through and through my waking life needs change
my hopes and dreams long-range
my path continues to wander
yes, and how
my waking life is living again
alive and full of vim
my path continues to flourish
Think of times you’ve felt revived, reinvigorated, alive — maybe through an experience, or living again through a new generation of humans or technology or thoughts, feeling happy about still being relevant or just existing.
Let your thoughts take you to fresher pastures.
The poetry form is the Mariannet as discussed in Paul’s Poetry Playground.
The Mariannet is an isosyllabic rhyming poem, consisting of one or more five-line stanzas (quintains) with one syllable in the first line, three in the second, nine in the third, six in the fourth, and eight in the fifth and final line. The first two lines rhyme with each other, and so does the third and fourth, but the fifth is nonrhyming and does not rhyme with any other lines.
