2- ~The Tree~


" The tree " poetry form, is a poetry style created by Dorian Petersen Potter,
on September, 20,2009.

This form starts with 8 lines that begin with 1 syllabel, increasing until the 8th line, you
end up with 8 syllables.On line 9 you use the first word from the stanza, but write it
horizontally by letter, followed by the two words that were line 2 of each stanza.It can
be one stanza or multiple ones.There is no rhyme scheme but this is a bonus if done.
And the subject is optional, up to the poet.



3- " Blessed Cross"



The " Blessed Cross" is a poetry form created by Dorian Petersen Potter,
on October 14,2009.

This form consist of 4 Quatrains, and 1 sestet of 6 refrain lines each.
Three quatrains go down and they can have either a syllable count of 6, or 8
syllables . Consistent syllable count, tha means that if you choose 6 syllables
for the first quatrain stanza, the other 2 quatrains have to be done with the
same 6 syllables count.If you decide to do the first quatrain with 8 syllables,
the other 2 quatrain stanzas then have to be done with 8 syllables too.
Only one Quatrain is done with a syllable count of 12 and that goes across to
form the cross shape.All four Quatrains are done in couplet lines.
Pattern scheme goes like this:

First Quatrain....6 or 8, (done in couplet lines of either syllable count chosen 6 or 8)
Second Quatrain...12 syllables (done in couplet lines)
Third Quatrain...6 or 8 (done in couplet lines.The same syllable count as quatrain 1)
Fourth Quatrain...6 or 8, (done in couplet lines.The same syllable count as quatrain 1 and 2)

1 Sestet(6 last lines of poem) they go as follow:
First line: First line(refrain) of first Quatrain is repeated here
Second line: Second line( refrain) of first Quatrain is repeated here
Third line: First line(refrain) of second Quatrain is repeated here.
Fourth line: Second line(refrain) of second Quatrain, is repeated here
Fifth line: First line(refrain) of third Quatrain is repeated here.
Sixth line: Second line(refrain) of third Quatrain is repeated here.

Subject: Spiritual or uplifting in nature.

It has to be center aligned to show the form of the cross.I observed that the
6 syllable count, shows better the beauty of the cross shape than the 8 syllable
count, but that's only my opinion.I like them both ways.You make your choice.


4-~'Star Of David' ~

The 'Star of David' is a new poetry
form created by Dorian Petersen Potter,
on October 22,2009.

This poetic concrete form consitst of 19 lines.
Rhyme is optional.This is left to the poet.
The syllable count for this format is as follows:
At the very top and going down and across, begin with thes number of syllables:
1,2,3,4,5 and then continuing down and across do 11,10,8,8,7,8,9,10, 11,5,4,3,2, and end with 1 syllable.
This form has to allign in the center, if you have done correctly the syllable count lines, you'll see and have a very pretty star shape. I decided to call it the ' Star of David' because that's what it looked like to me,after I've done it.
Subject: Spiritual, inspirational or uplifting in nature.



5- "Sonnetina Rispetto"

The "Sonnetina Rispetto" is a new poetry form
created by Dorian Petersen Potter

The capitals A1,A2,B1 and B2...stands for the refrain lines in the poem.

Any subject.

The other four seasons and theres just none

Colours as they show beautiful hues
Sometimes you can smell cinnamon
Which lingers on the air with
Pumpkin pie in the mix
Children have fun
Play with leaves
That covers
