Friday Fictioneers – The vanguard of civilisation

The vanguard of civilisation

The journey of man to the moon

With cornbread, rice and potatoes

All with love, power at a glance

Different accents, talents and scents

The vanguard of civilisation

Every  breath one takes matters

Captivating the world of brilliance

The journey of man to the moon

Taking the challenge as it comes

Even with hindrance we still try

With cornbread, rice and potatoes*

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
