Original eight lines of plunge into nonexistence:
i watched the ripples on the surfaceRewrite in anapest feet--though truth be told i have a hard time hearing this type of beat...
as i sank into nonexistence
spread far beyond my reach
fading into the distance
until they too were nonexistent
so mesmerized by this was i
i barely noticed the true picture
while I stare at the surface where ripples do spread
nonexistence takes hold as I sink far beneath
waves of beautiful circles of light
in the distance beyond my short reach they do fade
‘til they too disappear from existence and sight
so enthralled by this small fact was I
the true picture I barely did notice it’s truth
this reflection into poetic feet was the result of a challenge set forth at One Stop Poetry's Form Monday. i'm not so sure how well i hit the mark on this challenge, but the description of the prosody was quite informative.
