Poetry- The Immortal Tree

Hey all!I’m back with a new form of poetry,I call it the quaranlet, named after my strange username. Enjoy!

A grand,ageing tree,
The growth of which eternal,
Branches spread wide from trunk immortal;
Flowers bloom bright, fruits turn ripe,
Magic of mankind,

A grand,ageing tree
Eyed by trivial mortals,
Boundless admiration eternal
For verses racing along,

-The Forgers of Fantasy

The Quaranlet:
1.It is made of one heptastitch and one hexastitch.
2.The syllable count is 3-5-7-9-7-5-3 for the heptastitch, and 3-5-7-9-7-5 for the hexastitch.
3.The rhyme scheme is a-a-b-b-c-d-a-a-a-b-b-e-f.

This has been penned for #TankaTuesday, where poets were asked to create their own form of syllabilic poetry and pen a poem based on that. You can access the prompt at https://wordcraftpoetry.com/2022/03/08/tankatuesday-poetry-challenge-no-264-3-8-22-create-your-own-syllabic-form/ .

This has also been penned for the DVerse Quadrille prompt, where poets were asked to pen quadrilles including any form of the word eye. You can access the prompt at https://dversepoets.com/2022/03/07/eyeing-the-quadrille-147/ .
