Ropalic Notes

The Ropalic seems to be easy at first glance, but actually requires a lot of hard work to accomplish a piece to a poet’s satisfaction. The rules are simple enough, with each line the first word is monosyllabic, the second has two syllables, the third three and so on. There is no rhyme or meter specification.

Example

Dawn by Leny Roovers

As petals awaken expectantly,
dawn’s dewdrop reflection-
a silken temptation;
lips linger, lusciously satisfying
