Rules of a Pentastitch:

a pentastich, a complete poem in a 5 lines.
syllabic, with a progressive syllable count 1-2-3-4-10 per line.
sometimes written as a Double Tetractys (2 quintains), when doubled the syllabic pattern is reversed, 1-2-3-4-10-10-4-3-2-1.

  1. great blog and I must say that the Pentastitch format is kind of intriguing. Since I am trying to understand the method, I have a doubt after reading the last line of your poem… “its us, who fail to be there and then!”, the syllable count falls short of 10.

    But this is a doubt I’ve always had:Do we consider words like “its” which are merged forms of two different words, as two syllables or as it’s constituent independent syllable count.

    But great blog… you have expressed wonderful ideas with the pentastitch method..

  2. Time is a healer too. We are often wasting time by killing time. Time is the bubble in which we live and exist. And when our bubble burst – time is up !
