Music of Sirens

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

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.
