Five Alive

five
seeds fly
up sky high
letting the wind
find their inner birds until warm earth calls

Welcome to my Autumn Shindig!

Please post a seasonal link here or in the comments:

Notes: My poem is my first ever tetractys, or a 5-lined, syllable-counting poetry form, organized as follows:

Line 1 – 1 syllable
Line 2 – 2 syllables
Line 3 – 3 syllables
Line 4 – 4 syllables
Line 5 – 10 syllables

To rhyme or not to rhyme, hmmm. Here’s an example from the talented Aussie poet, Kathryn Apel:

Class
erupts
as teacher
flees in terror,
huntsman spider ignorant of error.

Final note: This is my first attempt to use inlinkz. It’s a dry run for getting it to work when I host Poetry Friday this Friday! I’d really appreciate you adding a link. I need to know it’s working!!
