i’ve been eyeing this style for a while, but had no idea what to do. diminishing verse poetry is basically where the last word of each line adds up to a larger word.
an example to make life easier-
the first word would be small
then followed by mall
and lastly, all.
the attempt below is pretty awful. it took me a while to find a word to work with in the first place, and constructing an entire poem around the word was a whole other issue in itself… xD!
this is my best shot-
the rivers are too dirty, the air is too still,
we promised Her! we promised Her faith till-
till the end of time. instead, we’ve made Her ill…
thanks for reading.
