Cascade Poem

A Poem by Maglia Weaver Twill
"

The cascade poem was a form invented by Udit Bhatia. For the cascade poem, a poet takes each line from the first stanza of a poem and makes those the final lines of each stanza afterwards.

Happen/ Skin Diver


Somewhere over the rainbow,
Umbrellas take their stand.
Cruel humor that looks books

Confidently; his punctilio,
Etiquette. Centuries spanned
Diaphanous rainbow

Enlivens the drab horizon.
Repatriations ex banishment.
Enterprises stand.


Skin divers swim, with flippers
Underwater, someone’s Jacques makes
Bubbles instead of books…

A clever bit of absurdism here. Love the way you turn images around and around.

Yes it can be any poem, there are no meter or syllable restrictions, the only rule established is the line repetition is that, it looks like/or the pattern is ABC xxA xxB xxC, of course in the mathematical age we can do what we like with it, extend it,

oh ok thank you for that wee lesson at the top there, I am going to give that a go for sure, how inspiring, can it be any poem? Does it have to be the same poet?

what a neat little project.

Your words always seem to cry out for an image to be formed - and it is, they seem to dance and bounce around refusing to settle, bringing them to life ...

Thanks for sharing xx
