combine different forms,
bits of this, bits of that,
mock tail of poetry,
a go- gaga???
two syllable forms i choose, with their syllable counts intact,
4 lines of abhanga with breezy phrases of gogyohka , rhymes i subtract,
5 lines of gogyohka with abhanga influence of rhyme , fully stacked,
a role reversal decoction,
what i didn’t except -a heady concoction.
Go- from Gogyohka ; Ga – from Abhanga and one more ga to make it a fun word gaga.
Behind the scenes :- I have combined Abhanga syllable form and Gogyohka form. While keeping the syllable counts of Abhanga (6/6/6/4) and Gogyohka form ( phrases, no syllables restriction as such) intact , I have tweaked with their rhyme scheme condition. Abhanga requires use of rhymes and Gogyohka doesn’t require use of rhymes, I have interchanged and come up with this go-gaga form. ( You would have understood the same from the poem above.)
Acknowledgements :- Written in response to Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday challenge #232. This week the challenge is to combine 2 different syllable poetry forms and come up with a new form. For rules please refer here. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
