My still voice - a diminishing hexaverse

Bid me write a poem
For my heart boils up
Wisdom, sense and skill
Emotions trapped in
Everyday’s business

Bid me to sing
Those songs unsung
Lying in books
iPad and phone

For a soul
yearns to hear
my still voice

In word
In song


Did you notice the tapering structure of the poem?
It starts with a stanza of 5 lines made of 5 syllables each, then a 4-line stanza of 4 syllables each, down to one stanza of one syllable.

This type of poem is called a Diminishing Hexaverse or Diminished Hexaverse.

Please share your comments on what you think of the poem. Thanks
