Poetic Form of the Week – Joseph’s Star

Greetings!

The Poetic Form of the Week is Joseph’s Star.

Syllables are 1, 3, 5, 7, 7, 5, 3, and 1. The poem may be written on any subject, be center aligned, has no stanza limit, and should have complete statements in each line.

Example:
Tribute to Parents

               Dad
            I do miss
      I think of our love
  I fall back on memories
I know your together now
       I have no sadness
            For now I 
               Write

               ****

               Mom
           I love you
    I feel your presence
I know you are real happy
  You are in paradise now
  You tend God’s gardens
           On bended
              Knee

              ****

                    I
             Hear angels
       You are both among
 Mom greets the new arrivals
Dad escorts them to meet God
     As Daughter I’m proud
             To be your
                 Seed

               ****

               Now
       You must wait
 God helps me with verse
I write to praise Holy name
 Both of you are guardians
     I cherish you both
             Forever
              Yours
