Cinque Terre This and a Cinque Terre That

Here is another invented poetry form created by Laura Lamarca called CinqTroisDecaLa Rhyme. That’s a mouthful. This is a 10-line stanza with each line having a 15-syllable count with a rhyme scheme of AABBCCCABC.

The name of the poem Cinq made me think of the Cinque Terre. It’s where we went on my honeymoon. 

Cinque Terre

Visions of such natural beauty goes beyond expectations
Designs sublime, magical to see, sustained generations
Hearts and minds amazed by the miracles brought forth in decor
Scenic nature, copies fail, originals we adore
Mountains, curves, straight lines of color, a glorious obsession
History of aged rock, earth corrodes, water makes impression
Creative arts are hard at work to find the right expression
Control moved from family to nation with declarations
Notable moments of love and war, bloodshed upon its shore
Its splendor holds strong; exists in peace away from aggression

Landscape and Emotion,

  1. I really like how the 15-syllable count lines help bring in certain word choices you might not otherwise think to try. I most like this line: "History of aged rock, earth corrodes, water makes impression."
