Rictameter

Rictameter is a scheme similar to Cinquain.
Starting your first line with a two syllable word, you then consecutively increase the number of syllables per line by two. i.e. 2/4/6/8/10   Then down again, 8/6/4/2 Making the final line the same two syllable word you began with.
This form looks best when centered
Example Poem
Shadow
The puppy lived
because I rescued him.
Just a boy myself, no one close.
Nursed him to health; trained him easily too
and my grandma watched us blossom.
He played with me, slept with
me, became my
shadow
