“In your arms”

I waited and waited for the Poetic Asides prompt yesterday and got a little antsy when it didn’t show up so I headed over to Poetic Bloomings and found a new form to try. Since this form is completely unfamiliar to me, I am quoting what Marie Elena and Walt posted in their blog:

“Parallelogram de Crystalline is a poetry form created by Karan Naidu. This form consists of 4 verses of 3 lines each. The syllable count for each stanza is 3, 6, 9. In this style of poem, the beauty of a person is usually compared with nature and described in those terms…”

I loved this form. It flows smoothly and has just enough parameters to spark beauty.

“In your arms”

I would dig
beneath the sea for one
pearl that reflects the purity of

your heart so
I could see you again,
to feel the silk of your voice in my

dry blue soul.
I wear your ring but it
doesn’t bring me nearer to you where

I belong
inside you, safe from the
world beneath the sun, wrapped in your arms.
