Some Kindness

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – 7/5 Trochee

“The 7/5 Trochee consists of 2 or more quatrain stanzas with the following set rules:

Syllable pattern: 7/5/7/5
Rhyme Scheme: a/b/c/b or a/b/a/b
Meter: Trochee

“Trochee” means alternating stressed and unstressed beats in each line. In the 7/5 Trochee, each line begins and ends with a stressed syllable.”

Kind words do so much to help
people in distress
Smiles can change their day
Try it, remove stress.

All of us experience
moodiness and blues
Times we feel life makes no sense
Read some Dr. Seuss.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
