flowing free
on paper
fingers flee



Diminishing Pentaverse – origin unknown

A pentaverse is a 5-line poem with 5 syllables per line.

Therefore, the Diminishing Pentaverse begins with a stanza having 5 lines of 5 syllables, and decreases down to 1 line of 1 syllable.

Total length: 15 lines

Syllabic structure: 5-5-5-5-5, 4-4-4-4, 3-3-3, 2-2, 1


The lines don’t have to be lists.
