I'm writing sonnets right now and seem to be forever tapping out meter and stresses, so this week I've picked a form that requires some syllable counting. Rictameter is a nine line, unrhymed poetry form in which the 1st and last lines are the same. The syllable count is 2/4/6/8/10/8/6/4/2.
You can learn more about this form and read some examples at the group site Rictameter.
What kind of rictameter will you write? Leave me a note about your poem and I'll post the results here later this week.
