Sunrise Over the Pond

The rising of the morning’s jewel, the sun,
wakes me up today.
Reborn I walk by grace
following the way.

Eugenia offers the word “jewels” for this week’s prompt.

The syllable count (10,5,6,5) for this poem comes from a form created by Myrna Migala to imitate the pattern found in the name Yahweh (yod -10, yeh-5, vav-6, hey-5) and a similar pattern found in DNA. Since the letter ה was used twice I added the rhyme pattern ABCB.

I just found out that RevivedWriter has provided another example of this stanza form in her poem “Staunch Support”.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Wow, nothing like this has ever happened to me, I didn’t think I was creating anything, and your poem Frank put the icing on the cake. Thank you! Thank you twice for your poem here, I love it!

    1. I am glad you love poem. Thank you for bringing my attention back to that video. I saw it on MeWe some time ago, but did not understand what the DNA pattern was that matched the name of Yahweh. I’m still sorting that out but I think I see it counting the connectors in this video (see the graphic at 0:34) :
