OKAY — I’m trying something new and don’t know what the H.E. double L I’m doing.  These are the rules for the following particular kind of poem that someone must have made up when they were drunk on a boat looking at the sunset.

“Sidlak Poetry  is a structured poetry consisting of five lines with 3-5-7-9 syllables and a color. The last line must be a color that describes the whole poem or the feeling of the writer.”

When I die,

leaving Earth behind,

the moment of departure

as spirit forsakes nature’s cocoon,

my mind will smile at an azure peace.
