Alone I Live in the Dream of Tomorrows
|A||I dream love’s moonlit hero went for||I|
|L||a swim in the moon, forever rooted||L|
|O||onto waves of terror. Hemmed in||I|
|N||with a foredoom no mere rest||V|
|E||reforms. I woo the dormant||E|
|morrow adrift on moths|
An odd, self imposed torture and I believe, an original form, each line is an anagram of the one previous (first line is anagrammed from the title) with two letters removed. These removed letters form a type of acrostic, as they spell out the first three words in the title.
Since I think I just invented this poetic form, I’ll call it a Lindacs Poem, until someone bursts my inventive bubble and informs me otherwise!
