Parallelogram de Crystalline

I found this form on the Poetic Bloomings site run by Marie Elena and Walt. It is brand new to me and I love it! Here is their description of the form:

“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…”

Head over to Poetic Bloomings for some extraordinary examples and then give it a try yourself. Here’s mine:

“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.


Speak to me of thoughts unspoken.
