what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice
whenever the red golds of poetry toyed
with strange tides that unfurled, lifted the air’s tight
feathers, when abstract thought was always ever
a place of comfort
that stitched meaning to the lining of my days –
there i made my own blanket to lie upon,
frantic with the need to see a sky filtered
through poplar branches
and forests filled with words, lakes of tales
to be fished for before they could be told.
i went once, to say yes to the telling,
and never returned.
The Sapphic stanza is a syllable/meter-based poetic structure from Ancient Greece and contains dactyls and trochees. Confused? Try writing one. It’s much better explained here.
I’m not so sure that I have done the original form justice, due to correctly-placed syllabic stresses of words – or lack of them, in my case – but from what I can see from the structure of The Anactoria Poem, each four line stanza contains 11 syllables in each of the first 3 lines and the fourth line contains 5 syllables.
