Loop Poetry

Here are the guidelines for Loop Poetry:

1) No restrictions on the number of stanzas or the syllable count for each line;
2) For each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two,
the last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3,
and the last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4;
3) The rhyme scheme is abcb.


being with you is magic
magic as in worth living
living a dream forever
forever we grow old and ageing

love is happiness
happiness shared with you
you and I together
together we stick like glue

why is the sky so blue?
blue as the wavy sea
sea breeze and summer dream
dream as my love for thee

the tang of the luscious exotic dishes
dishes on display and others being cooked
cooked to tantalise our senses as we walk
walk to tables set in a row and we looked

tempting as it was, I didn’t grab them
them in my desire to try and taste
taste that’s more tantalising – a pulled pork
pork adobo and menudo – that’s aced

Richard appreciated the bakeries and the pastries
pastries and the smell of fresh bread and the coffee
coffee, as well as the sight of the tantalising meat cuts
cuts them up and taste them and fills up his trolley

the butter taste was rich and tantalising while the
the velvetiness of the fresh cream and yoghurt mix
mix was balanced by a kick of almond and sultana
sultana – ah, that did it for me as I get my sweet fix
