Chronos~s
The Chronos is a new form. The ~s stands for the fact that this form is written in syllables. It is developed by my own daughter Alexa Boonstra, and myself. We were discussing some formula's a few weeks ago, while she was learning hard for her math test.

She asked me what Pi2 was. (here I go with my wisdom) Question marks in my eyes were popping up and she said dry: "Chronos".

So: Pi2 = Chronos.

She took her calculator out, which is half a computer anyway by itself and showed me. I noted down the outcome and pondered on it. An idea popped in my mind, Chronos as poetry form was born.

Chronos = 9,8696

Chronos is a single stanza poem.

In lines:
line 1: 9 syllables
line 2: 8 syllables
line 3: 6 syllables
line 4: 9 syllables
line 5: 6 syllables

An example:

Branches waving in the autumn wind
chilly air refreshes my mind
numbness in my fingers.
It won't take long, until winter comes
without you it feels cold.
