Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
|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.
line 1: 9 syllables
line 2: 8 syllables
line 3: 6 syllables
line 4: 9 syllables
line 5: 6 syllables
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.
