Tetractys 
Invented by Ray Stebbing, a Tetractys poem can be done a few different ways. It is a 5 line poem with the 1st line having one syllable, the 2nd line two syllables, the 3rd line three syllables, the 4th line four syllables and the 5th line 10 syllables (1,2,3,4, 10) You may also do this in reverse (10,4,3,2,1) or a double Tetractys (1,2,3,4,10, 10,4,3,2,1) 


Hope ignites passion's flame with a promise fanning the smoldering embers of love fanning the smoldering embers of love with a promise passion's flame ignites Hope love leads to happiness without question they are the pinnacle of emotions they are the pinnacle of emotions without question happiness leads to love (Tetractys) 09,28,2019 Any Poem You Want to Write 50 Words or Less Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Caren Krutsinger

Oh that's VERY clever. What a thought-provoking poem, and one of those where you just stand back and admire the writing! Never read a teractys I liked, but there you go. There's a first for everything!
