Cadence

  • Cadence, created by Ella Cunningham, is a verse form which appears to be exercises in rhythm and possibly to show the value of often overlooked parts of speech, articles and prepositions. It is similar to the Cameo found at Poetry Base.The Cadence is:
    • a heptastich, a poem in 7 lines.
    • syllabic, the Cadence written with1/2/3/4/4/8/5 syllables per line.
    • unrhymed, but end words should be strong, no articles or prepositions.

      Snared,
      narrow
      precipice,
      time running out.
      Only option,
      amputate trapped arm, flying solo.
      Fortitude, freedom.
My Thanks to Judi Van Gorder for the wonderful resource at PMO
My Example Poem
 
 
Dribble    (Cadence)
 
Froth
Bubbles
and rises
to top of glass,
then overflows
to prove the barkeep gave you yours,
Now you’ll smell like brew.
