Weekend Writing Prompt #15 – Intricate

vines-coiling

Oh the intricacies of life
He loves her, she loves another
Two men fight for the same woman

One needs another holiday after having one
It wasn’t that easy getting what you want
Oh the intricacies of life

All is fair in love, they say
Still, some are not equal than the others
He loves her, she loves another

Fiction or non-fiction? Hard to tell
Which one is following which?
Two men fight for the same woman*

* Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C

  1. Hey Ladylee,

    Oh those infernal love triangles and their perplexing intricacies! A wonderful response to the challenge. Thank you.

    I enjoyed the structure and form and can think of application where repetitiveness reinforces themes and give added respect to certain words.

    Enjoy your Sunday and the week ahead. Take care.

    Namaste 🙂
