Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 5 October 2019!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Monotetra. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Monotetra?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form, is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.
Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4
