Music of Sirens

I
Got the
Beat, I got
Flowing nature
Cosmic significance of Tetractys
Ill-conceived idea that truth will be found
Decimal dread
Notation
Number
Lie

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Lucky Dip hosted by weejars aka Sarah where she has asked us to write a Tetractys poem and I chose the double which has a syllable count of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 10, 4, 3, 2, 1.

  1. Thanks Eugenia, but I have never found it difficult to create fixed or constrained number of syllables per line in poetry and I feel that anyone could write this type of poem.

      1. Well, maybe size matters. I didn’t respond to this prompt because I misread the instructions and thought we were supposed to write a Pterodactyl, not a Tetractys.
