Electric Vision – poem


Skeletal giants of power,

silently unseen in plain sight.

 Picking their way across the land,

skirting the inhabited zones.

 Wading the aisles between trees;

 stalking the byways tirelessly.

 Tip-toeing across tall ridges,

 spanning valleys  effortlessly.

 Delicately lifting their lines

over lanes, roads, rivers and fields.

 Wordlessly delivering the

planet’s invisible lifeblood.

I seem to incline toward poems of 8 syllables and finally found a description of what that might be properly called at http://www.thefullwiki.org/Meter_%28poetry%29 :

Meters were extensively explored in Brazilian literature, notably during Parnassianism. The most notable ones were…

  • Barbarian (bárbaro): composed of 13 or more syllables:
    • Lucasian (lucasiano): composed of 16 feet, divided into two hemistiches of 8 syllables each.

Have any thoughts?
