I couldn’t resist doing some Hourglass poetry too, via Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge: https://janedougherty.wordpress.com/2016/03/02/poetry-challenge-20-hourglass-poetry/
More about the form: ten lines with a syllable count of 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.5, on Jane’s blog. Basically you end up with nine lines.
True happiness lives
Lies in the
Death clings on
Simple Moments Shared.
Hope you liked my hourglass poetry, it’s a bit of a paradoxical one about happiness too. Hope it doesn’t give you the heeby-geebies.
Bye for now,
