Bob and Wheel
"A short while back, Robert Lee Brewer introduced us to this simple but interestingly named form, Bob and Wheel. I thought we might explore it a bit deeper.
Here are the guidelines:"
Quintain (or five-line) stanza or poem
Rhyme scheme of ababa
First line of two to three syllables
Lines two through five have six syllables per line
I touched the bark of trees,
some smooth, some rough. I stood
still breathing pine, longing
to remain there for good.
I watched the ocean waves
roll in, and as was planned
it tickled toes with spray.
Fun way to spend a day.
