Mystique Sonetillo Acróstico

This form was created by  Alberto Jose Alvarez Gonzalez aka MystiqueWizzard

It is a mixture of  Acrostic, Sonetillo and English Sonnet as it would end with rhyming couplet.

Here´s the twist:
8 syllables : Stanzas 1 -3
7 syllables  :Stanza 2 and couplet
(8/8/8/8/7/7/7/7/8/8/8/8/7/7)

Rhyming Scheme is: abba bccb cddc ee, (abbabccbcddcee)

The closing couplet must conclude what’s stated in the first two stanzas and
the third stanza will be a little change in the direction of the statement( light volta).
You must choose a theme that holds 14 letters so you can make it acrostic.

The theme MUST be a satire or hold an obvious satirical tonality.

Example Poem

Transformation

America, Obama said,
Needs fundamental change– and hope.
That he, a dream black, clean as soap,
Implied would be so free of dread.

Can’t ‘member him saying “Nope,
All thru creating, so much
Prosperity– losing touch
Indeed with the poor man’s need.”

There’s green that needs the Fed’s soft touch.
All businesses need our control
Lest they be soon on public dole.
Imagine! We can be your crutch.

So yep,  I do have small change.
That’s one thing he did arrange.

Time Coupletnelle

This is a form invented by MystiqueWizzard, aka Alberto Jose Alvarez Gonzalez

The Time Coupletnelle is a 16-line poem conformed by 8 couplets
with a rhyme scheme  AabbccddccddaA*AA*,
The syllabic progression  is:  9/8/7/6/7/8/9/9

The first 3 couplets represent a “plea”
the 4th couplet is an assertion that portrays what the plea evokes;
the last 3 couplets are the conclusion based on the first 4 couplets.

The themes may vary but basically they´re centered in love, sadness, hope or another strong
emotion worth exploring. It was named “Time Coupletnelle “because it isset in a progression of time and the visual shape is like an hour glass.

The structure should always be centered for visual effect.

Example Poem:

I Must Ask
I can’t carry on without your love.
I go through the actions, just kind of.
I think you like me but how much?
I daydream thinking of your touch.
I wait all week to date you
I’m bewitched is my friends’ view.
Action now is required,
waiting time has expired.
This week, waiting time is thru.
A diamond makes its debut.
You’ll see how much you are desired,
how much you’re treasured and admired.
I’ll bring a rose and a turtle dove.
I’ll be your hand, if you’ll  be my glove.
I cannot carry without your love.
I’ll be your hand, if you’ll  be my glove.
