A Diminuendo of Diminished Hexaverse

Consequences

Disintegrating
mores unfold—
running wild
feral
child

 

 

Twenty-one...Today

Beauty is asleep
innocence is dead
grace passe—
ego
rules

 

 

Situation Ethics

Eternal values
of yesteryear—
cast upon
winds of
change

 

 

Give & Take

Fascination held
in passion's grip
may kindle
one-track
minds

Capitivation held
in ardour's grasp
will secrete
selfless
love.

 

NOTE: Diminished Hexaverse

A poem containing stanzas of 5 lines, then 4 lines, then 3 lines, then 2 lines, ending with one word. The syllables in each stanza correspond to the number of lines, i.e. 5 in each line in the first stanza, 4 in the second stanza and so on. This form may contain more than five stanzas.
