Written for: dVerse Poets Pub - Poetry Form: Synchronicity
(posted by Grace)
"The definition of synchronicity is the state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.
As a poetry form, this consists of eight three-line stanzas in a syllable pattern of 8/8/2. This poetry type has no rhyme and is written in the first person with a twist. The twist is to be revealed within the last two stanzas. This form was created by Debra Gundy."
I was excited to find out
born same day-Tennessee Williams
Streetcar Named Desire on Broadway
at Vivian Beaumont Theater
Ever See Glass Menagerie?
Another brilliant Williams play
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof starring
Elizabeth and Paul, a pair
Loneliness of Summer and Smoke
soul and body relationship
Recall suddenly Last Summer
melodrama in gothic style
Used to love matinees at two
then pub for an early dinner
To many musicals for me
Broadway less diverse than before
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.
