Invented Poetry Forms – The Cascada Viente posted by Paul’s Poetry Playground

Sharing a new classical poetry form via Paul’s Poetry Playground. The Cascada Viente was created by the very talented poet, writer, and blogger Brad Osborne and his wonderful blog Commonsensibly Speaking.

The cascada viente is a twenty line poem containing five stanzas of four lines a piece (quatrains). It is isosyllabic with no required meter and has seven syllables per line. Its rhyme scheme consists of cascading alternate doubles and can be expressed as abab bcbc cdcd dede efef.

Give it a try and let Paul and Brad know how you liked it.

  1. That does sound like an interesting form. I will have to give it a try.

  2. I’m not a wordsmith, but I enjoy those that are.

    Have a fabulous day, Eugenia. ♥

  3. water flowing down
    silver s cascade
    an array
    of the gravity
    of wetness
    carve away the stone
    and do not leave us alone wo ya beauty!
