Eddying

A
young
stream fills
the spring woods,
fizzes and chatters,
bubbling up from its aquifer.

At first it forms a tiny pool,
clear and natural,
eddying,
until
spring
floods.

My response to NaPoWriMo Day Seven

Today’s prompt asks us to choose a syllable-based form: the shadorma, a six-line, 26-syllable poem or stanza – a poem can be made of multiple shadorma stanzas, with a syllable count by line of 3/5/3/3/7/5; or the Fib, a six-line form in which the the syllable count is based on the Fibonacci sequence of 1/1/2/3/5/8 – again multiple Fibs can be linked together in a multi-stanza poem, or even start going backwards after the first six lines, with syllable counts of 8/5/3/2/1/1. I chose the Fib – not as easy as it looks!
