Tale Weaver # 131 – 10th August 2017 – Birth

I am the second child of my parents
Parents were lovely and not so strict

The son was premature, when he was born
Born in the month of May in the morn

I’m a Sagittarius woman
Woman of fire and air
Air as I love to travel
Travel to different places

My birthday is in December
December ten and I’m an archer

I was born in Manila
Manila is the capital of the Philippines

Philippines is such a lovely country
Country with 7,100 islands
Islands big and small, far and wide
Wide awake to see all the nature

I’m a Filipino by birth
Birth, bred and I know my worth

So for my birthday, I’d travel
To different places while I’m able*

* Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.

Variations:

1. Stanzas, writers choice on the number, no rhyming, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.

2. One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.

3. Couplets mixed with 4 line stanzas, the last word, first word scheme is maintained in the stanzas. It can also be used in the couplets. Rhyme scheme is ab, cc, defg, hh, ii, jklm, nn, oo.
