Invented Forms


  • Harrisham Rhyme is a recent invented verse form named for its creator, Harrisham Minhas from Punjab, India.



    The Harrisham Rhyme is:

    • a hexastich, a poem in six lines.
    • written with meter or syllable count at the discretion of the poet.
    • rhymed, ababab.
    • written with sort of chain at the beginning of each line. The last letter of the first word of each line is the first letter of the first word of the next line. The first word of the poem may begin with any letter.


      Morning Stillness by Judi Van Gorder


      Silence all around

      even the birds hold their tune

      not a barking dog can be found

      time ticks toward noon

      ending the morning without a sound

      genuine quiet will end too soon.

    Poetry by Harrisham Minhas @ Shadow Poetry.
